Listen To What Others Are Saying:

"Paul Ciolino is a renowned and sometimes reviled investigator who exposes the underbelly of the system's disgraceful treatment of the wrongfully convicted criminal defendant. in The Company Of Giants is mandatory reading for every investigator who has an interest in justice and wants to do something about it. This is a stark examination that shows you how to fix the wrongful conviction case."
- Buddy Bombet, Former President of Louisiana State Board Of Private Investigators and considered by many to be the father or modern day private investigative practice.

"Most private investigators get into this professional for the bucks but every once in a while, a man emerges from the profession that is fighting for a cause. When it comes to the wrongfully accused, that man is Paul Ciolino. This man is hard-nosed, street smart, controversial and VERY effective."
- Ralph Thomas, Author, Founder And Director, National Association Of Investigative Specialists

"I am the living example of why this book is so important. I was wrongfully convicted and I spent 16 years on Illinois death Row for seven homicides I didn't commit. When I was released and pardoned in 2003 it was because of the tactics and strategies described here. In The Company of Giants will hopefully save you or a loved one from a similar fate."
- Madison Hobly, Chicago, Illinois, Former Death Row Inmate Exonerated.

"As one of America's leading private investigators-the tough-talking, butt-kicking kind you thought existed only in imaginations of Hollywood screen-writers-Paul Ciolino has spent decades helping to bring Chicago's guilty to justice and freeing her innocent from death row. When Ciolino talks about the criminal justice system, it pays to listen."
-James Rosen, White House Correspondent, Fox News

“Paul Ciolino is old school. Right is right and wrong is wrong. With street smarts and a sixth sense for where to look, Ciolino won’t let go until he’s found what he’s looking for, which is quite simply justice. And now he’s written a highly readable, straight-ahead, tell-it-like-it-is guide to let us in on what he knows.”
- Alex Kotlowitz, Author of There Are No Children Here, Never a City So Real, and The Other Side of the River

Herein lies the root of the issue. Justice, morality, and freedom. This is what our fight is about. This is what it boils down to for me and I hope for you as well. Money is nice. Professional recognition by our peers is great. Warm and fuzzy media stories about our quest for justice are ego enriching. But, at the end of the day, it is about our most basic and dearest God inspired constitutional rights as Americans. This is what the wrongful conviction case is about, and this is why we find ourselves doing this work.

If you do criminal defense investigations and only buy one book, this is the one you need. The investigative techniques exposed in this hard-hitting material is literally a matter of life and death.
