"Whether doing a background check on a new hire or on a potential partner company, this book lays out search tools and methods, and explains how information (or lack thereof) can lead investigators to use other less-known resources. The guide also includes a sample final report, sample contracts, and a comprehensive list of social media sites. While reading, I found myself marking pages for later reference and putting the book down to try out a new tool or technique."

"The chapter on assets and lien searches is especially well written and useful."

"This guidebook should be on every investigator’s desk. If you get stuck on an investigation, this book can help get your project back on track. The Guide to Online Due Diligence is a good resource for investigators in both the private and government sectors."
