The tales of globe-trotting Private Investigator and former CIA agent Jefferson Keyes (James Farentino) who charged a million-dollar fee – in advance – per case.
Of course, he had to pay all his own expenses out of that – his own jet plane, the entertainment for all the gorgeous suspects who draped themselves over him and so on. And he did offer a money-back guarantee if he failed to crack the case.
James Farentino’s career came to a withering halt in the 1990s after he was arrested for cocaine possession and charged with stalking Frank Sinatra’s daughter Tina (his former girlfriend). He died on 24 January 2012 at a hospital in Los Angeles, aged 73.
