    Private Eye    (about)
    Private Eye featured stories of hoodlums and small-time crooks, private investigators and the police, and some stories with surprise endings. Despite containing a good selection of contemporary crime-adventure and mystery stories by well-known authors, the magazine folded after only two issues, publishing material that was too little different from so many others.
