c/o Lew Wickersham
Los Angeles, CA
Intertect is a private high-tech security firm. Its best operative is Joseph
Mannix, an ex-Air Force pilot and Korean War veteran who was hired in the
mid-1960s. Joe had received his private investigator’s license [#13007] in 1955.
Intertect issued Joe a standard .38 revolver but he preferred his own .45 Colt
semi-automatic. Despite the Intertect’s emphasis on computer hardware, Joe
preferred good old fisticuffs to solve a problem. In the late 1960s, Joe left
Intertect and opened his own private investigation firm.
