Issue 10

cover of issue #10,Donelan

Confidential Investigations 10 was published in October 1990 and contains 70 pages.

From the editor: "As for this issue -- since CI #5, the Professionals crossover issue, was so much fun for us, we decided to do it again! This time we got a couple very talented authors to help us -- Hephaiston and Robbie, thanks!! When the issue got too crowded, we had to make some decisions. So Jeannie Marie's universe will resume in the next issue, and Karen's Crossing the Line series is in here. And we've decided to save a little money for you by deleting our 'centerfolds' -- plus we were running out of photos we hadn't over-used!"

Issue 11

cover of issue #11, Donelan

Confidential Investigations 11 contains 87 pages and was published in March 1991. It was the final issue.

Note from editor: "Well, I realize this is going to be a shock to some (most) of you, but I'm afraid we're folding CI with this issue. Now stop, put that down, let me explain!!!!! It's been quite a while since I've recieved any new submissions (aside from ongoing series, and even those are either being written to the deadlines or wrapping up naturally), and I realized that I had backlog for only three authors. Rather than run older pieces from Robbie, Kathy and Jeannie Marie, we decided we could easily roll these pieces into future issues of Frisky Business (just the way it used to be!) So, that's what we've done. You are now looking at the last of the series."
