Have you hired a private investigator, for any purpose? I am considering doing this, and I would like to hear experiences from people who have.

I am considering hiring a private investigator to look into a crime that was committed some years ago. For purposes of this question, please assume police are not an option. I have enough information that a private investigator might be able to uncover a lead. (If that happens, I have not decided whether I will pursue further.)
This is a difficult decision, and it would help to hear some real-life experiences from people who have done this. I would be interested in hearing as many details as you're willing to share—how you located the investigator, his fee, how much information you needed to give him, and what were the results.
Thanks in advance. This is only one piece of the puzzle that I am struggling with, but it would provide some foothold. I appreciate whatever you can tell me about your experience.
