Mannix worked originally for Wickersham at Intertect and then struck out on his own, assisted by Peggy Fair (whose cop-husband had been killed) and Police Department contact Tobias.
The olive-colored books with black and red trim seen behind Mannix's, and occasionally behind Peggy's desks were law books often seen in attorneys' offices, which contain sequential reported appeals court decisions. As it would be unlikely for a real-life private investigator to have law books in his office, they were probably chosen simply because they were an attractive way to fill up the bookshelves, and because they could be acquired somewhat inexpensively from a bookstore or a retiring attorney.
