BRADY COYNE is a Boston lawyer, but the books have nothing to do with legal hijinks. He gets involved in a lot of shit, sometimes as a corollary to his legal practice, but more often as a favor to a friend or out of simple curiosity/outraged sense of honor, as in Cutter's Run (1998), arguably the best and certainly the toughest of the series. His favorite fishing buddy is the Rick Boyer's hard-boiled dentist Doc Adams, who has yet to appear in a Coyne novel, but is mentioned in every book in the series.
Both characters qualify as private eyes by your definition and certainly by mine "one involved in an investigation for a private party or for private reasons." Like early Perry Mason, Brady seems to favor a hands-on approach to criminal justice.
BY THE WAY...
