Embezzlement, graft, fraud and money laundering are among the hardest crimes to prosecute. Investigation is
impossible without an understanding of the law, accounting, finance, and banking procedures. Law enforcement
must have the proper weapons to combat the evolving sophistication of financial crimes.

Financial Investigation and Forensic Accounting offers a thorough examination of current methods and legal concerns for the detection and prosecution of economic crime. The author is an I.R.S. agent with 15 years experience in fraud investigation.


The book guides law enforcement and prosecutors from detection through indictment and conviction. The author explains the mechanics of gambling, fraud and money laundering. He illustrates how prosecutors present the tax codes, off-shore banking laws, and the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) statutes to judges and juries.
