This is a fascinating,insider look at a fraud investigation, designed to help you betterunderstand fraud detection, investigation, andprevention—from the inside out.

Written by a seasoned investigator with over twenty-two years ofexperience conducting fraud investigations, this unique bookarticulates the investigative thought process through an authenticcase, from the first tip to the forensic accountant that fraud issuspected, to the final judgment in court. No detail is too smallhere, with consideration given to sometimes-overlooked details,including:

  • How does a case come to light in the first place?

  • Who are the individuals behind the scene putting the casetogether, sifting through ledgers, cancelled checks, and otherrecords that comprise a mountain of evidence?

  • Who handles all the information, and where is evidencestored?

  • Who are the witnesses, and how can you know if the suspect actedalone or with the assistance of an accomplice?

  • If computer forensics is involved, how can you extract the mostevidence from the suspects' computers?

Unpacking the finer points that make fraud investigative workinteresting and challenging, Anatomy of a FraudInvestigation breaks down the "juicy details" of a fraudinvestigation from beginning to end, with a you-are-there analysisof the steps and measures involved in each stage of an actual fraudinvestigation.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Anatomy of a Fraud Investigation From Detection to Prosecution

"In the first book of its kind, Anatomy of a Fraud Investigation combines a detective story with a textbook. Mr. Pedneault leads the reader through the investigation of an embezzlement. Along the way, he shows us all the stages of a fraud case – from the initial detection through prosecution –and shares with us tips and techniques to successfully complete each stage. Providing instruction in the context of a case story results in an enjoyable and interesting experience for anyone interested in learning more about fraud investigation."
—John D. Gill, J.D., CFE, Vice President–Education Association of Certified Fraud Examiners

"In Anatomy of a Fraud Investigation, which reads like a thriller, Stephen Pedneault does a masterful job in exposing how thievery is discerned and stopped and thieves prosecuted."
—Julie Jason, author of The AARP Retirement Survival Guide: How to Make Smart Financial Decisions in Good Times and Bad

"Effectively designed for comprehending the phases of a fraud investigation. Progressively delineates the complexity of a fraud investigation through animating learning points within a continuous, unwinding narrative."
—David R. Lavoie, Ph.D., M.L.I.S., Director of Instructional Design & Assessment, School of Business, University of Connecticut
