A supplementary text for accounting courses in a suspense-thriller format.
Teaches the basic concepts of accounting including internal record keepting and profit motive. Accounting facts are taught while an intricate plot is woven. International intrigue, sleazy financial consultants, jade merchants, hit men and con artists abound.
The book's hero is Lenny Cramer, a mild-mannered professor at Wharton's School of Finance and also a forensic accountant who testifies before congress and appears as an expert witness in a court battle.
While Lenny and his daughter are on a tour of Burma he becomes enchanted by another tour member, Dana Scott, a beautiful jewler who is also from Philadelphia. After returning to the United States, Lenny comes to Dana's aid by going over her company's books because she believes her partner is stealing from the business. Little does he know that thefts, murders and a host of underground dealings will follow.
As the subplots unfold, so do the accounting principles.
