  How to be a Successful Frauditor

Drawing on the experiences of the author, including his role in a number of high profile cases at two organisations at the heart of government, the Treasury and the Metropolitan Police, the book is peppered with real life examples and case studies of the ‘frauditor’s’ experiences, and lessons learned the hard way including the cases of:

The linguist who was lost for words
Doctoring the suits at the hospital
A magician at work
Corporate credit cards for cops
