Details and specs

The Law of Fraud and the Forensic Investigator, Sixth Edition gives lawyers, accountants, internal auditors, and other investigators both an in-depth analysis of fraud, as well as the latest tools, techniques, and methods of handling internal or external fraud engagement. It provides guidance in terms of documenting fraud, preparing evidence, conducting a fraud investigation, and acting as an expert consultant or expert witness in any eventual litigation or proceedings. It represents the latest thinking on each area of the process, written by a commercial litigation lawyer, trained as both a management accountant and forensic investigator, who has been involved in several prominent cases as the head of the fraud recovery team.

New in this edition:

  • Updated chapters based on the most recent case law
  • Revisions dealing with changes to money laundering and anti-corruption legislation
  • New sections dealing with such emerging issues as identity theft, bitcoin frauds, frauds arising from the 2008 financial crisis, and the psychology of the fraudster

Most books have chapters that introduce a topic, leaving it to the reader to do further research. Each chapter in The Law of Fraud and Forensic Investigator, Sixth Edition can be read independently, with readers benefiting from an in-depth exploration of the subject matter. Students and practitioners alike will find this publication a useful desktop resource and reference.

This book is a useful resource for the forensic investigation of fraud. Particularly helpful are the checklists, forms and precedents (such as sample orders, injunctions, statements of claim, and a retainer letter).
From the book review of The Law of Fraud and the Forensic Investigator, Fourth Edition, by Susannah Tredwell (2016 Canadian Law Library Review/ Revue Canadienne des bibliothèques de droit, Volume/Tome 41, No. 2)

David Debenhams book is the most comprehensive book on fraud, the law, and investigation ever published. It is an essential reference guide for any forensic accountant, lawyer, or fraud investigator. Upon picking it up to research a topic, you will find yourself reading for hours, not able to put it down. It is well-written, easy to reference, and will aid you every step of the way in a white-collar crime case.
