The life of a fraud investigator, warts and all

What did you like best about Faces of Fraud? What did you like least?

The different stories and examples of what frauds took place and how they were found was good - the authors extensive experience comes through. A pity the writer over did how "evil" everyone who has done a fraud is, laid it on a bit thick when it wasn't necessary for the story line. I think the book could have been better structured, it did seem to jump around a lot without a clear reason.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Well to be honest if it wasn't related to my work this would be considered pretty boring and dull. I can't imagine many people would be interested in the depth of the sharing unless it is work related.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator sounds like the person who is the author, a pretty over serious individual I would not want to get stuck with at a party - but then not sure it is someone who would like parties.... But the style fit the work so I am not complaining.


Was Faces of Fraud worth the listening time?

It was worth listening for me but I don't think it would be for anyone without a serious interest in the subject. It is not a light hearted read...
