Fraud: A Practitioner's Handbook is a practical and essential guide to fraud and the relevant investigatory bodies. This new title in the Criminal Practice Series enhances the reader's practical understanding of fraud; how it is committed, detected, prosecuted and defended.

Fraud: A Practitioner's Handbook clearly identifies the prevalent ways in which particular types of fraud are committed and the defences thereto. Where appropriate, tables will be used to provide instantly accessible checklists of what must be proved, the means by which it is often proved, and frequently encountered issues and defences.

No other book provides practical assistance by way of indicators of prevalent fraud offences nor the way in which defendants often respond to such indicators.
