This definitive new work provides a comprehensive analysis of the investigation and prosecution of fraud offences in England and Wales. The discussion involves a critical analysis of the law, by reference to the policies, principles and practicalities of the criminal investigation and trial.The book covers the investigative, pre-trial, procedural and substantive law issues relating to fraud offences, as well as coverage of related topics such as corruption and money-laundering. Thirty specially commissioned chapters from acknowledged experts in the field are combined with all relevantmaterials to provide authoritative legal text and practical guidance in one volume. The practical and academic expertise of the Editors offers a unique combination not found in the existing works on fraud and related offences. As fraud law and procedure changes so rapidly, this work is published inloose-leaf format with regular updates (one in the first year, two thereafter) to provide the most comprehensive, analytical, and up-to-date fraud service available.
