Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Risk. It's a factor calculated into all big-time sports operations. But baseball was completely unprepared for the risk of major league murder in the stands. Fleet Walker, internal auditor for the New York Yankees, a forensic accountant, a FBI agent, and the protagonist of The Big R lead the reader through the fundamentals of forensic auditing, while using their accounting skills and knowledge of baseball history to track a serial killer who is threatening the national pastime.Using the form of a novel to stimulate interest, The Big R is designed to supplement a forensic auditing, internal auditing, fraud examination, or graduate financial statements course. Readers will enjoy the suspense of this psychological thriller that integrates the foundations of forensic accounting and brings these applications to life. Authors Crumbley, Ziegenfuss, and O'Shaughnessy mix engaging storytelling with factual and practical information to create a resource guide that is both entertaining and informative.
