The Bezzle by Cory Doctorow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Honestly, if this sparks a whole future explosion of a genre of FORENSIC ACCOUNTANTS, then I could not be happier.
I see this kind of thing much too rarely. It’s usually very niche and hardly ever in the realm of FICTION, but tracking down a good DD is especially delicious, especially when it touches to righteously on the very real graft, cons, and purely evil-spirited world of our own nasty high finance.
This is a case of reality — as explained through fiction — and done so well, so deftly, so smartly, that it should be required reading for ANYONE interested in the world of big money cons.
Cory Doctorow is spitting some awesome words here. This isn’t the first novel I’ve read that follows Martin Hench, forensic accountant, but it is the earliest one in the narrative timeline.
Let’s just put it this way: I am FASCINATED. Endlessly so. I could read this forever. Please, please, let me have more!
