If you work in a local government, are in leadership there, or provide audits in that sector, you really ought to check out Charles Hall’s book, The Little Book of Local Government Fraud Prevention.
I bought & read a copy a while back and really, really want to write a review of the book, but haven’t been able to pull together my thoughts. (Sorry Charles!) It is a good read.

Until I pull together my thoughts, just know that I believe you would benefit from reading the book.
Just one quick comment – many books on accounting or fraud you see run hundreds of pages. Not many people have time to read that much. An advantage of this book is short length. It is 112 pages long. That is a feature, by the way.
It is available in paperback at the link above.
As I write this post, the Kindle version is ranked as 128,267th best-selling. The paperback version is ranked at 241,851. He won’t retire from those sales, but those are very good rankings.
Full disclosure: I haven’t met Charles Hall in person, but we are internet friends. Also, I bought my copy of his e-book.
