Product Description

Review

" A wealth of arson investigative knowledge went into this book. It is exactly what is needed and long overdue." -- Charles G. McGrath, Chief, Arson Bureau, Ohio Division, State Fire Marshal

"Combating Arson-for-Profit is an excellent practical guide and resource for all parties (public and private) involved in the investigations of profit-motivated arson. The book also serves as a terrific educational and training text for individuals preparing to enter this important field." -- Angelo L. Pisani, Jr., Ph.D., President, Pisani & Associates LTD; Associate Professor, St. John's University, NY; Former NYC Arson Strike Forced Coordinator

"Combating Arson-for-Profit is an outstanding work that belongs not in investigators' libraries, but in the field where it can be used time and time again. ... it lays out the intricacies of complex investigations in a very manageable form." -- Peter S. Beering, Certified Fire Investigator, General Counsel, Dept. of Public Safety, City of Indianapolis

Combating Arson for Profit is a most welcome guide to the investigation of fraud. As an insurance company S.I.U. investigator, I recommend this to all those involved in these complex cases. The reader will discover how to conduct the "paper chase", document evidence, write professional reports, and assure the most comprehensive case for court. Highly recommended!
