Money LaunderingPaperback - 2004
Author Chris Mathers has had one of those lives most of us cannot fathom. He is a well-known international authority on money laundering whose work has seen him operating phony businesses and laundering money for drug lords and the Mob while working undercover with the RCMP, DEA, FBI and other foreign agencies worldwide. Mathers has seen it all and Crime School tells it all. Humourous at times, deadly serious at others, he describes how organized criminals operate domestically and internationally, how they are able to corrupt bankers and subvert economies, and how in fact money laundering is the nexus between organized crime and terrorism. Appealing to true crime fans and those in the business/finance sector, Crime School takes us through the history of money laundering, from ancient times through the South Florida cocaine craze of the 1970s, to todays beyond sophisticated techniques employed by terrorists and organized crime, techniques that have achieved such success that the face of our world has changed dramatically. Brisk, hard hitting, entertaining and sometimes shocking and frightening, Chris Mathers takes readers on a journey that is always fascinating, and it is an underworld few have ever experienced. Truly amazing.
