    "…breaks new ground in describing in some detail the techniques used by organized crime groups. This is an excellent reference source that will contribute also to honing investigative skills."
    -Crime & Justice International, July/August 1999


    "This is an excellent book and a recommend read for the novice, the expert and the voyeur…I'll tell you this, if James R. Richards, authors a second volume on financial crimes, I would like to be the first to purchase it."
    -Business and Security Journal, March 1999
