Peter Tickner spent thirty-eight years as a public service auditor and investigator in the UK before starting a new career as a writer, presenter and consultant on fraud, governance and audit. In the last twenty years of his public service career Peter held high profile jobs as the Head of Internal Audit at Her Majesty's Treasury and then Director of Internal Audit for the Metropolitan Police Service. Peter's interest in finding fraudsters started with his first public service appointment in NHS external audit and culminated in major cases at both the Treasury and the Metropolitan Police. Peter has been a lively speaker on fraud and audit related topics at international conferences for a number of years. After contibuting to books by others on more general internal audit matters Peter finally took the plunge in 2009 and started writing in his own inimitable and entertaining style about about his extensive knowledge and experience of finding and investigating fraud.
