It is impossible to over-state the importance of suspicion in relation to financial crime. It is at the heart of protecting against fraud, bribery and other offences and, of course, it is an essential element of all financial crime risk and control systems for money laundering and terrorist financing systems.

First published in 2014 and now reviewed, updated and expanded "Understanding Suspicion" remains the only comprehensive study of how, why and when people become, or do not become, suspicious and why they do, or do not, report those suspicions.

Highly regarded in intelligence agencies and law enforcement, the book is essential reading across the entire financial sector and in commercial enterprises.

Now including topics such as how changing attitudes amongst customers, rapid changes in the use of language and the use of "artificial intelligence" in a risk-assessment environment are affecting the question of suspicion, the book adds to its previously wide range of topics, taking lawyers, judges and legislators into the world of financial crime risk officers, law enforcement and intelligence operations in an easy-to-read, informal style that belies the seriousness of the subject and its treatment.
