About the Book

A small city begins to receive enormous amounts of state and federal money. The money appears to come with no strings attached and little accountability. Greed overcomes the good judgment of the city clerk, and a plan is hatched to steal millions of dollars. Soon the unstoppable habit becomes too big, the scheme collapses, and the clerk is caught. While an unfortunate occurrence, it isn’t the first time a per-son in a position of trust steals money. However, what is unusual is right before sentence is publicly announced, the clerk is found dead. The original fraud team is reengaged to review their origi-nal work to see if they have missed any subtle clues that could suggest why someone would want the clerk dead. They team up with other law enforcement personnel to unravel the mystery, which may be connected to international money laundering and political corruption, while trying to stay ahead of an investigative reporter with high-level sources.

About the Author

Scott Ray is a retired certified fraud examiner. He was born and raised in upstate New York. Mr. Ray has always enjoyed the mystery thriller genre of writing. He has combined this interest with the knowledge gleaned as a fraud examiner to produce Clayton, a story about the death of a city clerk about to be sen-tenced for the crime of fraud. The story soon becomes interwo-ven with implications of international money laundering and polit-ical corruption. This is his first book.
