Called a "cross between Mickey Spillane and Mr. Chips" by the Washington Post, Larry Crumbley (aka Iris Weil Collett) is the author of 12 other widely adopted novels. Business Week called him a mover and shaker and said he "aims to lend excitement to the study of debits and credits by couching the stuff in romantic prose."
And this time he is teamed up with Veronica Paz, Jeanne David, Lawrence Murphy Smith, and Stephanie Walton for a sizzling new accounting thriller, Computer Encryptions in Whispering Caves. In this whodunit, their new character takes on the furtive air of a female Mickey Spillane as she tracks down the calculating culprits.
For his use of forensic accountants as his major characters, a New Accountant article called Crumbley the Mark Twain of the accounting profession. His goal is to spice up ho-hum subjects and to make students think that the accounting profession is much better than the stereotype image they have. According to the Wall Street Journal, his novels prove that the phrase "suspenseful accounting" is not necessarily an oxymoron.
