Deadly Accounting

Nothing makes your nice, quiet accounting job seem like a good idea faster than reading about someone with a deadly accounting job.

Portfolio.com writer Adam Piore’s profile of PricewaterhouseCoopers forensic accountant Al Vondra starts with what may be the greatest opening sentence ever used in an accounting story: “People don’t normally try to kill you for doing their taxes, but forensic accounting is a whole different ball game.”

If consulting for the U.S. Justice Department in Cleveland really is as exciting as Portfolio.com makes it sound, it’s probably time for someone to follow John Grisham’s lead and write a best-selling accounting thriller.
