"A Comparative Analysis of Corporate Fraud: Book Four" examines corporate fraud in the United Kingdom compared with that of two civil law neighbouring countries, France and Germany, as well as the United States. The objective of the study is to discover how fraud occurs, how the two different legal systems treat fraud, contributing factors, and if recommendations were made to authorities in an attempt to combat this illegal activity.

The UK can learn much from the French legal system and the way France prosecutes corporations. Germany's Criminal Code is equally comprehensive in its prescriptive definitions of fraud, especially corporate fraud. Although the UK is striving for a general law against fraud, the UK Fraud Offence Bill is very inadequate, lacking detailed solutions. The UK has become entrenched in upholding legal privilege, bowing to intense lobbying by the legal profession. And the use of electronic evidence, vital in prosecuting modern corporate fraud, remains overlooked.

The attitude toward corporate fraud in the UK remains laissez-faire. By analysing corporate fraud in the US, France, and Germany, author Sally Ramage highlights examples that the UK can take from these countries that combat corporate fraud without derogation of established international human rights.
