HOW COULD ONE WOMAN STEAL $53 MILLION WITHOUT ANYONE NOTICING? As city comptroller of Dixon, IL, Rita Crundwell stole $53 million of public funds across 20 years––making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history. She used the funds to build one of the nation's leading quarter horse breeding empires, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure.
ALL THE QUEEN'S HORSES investigates her crime, her lavish lifestyle and the small town she left in her wake.

My passions are fraud, film and life-long learning. I am an Associate Professor in the School of Accountancy and MIS at DePaul University in Chicago where I teach forensic accounting, managerial accounting, financial accounting and ethical leadership. When I am not in the classroom, I am engaged in fraud and white-collar crime research. I love film and always dreamed of having the ability to merge accounting with filmmaking and so I did.
