Denver-based private investigator Anthony Accetta – founder and principal in the private investigations firm The Accetta Group – is just out with a book in which he says the key to the collapse of the US economy in 2007-2008 was massive mortgage fraud – and the guilty have gotten away with it.
“You, The Jury: How Wall Street Cashed in on the American Dream, and Nearly Killed It” is an insider’s account based in part on Accetta’s work as a federal prosecutor.
Today Accetta is a rare example of a lawyer-prosecutor turned private investigator. He answered some questions about his career arc and his book for the Denver Private Investigator Blog.
