For those interested in this kind of thing, I think David Einhorn's book is excellent.

It tells a story of when Einhorn realized a company was more-or-less fraudulent, and his fight against the SEC and the company to release the truth. He had the incentive for this fight because of his short position. Einhorn was ultimately proven correct, and the company collapsed. The book is equally interesting, informative and infuriating.
