About the Book
A Price to Pay tells the true story of how three British bankers came to be transported to Texas to face charges of defrauding their own bank in London, a bank that had never accused them of wrongdoing. Seen through the eyes of one of the ‘NatWest Three’ who became a cause celebre whilst fighting extradition, it is an astonishing story, and a harrowing cautionary tale on the nightmares of the US criminal justice system. It is a scathing indictment of the UK’s rotten extradition laws, shovelled through Parliament in 2003 on the back of the ‘War against Terror’, and the cause of untold misery to countless British citizens and their families ever since. It is a clarion call for law change, and a rebalancing of our unequal relationship with our closest ally, the United States of America. It should be required reading for all politicians, businessmen, and anyone with an interest in civil liberties.
All of the author’s profits from the book will be donated to Liberty and Fair Trials International, in recognition of their continuing fight for change to the UK’s extradition laws.
