A Price To Pay (The Inside Story of the NatWest Three) by David Bermingham is the astonishing tale of three British bankers caught up in the Enron scandal. It’s a devastating portrait of the American justice system and the British extradition and political system, and leaves one horrified and angry.
The financial details are complex, and frankly impossible for non-bankers to comprehend, but this doesn’t hinder the following of the story. The book is very well written and my sympathies were entirely with the three bankers. This is a highly recommended read.
Interestingly I discovered that another of the NatWest Three has also written a well reviewed book (Gang of One by Gary Mulgrew) which I will certainly seek out.
