A Price to Pay tells the true story of how three British bankers were extradited to the US on charges of defrauding their bank in London, a bank that had never accused them of wrongdoing. It is a harrowing and cautionary tale on the nightmares of the US criminal justice system and a scathing indictment of the UK’s rotten extradition laws. It is a clarion call for law change, and a rebalancing of our unequal relationship with our closest ally, the United States of America.
