Pressestimmen

"Laurence Leamer does a superb job of condensing this fifteen-year legal brawl into a highly readable and entertaining narrative. Greed, arrogance, injustice, corruption - it has it all, and, sadly, it's all true. Fortunately, it also has some heroes. This is a book I wish I had written."--John Grisham

"Includes fascinating real-life characters...Bestselling author Leamer offers a compelling nonfiction thriller...Leamer is masterful at presenting the important issues, strong personalities, political and legal machinations and economic stakes of the challenge to Massey, looking beyond the law to reveal a case about social inequities, greed, and arrogance."-"Booklist "(starred review)

"Riveting and compulsively readable...Leamer has produced a Shakespearean tale of greed, corporate irresponsibility, and personal hubris on one hand, and idealism, commitment to justice, and personal sacrifice on the other. Blankenship is a villain for all time, and Stanley and Fawcett are lawyers who bring honor to their profession."---"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"Some readers will understandably confuse the contemporary history chronicled in Laurence Leamer's "The Price of Justice" for compelling fiction... an expansive, clearly crafted account ... Inspiring...Straightforward and elegant.""--The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "

"Kafkaesque considerations lie at the heart of "The Price of Justice" . . . If the whole thing reads like a Grisham novel, don't be surprised; Grisham based "The Appeal"""on many facts of the case. But it is a testament to Leamer's ability to capturing both the characters and the local West-Virginian ethos (he himself had worked in the mines while penning a piece in the early 70's) that the story functions just as well, if not more so, as nonfiction."-- "The Daily Beast "

""The Price of Justice" is the nail-biting, harrowing story of two courageous trial lawyers facing down corporate greed, Wall Street law firms, powerful politiciansa

HASH(0xa28c72b8) von 5 Sternen Leamer strikes again--with his best work to date 8. Mai 2013
Von Dan E. Moldea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Be careful when you buy The Price of Justice. You won't be able to put it down. It's that much of a page turner. It's the most extraordinary, compelling tale of corporate evil I have ever read. Don Blankenship, the CEO of Massey Energy, is one bad dude and Bruce Stanley and Dave Fawcett, the two lawyers who fight him for almost a decade and a half, are regular guys who never give up. This is a book every lawyer in America should read to see their profession at its best. It's a book every law student should read as a model of what lawyers can be. But it's a book for the rest of us too. It's gritty and dark but it's inspiring too. Stanley and Fawcett never give up and I will never forget The Price of Justice.

Also, John Grisham said of Larry Leamer's work: "This is a book I wish I had written." . . . That speaks volumes.

HASH(0xa29228d0) von 5 Sternen Worth the Read! 9. Mai 2013
Von Antonio Mantilla - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My husband and I read it over our recent vacation and couldn't put it down. It reads like fiction, but it is an impressive piece of journalism- both disturbing and inspiring in its portrayal of the corruption and corporate influence that still permeate America and these two lawyers' quest to bring down Massey energy's real life CEO villain. Interesting on SO many levels and appealing to a wide range of readers. It really is an essential read for all Americans, in that it brings to light so many abuses (legal, environmental, work place safety) but leaves you with the hope that there is indeed the possibility of justice.

HASH(0xa28f9228) von 5 Sternen Must Read Roller Coaster Ride 12. Mai 2013
Von Wayne Rosso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a must read for any John Grisham fan--but it's non-fiction. In fact, the story that Laurence Leamer tells was used by Grisham as the inspiration for his book "The Appeal". If you like legal thrillers, this is the real deal. Leamer grabs you by the throat from the prologue and never lets go. He takes a very complicated lawsuit and makes it simple and easy to understand with his straightforward reporting and no-nonsense style. Leamer has the ideal corporate villain in Massey Energy CEO Don Blankenship, a truly vile figure who is aided and abetted by ethics challenged jurists and politicians. In the end, this story will make your blood boil.

HASH(0xa292a2f4) von 5 Sternen excellent from a legal and personal standpoint 24. Mai 2013
Von David S. Saliba - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a resident of southwest Virginia, having practiced law in several of the Virginia courts mentioned in the text, I was very impressed with this book. It is a very timely issue. Civil justice is radically different today than it was even a few decades ago. Like it or not, money talks today in a way it would never have in years past. The politicization of the legal system is a critical issue that every citizen must examine and understand, as courts are our last stop to address wrongs done to us, whether we are poor people or well-funded litigants. We should all have access to a level playing field. Leamer's writing style is very good. There is enough technical analysis to keep even a lawyer's interest, while not overwhelming a lay person. You can follow the author on Twitter, @Leamer, and there is a Facebook page for the book as well.

HASH(0xa292aa68) von 5 Sternen Excellent work 20. Mai 2013
Von Robert D. Goldberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As a resident of Charleston West Virginia I am well aware of the stanglehold Don Blankenship has on this State. Mr. Leamer, an outsider, has done what no West Virginian has ever, or will ever do: he stood up to Mr. Blankenship. Certainly not our cowed media. For that he receives my eternal gratitude. But the real heroes of this book are Mr. Fawcett and Mr. Stanley. In addition to every other aspect of West Virginia life, Mr. Blankenship has intimidated the West Virginia legal community to the point where very few attorneys will take him on. But these two had no fear. They are truly warriors. Like the attorney in A Civil Action, they are driven by a intense desire for justice. My hat is off to them both, and I wish them nothing but good fortune.
