In 2002, three English bankers became involved in the Enron fall-out when they heard on television that the US government would seek their extradition under laws designed for terrorists. The US government only needed to identify them but not provide evidence of the crime committed. In a very public battle supported by The Times, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail - with incidental support from Tony Blair, then Prime Minister - they fought their extradition. They lost in 2006 and were put on trial in a court in Texas for actions that are legal in the UK. In this book David Bermingham tells for the first time since their release in August 2010 the full story from the summons in 2002 to his return to Britain.
