Prominent Pittsburgh Lawyer Publishes New Novel
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania September 22, 2011 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "Too High a Price," a new book by Joseph Katarincic, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
With increasing frequency, those charged with the responsibility for protecting public and private institutions have failed their obligations and are more concerned with exploiting than with serving. Rather than risk being ostracized, many find it easier and more beneficial to keep quiet and allow the cycle to continue. Thankfully, there are a few people out there willing to take the risk and make a stand. Based on real events, "Too High a Price" tells one such story.
Young Lawyer, Joe Carter, has it all. A beautiful wife and triplet sons, a dream home in a good neighborhood, and he's on the fast track to make partner at one of the best law firms in town. But when he is retained to defend a railroad in the trial of an injured worker seeking compensation for an extensive injury received on the job, he notices during the trial, that something isn't adding up and suspects the jury has been compromised.
As Carter follows the trail of suspected jury tampering, he quickly realizes that the levels of corruption and indifference go much deeper than he had thought, including not just the jury, but also the railroad unions, doctors, police, church leaders, members of the law firm and even the court itself. Blowing the whistle and exposing the truth is certainly the right thing to do. But Carter is facing immense pressure not to do so as it has become obvious. He is risking that doing so will burn bridges and will most likely mean losing everything he has worked so hard for. With the encouragement of his wife, Carter decides he can't turn a blind eye and pursues the truth-but will the truth come at too high a price?
"Too High a Price" is a dramatic legal thriller sure to keep readers at the edge of their seats.
