In 1934 all the national publications sent their star reporters to remote Virginia to cover the trial of Erma Morton: a beautiful 21-year-old mountain girl with a teaching degree, accused of murdering her father - a drunken tyrant of a man.

Four seasoned journalists descend upon the small town - nothing sells papers better than a wronged woman on trial, or descriptions of backwards mountain life. Yet instead of rundown shacks and horse-drawn buggies, they found gas stations and coal company executives...but the truth can always be manipulated to suit the audience.

Except that among them is Carl Jennings, an 18-year-old novice journalist from Tennessee who accurately reports on the trial and the citizens of the town. So when their articles conflict, Carl is condemned for perjury, while the other journalists sell Erma Morton's verdict to the highest bidder. Soon, it is not the actual murder that is of interest, but the vultures attracted to the death. In the midst of all this, Carl continues to search for the truth, relying on his younger cousin, Nora - gifted with the sight - for help.

A stunning return to the lands, ballads, and characters upon which she made her name, The Devil Amongst the Lawyers is a testament to Sharyn McCrumb's lyrical and poetic writing.

    " Somewhat of a departure from other books in this series and not as compelling to me. The Japan plot line seemed shoehorned in to the main story. "

    " I really like her books about the Appalachians. Especially those with Nora in them. I liked this books but I wished she would have written more about the trial and more with Nora. Still it was a good read. "

    " Erma Morton, a twenty-something teacher, has been charged with the murder of her father. Newspaper reporters from the big cities descend on the little Virginia mountain community, each looking for an angle to make his (or her) story the best, and each with a preconceived idea of what this mountain town and its inhabitants should be. Nora Bonesteel makes a brief appearance. "

    " Not my favorite book by McCrumb, it was very disjointed and none of the characters really seemed fleshed out as much as they could have been. Was an interesting glimpse at a young Nora Bonesteel. "
