Description of the book "The Devil Amongst the Lawyers (Ballad Series #8)":

"Ms. McCrumb writes with quiet fire and maybe a little mountain magic. . . . She plucks the mysteries from people's lives and works these dark narrative threads into Appalachian legends older than the hills. Like every true storyteller, she has the Sight."--The New York Times Book Review

In 1935, a beautiful young schoolteacher is accused of murdering her coal-miner father in a Virginia mountain community.

National journalists descend on Wise County, intent upon exonerating the defendant, and on stereotyping the mountain community to satisfy their Depression-era readers.
But local cub reporter Carl Jennings writes what he sees: an ordinary town and a PDF defendant who is probably guilty.

The novel resonates with the present: an economic depression- a deadly Japanese earthquake- the rise of political fanatics- and a media culture turning news stories into soap operas for the diversion of the masses.

The Devil Amongst the Lawyers is a literary tour de force, examining social issues that go well beyond the fate of one defendant. It is a testament to Sharyn McCrumb's lyrical and poetic writing about the mountain South.
