Told in riveting, novelistic detail by the author of the best-seller Black Hawk Down, Finders Keepers is the widely acclaimed true story of an incredible week in the life of Joey Coyle, a down-and-out longshoreman from working-class South Philadelphia. One afternoon, just blocks from his home, Coyle found two curious yellow containers containing $1.2 million in unmarked money from a casino. They had just fallen off the back of an armored truck. Even before news of the missing money exploded across the headlines, Detective Pat Laurenzi was working around the clock to track it down. Joey Coyle, meanwhile, was off on a bungling misadventure, sharing his windfall with everyone from his girlfriend to total strangers to the two neighborhood kids who were with him when he found it. Loaded with intrigue and suspense, Finders Keepers is the remarkable tale of an ordinary man faced with an extraordinary moral dilemma, and the fascinating reactions of the family, friends, and neighbors to whom he turns.

About the Author:

Mark Bowden is the author of Killing Pablo, Black Hawk Down, Bringing the Heat, Doctor Dealer, and Finders Keepers. He reported at The Philadelphia Inquirer for twenty years.

From AudioFile:

Unemployed longshoreman Joey Coyle thought the yellow tub lying in the road might work as a toolbox. Inside he found 1.2 million dollars--stacks of hundreds in cellophane. BLACK HAWK DOWN author Mark Bowden is justly revered for transforming interviews and research into a story that rolls out before you in the here and now. His own vivid, intelligent voice deepens the verisimilitude of this story. He knows the text. He knew Joey. The 1986 series in the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER SUNDAY MAGAZINE around which this book was built also sparked a movie titled MONEY FOR NOTHING, starring John Cusack. Seem like a happy ending to you?
