Finders Keepers Summary

Finders Keepers: The Story Of Joey by Mark Bowden

'This is the true story of disorganised crime at its most comic - and tragic' Independent on Sunday

Times were hard for Joey Coyle. A dockworker from a struggling neighbourhood of south Philadelphia, Joey had a drug habit he could barely support. One February afternoon in 1981, he was on his way to score when he found two curious yellow containers lying in the street. They had just fallen off the back of an armoured van and contained $1.2 million, in cash, in unmarked notes from a casino.

Bursting with suspense, Finders Keepers tellsthe remarkable story of how Coyle secretly shared the money, living for seven days against the background of growing media interest, terrified he was going to be captured and killed.

Finders Keepers Reviews

"A master at pacing, putting the reader right alongside Joey, feeling the same speed-induced high as he makes dumb and dumber decisions.... Most of all, Mr. Bowden leaves the reader pondering the most obvious question on each page: What would you do?"
