Finders Keepers by Mark Bowden

Times are hard for Joey Coyle. A dockworker from a struggling neighbourhood of south Philadelphia, Joey lived with his ailing mother and 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.

Finders Keepers tells how Coyle secretly shared the money with everyone around him, including his girlfriend, random strangers and the area's most notorious mob boss. Against the background of growing media interest in the fate of the missing money, Coyle lived for seven days in a whirlwind, planning his future as a rich man, but terrified that he was about to be captured and killed.

Bursting with suspense, Finders Keeper is a vivid portrait of an everyday man faced with an extraordinary dilemma and a pulsating story of greed, generosity and betrayal.
