Description

The "unexpectedly moving" story of dumb luck and the American Dream set in South Philly from the # 1 New York Times-bestselling author (Entertainment Weekly).

What would you do if you found a million dollars? When Joey Coyle did, he was a twenty-eight-year-old drug-dependent, unemployed longshoreman living with his ailing mother in a tight-knit Philadelphia neighborhood. While cruising the streets just blocks from his home, fate took a turn worthy of a Hollywood caper when he found $1.2 million in unmarked bills -- casino money that had fallen off an armored truck. It was virtually untraceable. Coyle? Not so much.

Over the next seven days, fueled by euphoria, methamphetamine, and paranoia, Coyle shared his windfall with everyone from his eight-year-old niece to total strangers to a local mob boss who offered to "clean" it. All the while, Det. Pat Laurenzi and members of the FBI were working around the clock to find it. No one was prepared for how Coyle's dream-come-true would come tumbling down, or what would happen when it did.

From "a master of narrative journalism" comes the incredible true-life thriller of an ordinary man with an extraordinary dilemma, and the complicity, concern, and betrayal of friends, family, and neighbors that would prove his undoing (The New York Times Book Review).

"A miniature serio-comedy about life in the city." -- The Washington Post

"Masterfully reported and artfully paced." -- Entertainment Weekly

"A taut, fast-paced tale." -- The Baltimore Sun
