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?
