Joseph Finder makes his 'Power Play' on national bestseller lists
Joseph Finder appeared at the Jabberwocky Bookstore in Newburyport, Massachusetts, a couple of days before his new novel, Power Play (St. Martin's Press; August, 2007) landed on the New York Times top ten bestseller list. Instead of reading from his new work, he described his aborted C.I.A. career and told the story behind his first book, Red Carpet (Henry Holt; August, 1983) a work of non-fiction on the life of American entrepreneur Armand Hammer. Finder then chronicled how he came to write Paranoia and how the idea for Power Play evolved into a bestselling novel. Afterward, Finder obliged the audience with autographs of his hit thriller.
