Publisher Description

"Spectacular…The action is unrelenting…Electrifying."—Boston Sunday Herald

The news is shattering: The director of the CIA, Harrison Sinclair, has been killed in a car accident. Sinclair may have been a traitor—or the Agency's last honest man. Even his son-in-law, Ben Ellison, an attorney and ex-agent, has heard rumors of sinister forces within the Agency that could have ordered Sinclair's assassination. Soon he is thrust into a web of intrigue and violence beyond his control back into the CIA, and lured into a top-secret espionage project in telepathic ability funded by American intelligence.

"Gripping drama in which nothing is quite what it seems."—Seattle Times

As the project's first success, Ben uses his "extraordinary powers" in the perilous search for Vladimir Orlov, the exiled former chairman of the KGB—and the only man who might unlock the secret of Sinclair's death and the whereabouts of a multibillion-dollar fortune in gold spirited out of Russia in the last days of the Soviet Union. The hunt for the truth will bring Ben face to face with his past and culminate in a crowded Washington hearing room where, behind high security barriers, a Senate investigating committee is about to call its secret witness…as an assassin prepares to strike…in Joseph Finder's Extraordinary Powers.

"An extraordinary, powerful book…ingeniously plotted, fast-paced, and frighteningly credible."—Nelson DeMille

Extraordinary Powers

Well done! A good read.

How about reading the book details?

Gotta love when someone blames Apple because they apparently don't read the details for what the book is about. Had they done this, they would have seen what the book was about and known it was something they read in the 90's. Instead, they just click "Buy Book" and blame Apple. When all they had to do was click "Details". Typical of the day and age we live in. I won't do any of the work, even the most simple of tasks, let everyone else do it for me and then I'll complain after the fact because I was too lazy to check the facts!

Rip off!!!!

This book was originally published in 1994! I read it then, but because it was re-released in paperback, they promote it as a new book. Since I've read all of Finder's books, I've read this already and I'm out the cost of another copy. Another way for Apple to screw its customers.
