"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

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 2/2/2013

    " Imaginative idea ruined by a dull and needlessly detailed exploration of everything a character might do in the circumstances. It became intolerably unexciting for a thriller and wore out its welcome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 1/1/2013

    " Another fast moving well plotted story. Heroes get slightly unbelievable at points but then they wouldn't be heroes if they didn't. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric Mann | 7/21/2012

    " I am glad I read other Finder books before going back to this early work. A book that reads long and often gets off-plot. He is a really good other this is not his best work "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lholfeltz | 5/30/2012

    " As suspenseful and on the edge of your seat as a Ludlum novel. Very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/31/2012

    " Excellent; rogue members of CIA and Germans intent on taking over Europe attempt to enlist a former CIA man who is a test subject in an experiment to allow him to hear people's thoughts. Various twists and turns. "

    " Very suspenseful and a good plot....just not my kinda book. Too much Russian espionage. If that's your thing, you'll love it. "

    " Lawyer and ex CIA operative Ben Ellison is lured back in to ferret
    out a self serving, traitorous faction within The Company. Complex
    story. The author has an awkward, choppy style.
