INTERVIEW: NovelsAlive.TV Novel to Film Spotlight: HIGH CRIMES by Joseph Finder

Joe Finder

Quietly funny and articulate, Joseph Finder would like you to think of him as an ordinary family man living in Boston, but this critically acclaimed, award winning New York Times Bestselling Author is anything but ordinary.  He is an extraordinary man who raises the bar on the edge-of-your-seat thriller to extraordinary heights.  From Kabul to New York as a child, and from Harvard to the CIA as an adult, this driven achiever published his first book at the age of twenty-four and has since penned over ten novels that will grip you by the heart and by the guts and take you on a ride you’ll never forget.

In HIGH CRIMES, a 2002 Fox Film with mega stars Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, Joseph’s mastery of suspense and storytelling hit target with a riveting tale of an ordinary women who rises to an extraordinary pinnacle.

High Crimes

Published: March 1, 2011

“Claire Heller Chapman has the perfect life. She’s a Harvard law professor and a high-profile criminal defense attorney known for taking on—and winning—tough cases. But one day this perfect life is shattered when her husband Tom Chapman is suddenly arrested by a team of government agents and accused of a brutal crime he insists he didn’t commit. As Claire finds herself drawn closer into a web of duplicity and shadowy figures, she discovers that her husband is not who he says he is…that he once had a different name…even a different face.

Now Claire must put her reputation on the line to defend Tom in a top-secret court-martial. As she searches for the truth, she begins to unravel an insidious, high-level government conspiracy that threatens not only her career but also her life, and the lives of her loved ones. All the while, she struggles to maintain her belief in her husband’s innocence—even when all the evidence seems to indicate that he is a cold-blooded murderer.

Written By

Jennifer St. Giles
USA Today Bestselling Author, Jennifer St. Giles/J.L. Saint/Jennifer Saints This bewitching Georgia Peach is anything but ordinary. She's a mother, nurse, thriller writer, award-winning paranormal/romance/contemporary author, passionate patriot, event planner and more! She's also home schooled three children and is the Vice-President of a charitable foundation which helps women and children's causes and in her spare time she writes screenplays! J.L. in her own words: Under a barrage of nagging by BFF's, I've been told my bio was boring, not at all a reflection of just who I am beneath the surface, which is a compliment…I think. So, I promised to rev it up a bit. Thus the reason why I'm sitting here staring at the computer screen with nothing but crickets in my brain. I'm totally into making up wild and interesting stories with a lot of heart thrown into the mix, but telling people about myself isn't so easy. What can I tell you about me? I don't play video games or watch horror because I can't take the heat, but give me a kickass thriller every minute of every day and I am there. Be prepared for a Hoover Dam meltdown if you're with me and the movie is sad. So, to avoid disaster, I love romantic comedies. Read more about Jenni on her website:
