The Search for D.B. Cooper
"I have a bomb here and I would like you to sit by me.” That was the note handed to a stewardess by a mild-mannered passenger on a Northwest Orient flight in 1971. It was the start of one of the most astonishing whodunits in the history of American true crime: how one man extorted $200,000 from an airline, then parachuted into the wilds of the Pacific Northwest and into oblivion. D. B. Cooper’s case has become the stuff of legend and obsessed and cursed his pursuers with everything from bankruptcy to suicidal despair.
With explosive new information and exclusive access to FBI files and forensic evidence, Skyjack by Geoffrey Gray reopens one of the great cold cases of the 20th century.
Geoffrey has as a book signing and talk event tonight at 7:30 at Powell's Books located at 1005 W Burnside in Portland.
