“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 also 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, never to be seen again. The case of D.B. Cooper is a modern legend that has obsessed and cursed his pursuers for generations with everything from bankruptcy to suicidal despair. Now with Skyjack, author Geoffrey Gray obtians a first-ever look at the FBI's confidential Cooper file, uncovering new leads in the infamous case. Starting with a crack tip from a private investigator, Gray plunges into the murky depths of the decades-old mystery to chase down new clues and explore the secret lives of the cases's most promising suspects. With explosive new information, Skyjack reopens one of the great cold cases of the twentieth century.
