Story of DB Cooper who hijacked a Northwest 727 in 1971, extorting $200K from the airline before parachuting into a stormy night over Washington State. Never seen or heard from again so the great mystery is - did he make it?

This is a straightforward account of the incident from the perspective of the investigating FBI agent for whom Cooper became something of an obsession (although he claims not!). Book written in the 80s and a little pedstrian at times. It would be interesting to read another account from someone further from the case for perspective but having this account is very interesting. Easy to read, moves fast and sticks to the story very well.

What do you think happened to Cooper? Book is, of course, inconclusive as no trace of him ever found (yet)
