It’s the winter of 1971 and FBI Agent Zack Pomeroy is hoping to make a name for himself when he’s assigned the case of the century—the hijacking of an airplane by D.B. Cooper. Zack’s used to hiding his sexuality but working with Duke Magruder is even more of a challenge. Not only do they do have vastly different personalities but also contrasting opinions on how to work the case. Nonetheless, Zack is able to earn Duke’s begrudging respect.
Until Duke learns Zack’s secret.
When Zack finds a lead on the case Duke not only refuses to listen, he also refuses to work with Zack any longer. Zack’s career and his assignment are at jeopardy but that doesn’t mean he’s about to give up on finding Cooper, no matter how many years it takes.
This was an interesting book for me! I’m actually a fan of the D.B. Cooper story itself – so to read Stone’s version of it was real fun.
And it really freaked me out too! The story was very well written, and it really felt like I was back in the 1970s. I haven’t read a book of Stone’s before, but I will be sure to read more in the future.
I do want to touch on something though — this book does take place in the 1970s where homosexuality was still … taboo. And there were some scenes in this book that read kinda – okay really – hard. But taking into consideration the time frame that the book was in, it did make sense.
Overall -0 this was a really good story and I will be sure to read more books from Stone in the future.
