    Don't bother. This book jumps around from one improbable suspect to another (a transsexual? Really? Look at the before picture again.) and one decade to another entirely too often. I realize the story is muddled, but that's no excuse for the author to be too. If they weren't so tragic, his fears that he might win a Pulitzer would be funny. No one will ever win anything from this book, except possibly some sort of prize for slogging all the way through it. What makes it all the sadder, of course, is that it didn't have to be this way. Additional Cooper evidence came to light just before this book was published. The right thing to have done would have been to stop production of this book, add the new evidence, remove the irrelevant portions of this book and publish a better book!

    On the plus side (yes, there is one), this book provides more than one sketch of Cooper based on the witnesses, additional information about the kid who found some of the money and more detail about the parachutes. Read it, but do not be fooled by it!

    OK - started great, but I got bored.

    It was written to keep you interested, so every chapter tells a different angle of a story. Sounds great. But I got lost, then I got bored. Not good.

    Entertaining for Cooper buffs

    If you read this book expecting it to break the DB Cooper case, you're crazy. Skyjack does a great job letting you live through the many people who have hunted for Cooper, either historically, or through the eyes of the author as he himself hunted for Cooper clues.

    Not So Good

    This book is too disjointed for me to recommend it. Jumping between characters and generations made this harder to follow than I would have liked. Also, the author goes out of his way to portray a few people in a fairly negative light. I hardly think that was necessary. Most of all, the ending is too abrupt, and as I turned the page, I seriously thought I had something missing from my book. Nope. It's as if time was up, gotta turn it in, ready or not.

    This is Mr. Gray's first book but that still does not excuse the lackluster finished product.

    So So

    Too much jumping around. Decade to decade. Too many different people to have to keep track of. After all is said and done-nothing new to report.
