    Detailed, Insightful and DArk

    This isn't sensational 'true crime' genre stuff. 'Mainliner Denver' stays close to the bone, to the definite, no-questions-asked facts of one of the most stunning acts of violence in Colorado's history and in aviation history. Andrew Field steers clear of speculation and guesswork. The details are well assembled, and the flow is linear. The reader is left to absorb the story just as it unfolded in 1955. I worked with both Al Nakkula and Gene Amole at The Rocky Mountain News so it was fascinating to think back about their roles in this over-the-top story. And Field lays out the issues sparked by this legendary crime with a reporter's deft eye -- cameras in the court, vending machine air travel insurance, luggage screening, and execution mishaps, among others. While Graham wasn't the best planner in the world and made it fairly easy for detectives to piece things together, Field does a terrific job of detailing their investigation and the hurdles they encountered along the way. If you want to read something that draws out complicated theories for Graham's psychological make-up, go elsewhere. 'Mainliner Denver' sticks to what we know for sure and, in that way, leaves an even more powerful chill.

    This story is truely in the details

    You won¿t find many books as thoroughly researched as this one. Mr. Field has gone to great lengths to give you the personal and psychological insight into the main figure in this horrific tragedy and he explores the perspectives of many others connected with this incident extremely well. I found this is what made this book such a riveting read.

    Relative of a victim

    This is a great book with lots of detail about the victims, the bombing,who did it and how he did it. When I started reading it I could not put it down. It keeps you interested in what happened next. I really appreciate that the author verified information about the victims because he wanted the details to be correct.

    High Drama

    A deftly written page turner that describes the horrific events surrounding the first act of sabatoge against a U.S. commercial airliner and the dramatic trial that followed. Set in a more romantic period of air travel, this story still resonates strongly today. Thoroughly researched, superbly written, full of interesting photographs, and just plain fascinating. A must read!!

    Mainliner Denver is a must-read true crime story!

    I just finished reading Mainliner Denver. It is a fantastic book. It is an incredible, true story told in dramatic fashion. As a New York prosecutor, I really enjoyed the account of the investigation and the trial. This should be required reading for anyone with an interest in criminal justice. In addition, in light of recent events, this story was particularly gripping. The author brings you inside the life and mind of the murderer - a scary, but fascinating read. One of the best books I have read in a long time.
