About the Author
The author of four novels and a dozen nonfiction books, Sullivan grew up in Salem, Oregon. He completed his B.A. degree in English at Cornell University under Alison Lurie and earned an M.A. in German at the University of Oregon. The New York Times has praised him as an endearing, engaging writer. His adventure memoir, Listening for Coyote, was chosen one of the 100 most significant books in Oregon history.
Top customer reviews
This engaging novel provides the reader with one possible (plausible?) story.
Sullivan - who, by the way, is the author of several great hiking guides for Oregon - knows a lot about the Pacific Northwest, in general, and Portland, Oregon in particular.
He weaves iconic (and some not so iconic) Pacific Northwest and Portland locations into this fictionalized account of the famous DB Cooper incident - from its inception to its immediate aftermath up to the present day.
If you're interested in DB Cooper and looking for a great read, then this is your book.
We have enjoyed nearly everything the Sullivans have written. Always fresh.
Definitely as fun a way to travel and deepen historical awareness as can be imagined. If not high literature, it succeeds at the task of solid and engaging mystery writing with an authentic foundation.
