Review by Gladys Hobson (author of The Dark Mirror and other literary works)
Not a novel but a rather novel detective story! An intriguing pageturner that can only be compared with those modern writers who delve into history seeking answers to unsolved crimes. Only with this one, most people who knew the dead suspect were still alive to be interviewed.
Writer, Robert Blevins turns detective, and works alongside Skipp Porteous, of Sherlock Investigations. The dynamic duo put forward what appears to be the final solution to one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of all time -- the D B Cooper highjacking of an airliner in 1971 for a $200,000 ransom. We are taken step by step into this intriguing crime. Intriguing, partly because no violence ensued and the man whom Blevins and Porteous puts the finger on, was a kindly person who apparently was a bit of a Samaritan.
This mystery of `who was the highjacker D B Cooper?' now appears to be solved, although the writers accept there can be no absolute certainty. Even so, following the investigations recorded in this book, Kenneth Christianson appears to be the most likely person.
It becomes clear to the reader that the FBI were totally negligent in their failure to investigate the airline staff, of whom Kenny Christianson was employed as a purser, otherwise they would have discovered that this man had received parachute training in the army. And later, that he had acquired money from other sources than his low income.
The one big negative in the writing of this book is the failure to wait for the results of a chemical test on the `hiding place' found in the loft of Christianson's original house before producing the book. The test had been organised during the making of a TV programme in 2010 concerning the highjacking event. Will the results be published in a future edition?
With or without the test result, a jolly good read, especially for those who enjoy thorough step by step investigations into unsolved mysteries.
The book is beautifully edited by the author Geoff Nelder.
