In 1971, a man calling himself D.B. Cooper hijacked a flight, claimed his ransom without harming a soul and vanished. He parachuted out of the plane over the dense woods of the Pacific Northwest with $200,000 strapped to his body. Elwood Reid uses this true story as a starting point, imagining Cooper as Phil Fitch, a Vietnam vet with a failed marriage who decides the time has come to do something that will save him from a life of punching time cards and wondering what could have been. Fitch ends up in Mexico, where he drifts until a turn of bad luck forces him to return home. Meanwhile, retired FBI agent Frank Marshall, struggling with his new life of leisure - fishing, drinking too much, tempted to embark on an affair with a female witness - decides to help a young agent determined to solve the case of D.B. Cooper. This is an odyssey, a manhunt, a gripping and frequently hilarious tale.

Review:

"Raunchy, seamy, cocksure, perversely juicy, so surprising in its vivid convolutions of plot and character that you keep turning back a few pages to see how the author is getting away with it." Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall "Wild and alive, an epic manhunt and brutal social portrait, D.B. is the road trip of your dreams - Hunter Thompson does the driving, but John Steinbeck holds the map." Mark Costello, author of Big If "Masterfully told, D.B. ranks among the best and most entertaining books of the year." Pittsburgh Tribune "From a lineage of Tom McGuane, Charles Portis, and Raymond Chandler, Elwood Reid ascends to the top of his generation with this novel. "Mark Richard, author of Fishboy "Smart and direct prose ... By shifting the reader's attention from the overtly dramatic to the psychological, Reid has written something much more engaging than the mere suspense novel D.B. might have been." The New York Times Book Review
