Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Portland police detective Neil Ferguson uncovers a series of puzzling and threatening clues that lead to the identity of D.B. Cooper, the mysterious man who hijacked a plane and parachuted with $200,000 in 1971. But when Ferguson delves deeper into a web of blackmail and murder, he realizes there may in fact be two D.B. Coopers.

Review:

"Bravo! Great characterization, complexity, and detail." L.J. Sellers, author of the Detective Jackson mystery series

Review:

"Sullivan draws on a deep knowledge of the Pacific Northwest to create an imaginative, fast-paced tale. The intricate plot stretches from Portland to the bleak Russian city of Murmansk. A fun, home-grown mind teaser of a mystery." Alice Tallmadge, UO School of Journalism & Communications

Review:

"The Case of D.B. Cooper's Parachute suggests that Eugene hiking guru Bill Sullivan is not just listening to birdsong while on the trail. His wheels are spinning, and the results are imaginative and entertaining in this internationally flavored Northwest mystery thriller." Brain Juenemann, Eugene Register-Guard

Review:

"An exciting novel that draws the reader with exquisite storytelling and character shaping. Fast paced, filled with action, and compelling from start to finish." Grant McHill, KUGN morning show host

If you love Portland and North West history 'D.B. Cooper's Parachute' has it all. I predict this will be a movie soon.
Keep up the good writing Bill Sullivan.
