In 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper hijacked a jetliner, demanded $200,000 in cash and four parachutes, and bailed out somewhere over Oregon, never to be seen again. He became a folk hero to hippies, survivalists, libertarians, and anarchists, who admired the man who had, apparently, beat the system. However, his jump, in brutally cold weather and in the midst of a major storm, left one question unanswered: where was he?George C. Nuttall, with his best friend, also a trained policeman and investigator, began to poke around in the mystery of Cooper's disappearance. The resulting book, D.B. Cooper Case Exposed: J. Edgar Hoover Cover-Up? is a record of his investigations, which turn up some results implicating far more powerful people than D.B. Cooper, whoever he was.

Praise For D.B. Cooper Case Exposed: J. Edgar Hoover Cover Up?

“Nuttall’s investigation turns up some interesting findings: the absence of radar tracking the highjacked jet, conflicting reports from witnesses aboard the plane, a lackluster search for Cooper in the wrong location, and the tardy release of serial numbers on Cooper’s ransom money.” Publishers Weekly Select March 28, 2011
