Skyjack: The Hunt for D.B. Cooper

Geoffrey Gray, read by the author. Random House Audio, , unabridged, eight CDs, 8 hrs., $35 ISBN 978-0-307-73579-9
Who was the reclusive masked hijacker who in 1971 took over an airplane flying from Portland, Ore., to Seattle, made off with $200,000, and parachuted into mysterious oblivion? A contributing editor to New York magazine, Geoffrey Gray narrates this audio version of his attempt to solve the mystery of the famous D.B. Cooper case. His reading is calm and well paced. He has a sense of the dramatic, dropping into a whisper at moments of particular importance. He also ably renders the book’s characters and uses his innate knowledge of the text to emphasize key points and passages. Gray is unlikely to quit his day job—although he’d probably make a pretty decent audio narrator—but for his own book, he’s the ideal reader. A Crown hardcover. (Aug.)
