Throwback Thursday Review ~ Hijacked Love by Ethan Stone ~ (Review + Giveaway)


It’s the winter of 1971 and FBI Agent Zack Pomeroy is hoping to make a name for himself when he’s assigned the case of the century—the hijacking of an airplane by D.B. Cooper. Zack’s used to hiding his sexuality but working with Duke Magruder is even more of a challenge. Not only do they do have vastly different personalities but also contrasting opinions on how to work the case. Nonetheless, Zack is able to earn Duke’s begrudging respect.

Until Duke learns Zack’s secret.

When Zack finds a lead on the case Duke not only refuses to listen, he also refuses to work with Zack any longer. Zack’s career and his assignment are at jeopardy but that doesn’t mean he’s about to give up on finding Cooper, no matter how many years it takes.

Hijacked Love is a blend of mystery and historical fiction with a bit of romance thrown in.

5 Stars!!

This story is based on the events surrounding the 1971 airplane hijacking by D.B. Cooper. A young FBI agent at the time, Zack Pomeroy, works the case. We follow Zack over the period of the investigation, as well as throughout his later years. This cold case always remains in the back of Zack's mind waiting to be solved.

This was an enjoyable and fast paced read. It's a short read, but it isn't lacking for anything. The case and its resolution was exciting and had me sitting on the edge of my seat cheering Zack on. The love story between Zack and Phil was sweet and beautiful! Although the romance is not the main storyline, it is prevalent and Zack and Phil have an amazing chemistry and the sex was passionate, loving and sexy. Very recommendable!!

  1. Thanks for the good review, and the story sounds right up my alley. I like mystery/crime stories, as well as historicals, including this period. The 50s-90s for the glbtq community was an amazing period of change, pain and gain, fodder for a lot of good stories. - Purple Reader,

  2. I have just started reading historicals.

  3. I enjoy books from any time period.

  4. I'm not usually into historicals...the blurb has to really catch my imagination first

  5. I haven't read many "recent" historical because it is kind of weird thinking of the 80s-90s as historical *LOL*.
