***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
When Benjamin Grant’s son disappeared a year ago, he threw himself into the search, and his obsession left him without a home, wife, or job. Now, he’s managed to find work at the United States Postal Service’s Mail Recovery Center, which he hopes will prove an invaluable tool in his investigation. With the help of his coworker, Sylvia—a kleptomaniac artist—Ben learns the ins and outs of a warehouse full of lost mail, and explores every lead in his son’s case. But when it all points towards the monstrous Leonard Moscovich, Ben fears the worst.
Before saying anything else I point out that your purchase of ‘Undeliverable’ if you do so will help to support the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). To learn more or donate, visit www.missingkids.com
This book is not, however, a fund raiser, – it’s a well written tale that will keep you interested to the last page. You will identify with Ben and feel his despair at the loss of his son. You will also get a fascinating insight into the world of undelivered mail and how the USPS does its best to find a home for it. The description of this was essential to the story and the reason I limited myself to four stars was that I felt the order of events at the beginning could have been improved; I would have preferred to learn Ben’s history, particularly the circumstances of his son’s disappearance and his leaving the matrimonial home before finding him working for the USPS. As it is we only learn details of his problems when Ben allows Sylvia to learn his past. She was my favourite character and I hope to meet her again. I note that the other person giving only four stars on Goodreads felt the same.
You will have no doubt that the author has talent and will, like me, read future adventures of Ben and Sylvia which I hope are to come.
