Going Postal

ebook

A splendid send-up of government, the postal system, and everything that lies in between in this newest entry in Terry Pratchett's internationally bestselling Discworld series.

Convicted con man and forger Moist von Lipwig is given a choice: Face the hangman's noose, or get Ankh Morpork's ancient Post Office up and running efficiently!

It was a tough decision . . .

Now, the former criminal is facing really big problems. There's tons of undelivered mail. Ghosts are talking to him. One of the postmen is 18,000 years old. And you really wouldn't want to know what his new girlfriend can do with a shoe.

To top it all off, shadowy characters don't want the mail moved. Instead, they want him dead—deader than all those dead letters. (And here he'd thought that all he'd have to face was rain, snow, and gloom of night . . .)
