Title: My Life Undercover ~ the adventures of a white-collar investigator Author: Mary Erickson Publisher: Behler Publications Release date: 2004, ISBN: 0-9748962-7-6 Format Reviewed: First edition, SoftCover Reviewer: Claudia Turner VanLydegraf, Age Group (Adult-/Young Adult ¿ Teen ¿ Child (reading Level age): Most Teen, Adult. Mary Erickson has a way and style of writing that lets the reader think they are actually remembering the way things were when the stories in this book take place. She puts her reader right there and lets them see the actions or memories through her eyes. She lets you make your own stories coincide with hers. This book will open the eyes of younger readers by letting them glimpse the past and the limits of things that everyone takes for granted now. She also makes it easy for that younger reader by having a Grandson as one of the main characters in this sweet novel. I liked the ways that she told the stories that were undoubtedly very upsetting to the people that some of those investigations were the eventual result. She was honest about the pitfalls and abuses of the system, and how those things affected people during that more naive time. Some of those very same things are still done to people every day and still affect people much the same ways; however, we are more educated to them now than we were then. TV, Newspapers, Radio and Cable have all given us more insight into the mind of a minor predator or wannabe criminal. My Life Undercover is an easy read, that brings a bit of nostalgia and a well placed, choke in the throat or a giggle, sigh, and smile every once in a while. I am sure that there are more stories this author has under her hat, which would make equally interesting reading. A pleasure to pick up and hard to put down, even though sometimes you have other things to do, you still want to sit and read of her Life Stories. A book that gently stirs the emotions and makes the reader more open minded to the realities of the people around them.
