After his father’s Royal Air Force plane is shot down, eleven-year-old Finneus Winch is sent to stay with his grandparents in the quiet town of Pickridge. But when a small Royal Mail plane crashes in his grandparents’ backyard, Finn finds that Pickridge is far from boring. With the pilot nowhere to be found, Finn snatches a bag of post from the cargo hold just before the plane disappears. Finn sets off to deliver the post to the unusual residents of Pickridge, and along the way discovers that each letter contains a clue, and he’s being sent on a secret mission.
