The Odd Bureau Part 3 – Forgotten Folios Society
The letter I received in the mail last week was part 3 of 6 letters in a story series following a detective story in Vancouver.
If you read parts 1 and 2 already, you know that I’ve been sitting next to my mailbox every day waiting for the next piece of the story to arrive. Okay, not literally, but if I didn’t have other responsibilities and commitments I might actually do it. So far, I haven’t been disappointed by the mail order story service, and part 3 is no different.
Part 3 offers additional insight into Izzy’s character and, I think, really gets into the main plot of the story. Finally, Izzy and Jeeves (oops, I mean Bartholomew…) start working a case. And, as always, the letter ended with a major cliffhanger. If only one thing could be said about the Forgotten Folios Society, it’s that they make darn sure I’m checking my mailbox every day!
The authenticity of the letters still feels very real, and this letter proved that this authenticity is important to how the story is told. I wish I could tell you more, but I can’t give you too many spoilers! Just take my word that this is a subscription service well worth the money.
