Jordi-Punti lost luggage

Another book I heard on the bloggers grapevine courtesy of Cornflower Books. This was a bit of Houdini mystery. Now you see it and now you don't and after some time all the pieces came together beautifully.

Christof, Christofe, Christopher and Christofol - four sons, one father four different mothers in four different countries. Four sons and mothers who saw their father very little and then someone who disappeared from their lives. 

Strange how four sons, divided by language, culture and distance band together to find their father now deemed a missing person. How four of them very amicably go through page after page of their father's very interesting past to uncover why and what made him tick, what made him behave the way he did. The man was not a confidence trickster, not an intrinsically bad person but the upheaval in the lives of four women and four sons is a good story.

This is the last week of my stay in Melbourne. Going back to the last few months of trying to organise a wedding with the bride in Melbourne, the bridegroom in Ghana and the wedding in Colombo. There have been a few hiccups on the way. Hopefully everything will be smooth sailing from now on.


  1. Good review Mystica as always and going on the list!
    Now that the hiccups are over and done with, smooth sailing is the only way!
    All the best Dear and a safe trip home!

  2. Sounds like an interesting book.
    After planning the weddings of two children in the past 5 years I know how hiccups can come up. I hope everything is smooth sailing going forward!

  3. I like the plot. Intriguing. Thanks for sharing it with us.
