Going Postal(Discworld, #29)
Nebula Award nominee 2005, Locus Award nominee 2005, Tähtifantasia Award nominee 2013.
Moist von Lipwig was a con artist and a fraud and a man faced with a life choice: be hanged, or put Ankh-Morpork's ailing postal service back on its feet.

Getting a date with Adora Bell Dearheart would be nice, too.
Maybe it'll take a criminal to succeed where honest men have failed, or maybe it's a death sentence either way.
Or perhaps there' s a shot at redemption in the mad world of the mail, waiting for a man who's prepared to push the envelope…
