Mystery – The One Penny Orange Mystery

The One Penny Orange MysteryThe One Penny Orange Mystery
By Morris Ackerman
Publisher: CreateSpace
ISBN: 978-1461184669
Pages: 402
Genre: Mystery

In new mystery, collectors jet across globe to nab million dollar stamp The theft of a rare stamp that dates from colonial-era Mauritius ignites a worldwide search for its recovery in “The One Penny Orange Mystery” by Morris Ackerman

In “The One Penny Orange Mystery”, Morris Ackerman dives into the intrigue and passions that power the little known world of elite stamp collecting. In this mystery, several renowned collectors pursue an exceedingly rare stamp that was stolen during an auction in Washington, D.C. Valued at over $1 million, the coveted piece of postage comes from the remote island nation of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, once a colonial island and now a tropical resort.

Like many valuable stamps, the one penny orange derives its exorbitant price from an engraver’s error. When the British wrested control of Mauritius from the French in the 19th century, the new government issued the eponymous orange stamp to mark the first colonial stamp issued outside of Britain. The novel’s protagonist, Edward Postmark, a former colonial military attaché, returns to Mauritius and finds a copy of the one penny orange. He puts it up for sale at a well-known auction house in Washington, DC, not realizing its discovery makes stamp collectors green with envy, so much so that it is stolen during the auction. Soon, a worldwide search for this elusive bit of paper has commenced in full. Beyond its page-turning plot, “The One Penny Orange Mystery” will provide readers with a glimpse inside the high stakes and unique social dynamics of the philatelic elite for whom stamp collecting is an all-consuming passion. Two collectors meeting at the famous auction house find romance as well as stamps for their collections.

Ackerman was inspired to write the mysterious “The One Penny Orange Mystery,” after learning about global cultures and geography through philately. His interest in stamp collecting dates back to his military service during World War II, where he served in the Philippines and began collecting the postage of remote tropical islands.

“The One Penny Orange Mystery” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels. About the Author: Morris Ackerman earned a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering from Catholic University. He is a former engineering vice president at Link, a builder of air pilot and astronaut simulators, including the Apollo simulator featured in the movie, “Apollo 13.” During his Navy service in World War II, he was stationed on Samar Island in the Philippines, an experience which jumpstarted his interest in philately.

Genre: Non-fiction. Anthology/Spiritual/Philosophy

The Mystery of Fate: Common Coincidence or Divine Intervention? an award-winning anthology of over fifty stories or encounters from both Uslander and Warneka and other authors of diverse cultures and various occupations from around the world. Each shares real stories of circumstances and situations that are so extraordinary and unexplainable that they may leave some wondering whether such encounters are mere coincidences or of divine intervention. In numerous instances throughout the book, one small seemingly insignificant action or deed; a decision or following one’s own intuition, lead to a profound change, transformation, and/or the saving of a life.

Whether one terms these occurrences fate, blessings, miracles, coincidences, luck or divine intervention, encountering such brings us to a complete halt, garners our undivided attention and leaves us with the realization that there are things we cannot explain, fully understand or control. If, you have been reticent about sharing your own extraordinary and unexplainable encounters for fear of how they will be received by others, after reading Authors A. Uslander’s and B. Warneka’s and numerous other authors’ stories in this amazing book, your fears will, hopefully, be put to rest.
