This series is excellent and surprising. An unusual book because it is about a CIA operative who is well past the age you would normally expect to find. This is because Mrs. Pollifax didn't start until after her kids were raised with kids of their own and she was a widow finding life dull and boring. Her life is anything but now as she circles the globe finding adventure and risk wherever she goes. This is the second book in the series.

Another great Mrs Pollofax adventure. This time she is headed to Turkey to pass a defecting spy money and a passport . . . but of course things don't go as planned and its Mrs Pollifax's charm and wit that save the day. The traditionally good guys and the bad guys just aren't who they seem.

As usual, wonderful. Mrs. Pollifax is an excellent travel companion, even if you're only take a mental vacation.

In this novel, Gilman continues her delightful tale-spinning of the adventures of Mrs. Pollifax, including the elements that made the first book such an engaging read.

The humor and barely noticeable moral explorations are again implemented here, complementing the action and suspense surrounding Mrs. Pollifax's supposedly innocuous assignment. Her amusing tangents to her mission (involving the admirable Colin Ramsey) produce a constant source of surprise and attentiveness in readers - or, in this case, listeners.

Highly recommended.

Dorothy Gilman is a nice, easy read. Mrs. Polifax is always into something! I first read these books when I was in my 30's and now I'm in my 60's. I can relate to Mrs. Polifax now. We all want a little adventure in our lives.

This book was recommened to me by another PBS member. I requested it and was plesantly surprised at how good it was. Mrs. Pollifax is a widowed, middle-aged women who got tied of gardening and afternoon teas and decides to apply to the CIA. Thus begins her daring and at times dangerous adventures. I loved it and quickly ordered her first book which I am patiently awaiting to receive. I'm sure whoever orders this book will not be disappointed. Slow to start but certainly picks up speed to its breath-taking ending.
The book is old and slightly worn but in very good condition.

When Emily Pollifax answered the phone that Sunday morning she quickly forgot about her Garden Club tea in the afternoon. The last time she had heard the voice on the other end of the line it had sent her off on a journey that plunged her into a wild tangle of secret agents and high adventure. Now the man from the CIA was asking if she could leave immediately on a mission that would take her halfway across the world. what could she say but yes?
