To be honest, I really didn't like this book at all. The Countess is the typical "I can see everything" psychic but one that with her past should be in her 90's not late 40's -the setting time is really screwy. Detective Pruden is really not fleshed out much. The stories were quite contrived, but other readers seem to like it. I haven't read her other series, and unsure I will after reading this one.

Another great book by Dorothy Gilman -- not a Mrs. Pollifax book, but very good!

This series is a favorite of mine. There is always more than one mystery and I really like that a lot.

This is NOT a Mrs. Pollifax novel as I thought it was but a story about a psychic. It was very light, good reading, however.

This is a standalone book but when I finished it I wished there was a sequel so I could follow up on the characters in the book. You get to know and love the main characters.

It's wonderful to engage another Gillman character in Madame Karitska. Several murder mysteries in one, this book is an engaging delight. Be sure to check out Madame Karitska's Kaleidescope as well!

Dectective work in a new demention, an interesting tale in the best tradition of Mrs. Pollifax.

I loved this book. The Countess is a wonderful character, an upbeat, offbeat, down to earth type of woman who has been around the block, around the world but still believes in hope, love, and happy endings. I wish D. Gilman could do a zillion more with this character in them.
