This is her last book of the series and I am really sad because I loved this entire series. This book is a fun read and is both funny and exciting in different parts of the book. Her character is one who refuses to get old and do nothing so she works for the CIA on occasion and never fails to find adventure.
This is the first of the series I've read and since reading "Unveiled" I've gotten several others at the library. A 60-something widow who, as courier for the CIA, becomes involved in spying in Egypt, Zambia, Bulgaria, Albaia, Turkey, etc. Pure fun.
After facing down hijackers on a flight to the Middle East and saving the lives of the passengers on board, a young American woman steps off the plane in Damascus in a blaze of celebrity and disappears. The CIA believes Amanda Pym was kidnapped, possibly murdered. Masquerading as Amanda Pyms worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax begins her determined search, slipping through Damascuss crooked streets and crowded souks . . . and trekking deep into the desert. Yet she is shadowed by deadly enemies, whose sinister agenda threatens not only Mrs. P. but the fragile stability of the entire Middle East. Only a miracleor a brilliant counter-plot can forestall a disaster that will send shock waves around the world.
