Mrs. Pollifax, the CIA's special operative from New Jersey, agrees to act as cover for a CIA agent who is traveling to Iraq to retrieve a manuscript written by a silenced Iraqi author. How is it that she happens to sit next to a terrorist on the airplane who hides a mysterious map and key in her belongings? Once again, Mrs. Pollifax finds herself at the center of an international intrigue.
I enjoy the Mrs. Polifax series & this book was no exception. Easy reading.
If you don't know Mrs. Pollifax, you are in for a treat! She is the most unexpected type of spy you will find. Always interesting!
In her the first Mrs. Pollifax book, Mrs. Pollifax is a mature older woman who was bored with life so she walked in to the CIA and asked for a job as a spy/secret agent! She had no idea what she was getting herself in to--but she is having a great time. I have loved all of the Mrs. Pollifax books and this one is no exception--another great adventure.
Mrs. Pollifax is board with life as a widow and joins the CIA. This is the 13th in the series, with Mrs. Pollifax heads to the middle east to smuggle out a manuscript that exposes Saddam Hussain
