    A missing salami leads Mrs. Pollifax to a shocking discovery: a woman is hiding in her house. Even more unsettling is the revelation that ever since the young woman had a chance encounter with the heir to the throne of Ubangiba, she has been followed by deadly hit men. What do these men want?

    The adventures of Mrs. Pollifax follow the tried and true storyline recipe after the initial introduction in the first book.

    Von seinem Intimfeind Langhammer überredet, fährt Kluftinger mitten in der Nacht zum Schloss in Bad Grönenbach, um nach dem Rechten zu sehen. Dort findet er die Frau des Barons ermordet vor: In grotesker Pose drapiert wie auf einem uralten Gemälde des Schlosses. Liegt die Lösung des Falls in der Familiengeschichte? Und warum verschwindet der Baron immer wieder im schlosseigenen Märchenwald? Große Aufregung auch bei Kluftinger zu Hause: Sein Sohn heiratet seine langjährige Freundin Yumiko, und zur Feier haben sich ihre Eltern aus Japan angekündigt. Da lässt es sich Dr. Langhammer natürlich nicht nehmen, dem Kommissar bei dieser kulturellen Herausforderung zu helfen.

    Story

    While the dialect was sometimes difficult to understand, the narration added interesting personality development into each character. Murder in a castle with a mysterious family background is only the beginning. The plot encompasses the professional and personal life of Kluftinger, his Japanese in- laws -to -be staying as house guests the week before the wedding of his son to their daughter, Yumiko, and his exceptionally keen police work. Klufty and Yumiko's father lend humorous context to the story as the language barrier created hilarious predicaments. This story was thoroughly enjoyable, and sometimes required a second or third listen for sheer pleasure of reliving the visual imaging.
