    "GREAT WRITER - FANTASTIC VOYAGES!!!"

    After listening to ALL of this author's "Mrs. Polifax" series - back to back - I hungered for more stories of ordinary women doing extraordinary things in places far from home. I first tried "Uncertain Voyage" but it was nothing but "chick-lit", not worthy of Dorothy Gilman. Just a neurotic woman with loose morals who barely completed her "unexpected mission" because she was always moaning and whining over some man who wasn't worth a dime. But in this book and the Mrs. Polifax books, the reader gets to experience dangerous situations in foreign locales. Gilman is either well-traveled or an outstanding researcher who speaks all manner of languages. When you listen to one of her books, you feel that you are going places, dodging bullets, escaping from inescapable spots, meeting new and interesting people, and beating the odds. Well worth the price of a ticket to ride!!!!
