Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled

Seven weeks ago, a young American woman, Amanda Pym, faced down hijackers on board a flight to the Middle East and saved the lives of more than two hundred passengers. In a blaze of celebrity, she stepped off the plane in Damascus and was whisked away in a waiting car. Since then, NOTHING. The CIA believes she was kidnapped and murdered. Whose plans has the apparently ordinary young woman interfered with? The machinations of the mukhabarat, Syria's dreaded police?

Publisher's Summary

Seven weeks ago, a young American woman, Amanda Pym, faced down hijackers on board a flight to the Middle East and saved the lives of more than 200 passengers. In a blaze of celebrity, she stepped off the plane in Damascus and was whisked away in a waiting car. Since then, nothing. The CIA believes she was kidnapped and murdered.

Whose plans has the apparently ordinary young woman interfered with? The machinations of the mukhabarat, Syria's dreaded police? The schemes of cutthroat terrorists? Or has she simply gone into hiding?

Masquerading as Amanda Pym's worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax begins her determined search, slipping through Damascus' crooked streets and colorful, crowded souks, and trekking deep into the desert, hoping that rumor and whispers (which is all she has to go on) will lead her to the truth.

    "Saddness..."

    The Mrs. Pollifax series has been brain "cotton candy" for me and my grandmother to enjoy together. Over the years, I gradually acquired the whole series for grandma... except this book... I was waiting for Barbara Rosenblat to record it. I finally gave up... apparently it isn't going to happen. Although Sharon Williams is a fine narrator, every time she spoke for Mrs. Pollifax it jarred me, because it just wasn't the right voice. This book, the last of the series, is very short, borrows heavily from plot lines in prior books (kept thinking I had read it before) and just plain old isn't as good as her previous books. If you want to check out this series, start with "The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax" #1 and read more or less in order... stop before reading this one... unless you really, really love them.

    "Different Narrator. Good story, but last in serie"

    Sharon Williams is good, but she doesn't portray the age of Mrs. Pollifax effectively. It was a bit jarring to go from the elderly woman Barbara Rosenblatt played to such a younger characterization. The story itself is excellent. It could only have been better if Mrs. Pollifax had made a decision in the story that it was going to be her last mission instead of leaving it open.

    A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!

    "The last one"

    Sadly, this is the last of Mrs. Polliax's adventures. Once again this senior citizen outwits the bad guys when no one else can. She has to find a kidnapped American and get her out of Syria. With her usual charm and unexpected karate skills, she accomplishes her mission in her own way. The narrator does a good job, but I prefer Barbara Rosenblat's narration.

    "Vapid"

    I couldn't believe this book was recommended by NPR. Nancy Drew novels have more substance.
    Be sure to listen to a sample if you are considering buying this. It was a waste of a credit.

    "Waste of time..."

    I completely agree with Holly from New Mexico. This book is poorly written, predictable and dull. I purchased it after looking at the reviews. Can't follow that logic anymore.
