A relaxing holiday in Thailand turns into a nightmare when Emily loses Cyrus to kidnappers.

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!
Once again, Emily Pollifax has a simple mission for Carstairs, just a simple addition to her planned vacation to Thailand with her husband Cyrus Reed. But things go wrong immediately when Cyrus is abducted, and Mrs. P goes after him. Many interesting twists in this adventure, and new friends made, as well as old friends found.
I really liked this detour into some other characters at Langley.
This one is like the first in immediate change of plans, physical challenges and resourcefulness.
Ms. Gilman enjoys, more and more each book, the opportunity to explore another culture with her readers.
Absolutely loved this whole series. Narration was great except for the last book in the series. Loved the locations and the detailed description about the people, customs, and traditions. Mrs. Pollifax character was a delight and loved her. Listened to the series twice through I enjoyed it so much. The narrator was so good, I can't imagine that reading the books would have been nearly as enjoyable.
Barbara Rosenblat's narration is wonderful. I really enjoy her voice.
That is was the usual style of spy adventure that I have come to expect from Mrs. P.
