I thoroughly enjoy this series especially with B. Rosenblat as the narrator. She captures the characters and atmosphere beautifully.
The story didn't feel quite as complete as the first book that I read about Mrs. Polifax, but it was still a lot of fun. I'd listen again!
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!
Mrs. Pollifax goes to China - and manages to make friends even with the police! She is supposed to help another agent free someone from a labor camp and get them out of the country. A tall order, but Mrs. P is determined not to let Carstairs down. Mayhem and mirth ensue. And Mrs. Pollifax, as usual, goes far beyond her mission objectives. Well worth the credit!
I've enjoyed some of the later books in this series. Was disappointed to find this so contrived and poorly written. The reader didn't have much to work with but managed to make it worse.
