Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Fun change of plot for Mrs P novel"

    Love to brain chill with a Mrs. P novel every now and then. Its like eating a cream puff, nothing really there, but enjoyable anyway. This is different than the usual formula for Mrs P books and I enjoyed the change up, made me want to read the next.

    "Trouble comes home for Mrs Pollifax"

    After Emily takes Cyrus to the airport she returns home to find she isn't alone. Searching Mrs Pollifax finds her unexpected guest. A white van becomes suspicious in Emily's neighborhood. All this sets up a story Mrs Pollifax and visitor are running from their pursuers.

    A call from an exhausted Mrs Pollifax brings the CIA to the rescue. Furthermore two crazy stories collide which sends Mrs Pollifax and crew to Africa.

    Emily Pollifax has spunk, is creative, resourceful, and genuinely interested in catching the crook(s). I want to be an Emily Pollifax when I grow up.

    "La Rosenblat never fails to amaze"

    A thousand voices from one talented actress makes the beloved series come alive. The intrepid Mrs P is stalked on her own turf discovering a stowaway hidden in her pantry closet. Her danger draws mrs p into a delicious journey of narrow escapes, a stint in the traveling circus, and the thwarting international skullduggery. A treat indeed

    "Follow the Adventure from America to Africa"
    What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Pollifax Pursued the most enjoyable?

    The narration is always superb with the accents of each character adding to the richness of the listening experience.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I lliked the addition of the character Kadi to the storyline.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    As always, Mrs. Pollifax!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never too late to join the CIA


    Any additional comments?

    The adventures of Mrs. Pollifax follow the tried and true storyline recipe after the initial introduction in the first book. While always a terrific listening experience, it is the narration of Barbara Rosenblat's talented use of foreign accents which helps to identify each charactors individuality.

    "Great story and performance but sound problems"

    If you listen to audiobooks while traveling 65 mph down the highway or walking on a treadmill, you will miss half of this book. Any time there is a conversation, the volume drops precipitously and no amount of turning it up will help. The last two chapters were basically inaudible as were various other parts of the book. I’m assuming this is a sound engineering problem and not the reader’s talking too softly. I’m off to check the book out from the library so I can find out what happened.

    "Different?"

    A new side of Mrs. Polifax, but she comes thru as only she does with cleverness , caring and surprising deliberation. Who would have thought to have Carstairs presence be so There when needed, and mesh so well with her thinking. Great read!

    "Mrs Pollifax never disappoints"

    I love Mrs Pollifax and Barbara Rosenblatt, and you will as well. It has everything - intrigue, excitement, humor and the best old lady spy that ever "lived".
