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

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.

beloved mrs. pollifax

I love these novels. they are suspenseful and at the same time amusing. who doesn't love the idea of an aging female finding the strength, sharp wit, intelligence and tenacity to outsmart the bad guys.

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!

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.

Danger, excitement, interesting char, & happy end.

Loved Mrs Pollifax as usual, she really packs in the th kms, and excitement into her weeks! From her home, to the circus, to paris briefly, then to Africa, before flying home. She does like to travel far! As always a hint of danger, full cast of interesting characters, and a happy ending! My favorite kind of story.
