Description
Once again the irrepressible Mrs. Pollifax, that very special agent with her own very special brand of logic, is off on an incredible escapade of international intrigue . . . from the exotic towns and countryside of Turkey to a mysterious rendezvous with a gypsy caravan.
“You are in effect replacing a dead man, Mrs. Pollifax. . . .”
When Emily Pollifax answered the phone that Sunday morning she quickly forgot about her Garden Club tea in the afternoon. The last time she had heard the voice on the other end of the line it had sent of her off on a journey that plunged her into a wild tangle of secret agents and high adventure.
Now the man from the CIA was asking if she could leave immediately on a mission that would take her halfway across the world. What could Mrs. Pollifax say but yes?
Praise for The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax
“Mrs. Pollifax is an enchantress.”The New York Times
“One of the most suspense-creating and unorthodox heroines of our time is Mrs. Pollifax . . . . A charmer!”Shrevport Times
