The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax

The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax - Dorothy Gilman

The Unexpected Mrs Pollifax


Mrs Emily Pollifax is a 60-ish widow wanting more from life than teas and garden club meetings. In search of adventure, she decides to offer her services to the CIA - who, after all, would spot a suburban grandmother as a cold war secret agent? - and adventure she finds.Her first assignment, in Mexico City, doesn't sound dangerous - until something goes wrong. She suddenly finds herself abducted across the world, embroiled in quite a hot Cold War... and her abductors find themselves entangled with one unbelievably feisty lady. Armed with only an open mind and a little karate, Mrs Pollifax is the most lovable and unlikely of international spies.
What readers are saying: "Love, love, love Mrs Pollifax. Ms Gilman has an extraordinary way of keeping you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages of her books." "How can a sweet little old lady get into so much trouble? Mrs Pollifax is a gem and a hoot ""A book that gives you a big smile on every page. I'm looking forward to my next Mrs Pollifax adventure.""Who wouldn't fall in love with a senior citizen who wears absurd hats, pushes the book cart at the hospital, and knows karate?""I first read the Mrs Pollifax books when I was a little girl and I keep coming back to read the books again and again.""Read it, it's the best thing you can do for yourself. It's like a reminder of the zest for life." Editorial reviews: "Mrs Pollifax is an enchantress." New York Times"Mrs Pollifax gives Agatha Christie's Miss Marple a rival to reckon with."
