    From the Publisher
    My grandmother is a big fan of the MRS. POLLIFAX mysteries by Dorothy Gilman. I was at first hesitant
    to try the books, because I wasn't sure if I'd be able to relate to mysteries featuring a suburban grandmother
    working for the CIA. But because my grandmother's taste in literature has always been impeccable,
    I decided to delve into Mrs. Pollifax's adventures. I began with THE UNEXPECTED MRS. POLLIFAX, the first
    in the series, and immediately found them delightful. Mrs. Pollifax is just the kind of grandmother I'd
    love to have: resourceful, intelligent, somewhat sly, and, of course, a secret CIA operative. Her
    adventures take her to all corners of the globe: from an authentically described communist China
    (MRS. POLLIFAX ON THE CHINA STATION) to an exhilarating safari across Africa (MRS. POLLIFAX ON
    SAFARI). I've thoroughly enjoyed joining her on her adventures, and intend to read them all. I recommend them
    to everyone who's interested in learning about different countries and cultures--and, obviously, espionage!

    Book Description
    "Mrs. Pollifax is the American cousin to Agatha Christie's Miss Marple."
    TORONTO STAR
    Mrs. Pollifax has been sent on safari by the C.I.A. and told only to take pictures of all of her companions, in order to find the international assassin whose next target is the president of Zambia. It sounded so simple, but shortly after Mrs. Pollifax started taking pictures, someone stole her film. And right after that she was kidnapped by Rhodesian terrorists. And right after that--well, read for yourself....


    Reader Reviews
    1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: Another fun outing for Mrs. Pollifax, February 1, 2002 Reviewer: Kevin W. Parker from Greenbelt, MD USA (Based on the audiotape, no longer available (?) ) Mrs. Pollifax is called upon by the CIA to undertake another mission, this time to photograph members of a safari, one of whom is an international assassin, nicknamed Aristotle. She innocently posts an ad in the local newspaper trying to contact her old friend Farrell from the first book. This leads to major complications as Farrell is involved with the freedom fighters across the border and has made some enemies. Another entertaining outing and with a bit of romance as a fellow traveler takes a fancy to Mrs. Pollifax. Barbara Rosenblat does another excellent job reading, coming up with clear, distinct, and identifiable voices for a myriad of characters.
