Mrs Pollifax and the Lion Killer
The intrepid Mrs Pollifax is drawn into another nerve-racking mission.
In response to a desperate SOS, young Kadi Hopkirk flies to the African country of Ubangiba, where her childhood friend, Sammat, is soon to be crowned king. Mrs Pollifax joins her, reluctant to allow the girl to venture alone into what she fears may be grave risk.
On arrival they soon discover that Sammat has dangerous enemies. Rumors are springing up that he is a sorcerer who is responsible for a rash of shocking murders. So Mrs P. steps in, hunting for the source of the bloody terrorism that threatens them all …
Armed with only an open mind and a little karate, Mrs Pollifax is the most unlikely and lovable of international spies.
