Mrs Pollifax Unveiled
Mrs Pollifax undertakes perhaps her most high-stakes mission of all.
After facing down hijackers on a flight to the Middle East, a young American woman steps off the plane in Damascus in a blaze of celebrity and disappears. The CIA believes Amanda Pym was kidnapped, possibly murdered.
Masquerading as her worried aunt, Mrs Pollifax begins a determined search to find her, slipping through Damascus’s crowded souks, and trekking deep into the desert. Yet she is shadowed by deadly enemies, whose sinister agenda threatens not only Mrs P. but the fragile stability of the entire Middle East …
Armed with only an open mind and a little karate, Mrs Pollifax is the most unlikely and lovable of international spies.
