“You are in effect replacing a dead man, Mrs Pollifax …”

When Emily Pollifax answers the phone that morning, all thoughts of her garden club tea in the afternoon have to wait. Her CIA handler is asking if she could leave immediately on a mission that would take her halfway across the world. What can she say but yes?

Once again she finds herself off on an incredible escapade of international intrigue … this time from the exotic towns and countryside of inner Turkey, to a mysterious rendezvous with a gypsy caravan.

Armed with only an open mind and a little karate, Mrs Pollifax is the most unlikely and lovable of international spies.

“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.”
