Book Overview

Pollifax fans rejoice! The courageous Connecticut matron whose prize-winning geraniums are second only to her dazzling defense maneuvers is back. Hailed an "enchantress" by The New York Times, Mrs. Pollifax is the CIA's most indispensable "bloodhound" and *as to be expected *she's hot on the track, stealthily sniffing out some major skullduggery. This time she's on loan to her retired CIA friend Farrell. Her bag lady act is the first phase of a mission...

Much of the same, but still entertaining

This entry in the Pollifax canon shares many traits with many of Gilman's other books, but still manages to entertain and intrigue. Yes, Emily has had to wait around a monument to meet an opposite number she's never before met. Sure, she's already been befriended by families and found refuge in the desert. But, somehow, the formula continues to work without feeling stale. An entertaining read throughout.

Unexpectedly Charming

Having a few hours at my disposal this morning, I picked up this, my first Mrs Pollifax, which I'd been given as a gift, but never read. Imagine my surprise when what I thought would be an insubstantial bit of fluff turned out to be a well-plotted, riveting introduction to a woman whose further acquaintance I shall certainly pursue.Mrs Pollifax's adventures in Jordan have nothing of the implausible about them, a neat trick when one considers that the premise is so fantastic: a grandmotherly gardening enthusiast who just happens to be a well-trained CIA "asset." Her lively approach to what life brings her is utterly charming; beware, Mrs Pollifax will steal your heart away.

She's done it again!

Through the streets of Amman, Emily Reed-Pollifax has escaped danger and put the world in curious suspicion of the gray-haired grandmother yet again, and will continue to do so.

imaginative, funny, a definite must for your home library

Innocent tourist is another in a series of wonderfully written books. It's just the right amount of mystery, comedy, and action to give all of her readers a good time.

A Brillilant Mystery Travelogue.

Has Gilman ever written a bad or dull mystery? In all these years, I cannot recall one. The visits we take with Mrs. Pollifax remain interesting. This time it is the Middle East and Jordan and desert, and camels. And always the intrigue and the incredible stamina of this brilliant solver of international complexity.
