Book Description

Mar 1996
Mrs. Pollifax is on hand in Morocco to back up an inept CIA agent, and it's a good thing. Their first informant is killed, and Mrs. Pollifax begins to get the idea that her colleague is not who he says he is. Still, she forges ahead, checking out suspicious informants, and coming to the conclusion that someone is an imposter and someone wants her dead....

5.0 out of 5 stars Dorothy Gilman Does it Again! 17 Jun 1996
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Once again, Dorothy Gilman brings her reader along
with Emily Pollifax on another of her adventures. This
time Mrs. Pollifax visits Morocco, from the medina of Fez
to a small village on the edge of the desert (complete with
camel caravan). As always, Mrs. Pollifax overcomes each
obstacle with grace and skill (and the occasional bit of
luck) and wins out in the end. We get a mini history
lesson of the area and a brief lesson on Sufi whirling.
Dorothy Gilman continues to provide lovers of mystery novels
with a heroine worthy of being any woman's (or man's) role
model. Thanks for another great read, Dorothy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mrs. Pollifax and the Spy Network 31 Aug 2013
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's a gloomy January day, and Mrs. Pollifax is feeling depressed. More than anything, she's wishing for an assignment from Carstairs. And just then, Bishop calls asking if she is available. They have an agent all set to journey through Morocco visiting seven members of a spy chain they have making sure that none of them have been replaced by an imposter. But something about the agent's picture doesn't sit right with Carstairs, so he wants Mrs. Pollifax to go along and help smooth any rough edges.

When Mrs. Pollifax arrives, she is not met at the airport and finds her co-agent most disagreeable. They identify the first agent in the network, but he is dead within the hour. Can Mrs. Pollifax trust her co-agent? Will she get out alive?

This was my introduction to Mrs. Pollifax many years ago, and it remains a personal favorite. Even reading it in order, it stands out from the two previous books in the series. This is Mrs. Pollifax doing what she does best - getting in way over her head and somehow managing to battle the odds. Along the way we get a look at the culture and scenery of the country. That can slow things down a little, but never for long and it helps set the book in time and place.

Speaking of which, this book in the series originally came out in 1990. As with all books in the series, it is set in the "current" time period, so read accordingly.

It is always a pleasure to visit Mrs. Pollifax and take another wild ride with her. Fans of the series will be delighted with this romp.

I have not had time to reread it yet. I had the book before but some "friend" borrowed it and did not return it. I have therefore just made the review upon the condition of the book.
