Mrs. Pollifax and the Missing Husband,
This review is from: Mrs Pollifax and the Golden Triangle (Mass Market Paperback)
Mrs. Pollifax and her new husband Cyrus are planning a restful vacation to Thailand. But hours before they leave, Bishop shows up and requests that they run one tiny errand for the CIA. Just take a few hours.
Naturally, things don't go as planned. When Mrs. Pollifax goes to meet her contact, she finds him dead on the floor of the hut. Returning to the street, she sees Cyrus being kidnapped. Her only hope is to pursue the kidnappers with a man she doesn't know - a man who might be a killer. Is there any hope that she will see Cyrus again alive?
For some reason, I remembered this book as being dark, and it isn't. However, it's not quite up to the usual high capped Mrs. Pollifax caper. Yes, there is suspense, but the book spent a bit too many pages trekking through the jungle when I wanted something to happen.
Of course, Mrs. Pollifax is charming and resourceful as always. I really can't complain about spending more time with her.
Fans of the series will enjoy this adventure, however it isn't Mrs. Pollifax at her best. If you are new to the series, start at the beginning and you'll be greatly rewarded.
