From the Inside Flap
While waiting for a view of her night-blooming cereus, the mild-seeming Mrs. Pollifax received urgent orders for a daring mission to aid an escape. Soon, the unlikely-looking international spy was sporting a beautiful new hat that hid eight forged passports....

Mrs. Pollifax is only too delighted to help and soon she's off to Eastern Europe. Things will be hard since she will be under the watchful eye of Bulgaria's tourist board at all times. But why did someone break into her room in the middle of the night? What happened to the young American Mrs. Pollifax met in the airport? And will she deliver the passports?
When I read through this book the first time around, I was disappointed. I'm not sure what my problem was originally because I loved it this time. The adventure is as wild as always. I was alternately turning pages or laughing at people's reactions to Mrs. Pollifax. And the new friends she makes along the way are wonderful. True, the book is ruled by coincidence and isn't believable if you think about it. Trust me, you won't be thinking about those things. You'll have too much fun enjoying the ride.
Since the book was written and set in 1971 Eastern Europe, it is historical now. If you keep that in mind, you'll get a good picture of just how bad life was during that period of time.
While the adventures are dated now, they are still tons of fun. If you want to enjoy some escapist fiction, look no further then this series.
Read from July 24, 1992 to July 24, 2016
Interesting tale first published in 1971 about spies, communism, Balkan States politics, and a widowed senior citizen amateur voluteer employed as a courier by the CIA. Call it historical fiction.
Just suspend disbelief for a while and enjoy this view into a time and place not so different from now with a fascinating cast of characters doing things improbable even then. The story line holds interest, and the length is far from epic. The series is addictve and yet appropriate for any age reader, maybe even Harry Dresden.
