The retired yet adventurous Emily Pollifax heads to China to rescue a prisoner for the CIA … and almost loses her life in the bargain!
Author: Dorothy Gilman
The CIA has sent Emily Pollifax to Switzerland to a famous health resort to track down a missing package of plutonium. It’s Mrs. Pollifax’s talents that make her perfect.
From one adventure to the next, from a night-blooming cereus to a mission to deliver eight forged passports, this unlikely spy is off with a new hat.
Life had relaxed back into Garden Clubs and teas, so when Emily Pollifax took the call from the CIA, she was all too ready to leave on a mission halfway across the world.
Mrs Pollifax must identify an international assassin whose next target is the president of Zambia. Only, this safari gets complicated when she advertises to find Farrell.
