Read full description of the books The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax:I'm a bit "obsessive" and so, when I find a series, I will bend over "backwards" (as the saying goes)to get them in order...I did that here.
This is another book that should strain the credulity of the reader (or listener) except that in the hands of Ms. Gilman it takes on the character of a comedy/drama/adventure (think I Spy with Robert Culp and Bill Cosby. How many remember that TV program?)that I would call a page turner...except that I listened to the audio version. :)
Here Carstairs, Mrs. Pollifax's handler, the man who accidentally sent her on her first assignment has need of her again and sends her to help a defecting spy. Of course, things don't go as planned...again. But then what fun would the book have been if things had gone as planned?
As I pointed out before...not a mystery fan, but these are good books. 4.5 here if I could give that.
Read information about the authorDorothy Gilman started writing when she was 9. At 11, she competed against 10 to 16-year-olds in a story contest and won first place. Dorothy worked as an art teacher and telephone operator before becoming an author. She wrote children’s stories for more than ten years under the name Dorothy Gilman Butters and then began writing adult novels about Mrs. Pollifax–a retired grandmother who becomes a CIA agent. The Mrs. Pollifax series made Dorothy famous. While her stories nourish people’s thirst for adventure and mystery, Dorothy knew about nourishing the body as well. She used to live on a farm in Nova Scotia, where she grew medicinal herbs. Her knowledge of herbs comes through in many of her stories, including A Nun in the Closet, in which a nun treats a man’s wounds with the herbs growing nearby. Many of Dorothy’s books, including Caravan, feature strong women having adventures around the world. Dorothy spent much of her life in Connecticut and Maine. She died at age 88 of complications of Alzheimer's disease.
