Summary:

Mrs. Virgil (Emily) Pollifax of New Brunswick, New Jersey, was a widow with grown children. She was tired of attending her Garden Club meetings. She wanted to do something good for her country. So, naturally, she became a CIA agent. This time, the assignment sounds as tasty as a taco. A quick trip to Mexico City is on her agenda. Unfortunately, something goes wrong, and our dear Mrs. Pollifax finds herself embroilied in quite a hot Cold War--and her country's enemies find themsleves entangled with one unbelievably feisty lady.

    Mrs Pollifax is an unlikely spy, she stumbles into it. She has none of the trade craft of Smiley's people at MI-6, or Jack Ryan. But you fall in love with her as she continues to stumble through her adventure. And she can never tell anyone what she has done. I first met Mrs Pollifax a few years ago in the library. I was so pleased to finally get to 'read' Gillman's first adventure for her.
