As her fans already know, the intrepid CIA agent Emily Pollifax is an irrestible mix of Jane Marple and James Bond. But not even the CIA has much faith that Mrs. Pollifax can successfully pull off her latest mission.

Seven weeks ago, a young American woman, Amanda Pym, faced down hijackers on board a flight to the Middle East and saved the lives of more than two hundred passengers. In a blaze of celebrity, she stepped off the plane in Damascus and was whisked away in a waiting car, never to be seen or heard from again.

Has she been kidnapped and murdered, as the CIA suspects? Whose plans has the apparently ordinary young woman interfered with -- the mukhabarat, Syria's dreaded secret police, or cutthroat terrorists? Or has she simply gone into hiding?

Masquerading as Amanda Pym's worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax searches Damascus and deep into the desert for the missing woman...and the truth. But secret, deadly enemies shadow her every step...and threaten not only Mrs. Pollifax and her mission, but the fragile stability of the whole Middle East. And only a miracle -- or a brilliant counterplot -- can forestall a disaster that will send shock waves around the world.

Glad to read about another Mrs. Pollifax enthusiast. Her FINAL novel, though not a Mrs. Pollifax, was Kaleidoscope. It was a follow up to the Clairvoyant Countess. No, its not "whoo whoo". It's about a Countess who puts all of her experiences together and saves a kidnapped woman and prevents a takeover.

Maze in the Heart of the Castle, one of her children's books, is now worth over $100.00.

I miss her and all of her many books even those non series books. Try them all!

A delightful final novel in the Mrs. Pollifax series, Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled leaves the reader wanting more, both from the titular and the supporting characters. Unfortunately, health problems prevented Dorothy Gilman from publishing any more, and she died in 2012. She started writing as a successful children's author, switching mid-career to mystery novels featuring the 60-something Mrs. Pollifax as an unlikely heroine in a genre filled with nubile sleuths half her age. While the plots sometimes rely too heavily on coincidence, the books are fun and imaginative. Brava, Dorothy! Brava, Mrs. Pollifax!
