Although Mrs. Pollifax is determined to give up spying for good, she can’t help but agree to carry a small object to an agent in Thailand, and get one in return. The moment she lands, however, Mrs. Pollifax is horrified to find her contact dead and her husband kidnapped. The next thing she knows, she’s tramping through the ominous Thai countryside, led by a curious fellow who may be trying to help her find her husband. Or he may have other, more sinister plans.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 2/20/2014

    " Been a while and I actually forgot that I read this. My Grandmother gave this to me one day and suggested I read it. I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shauna | 2/10/2014

    " I thought this was the weakest chapter in the series so far. Although Mrs. Pollifax remains indomitable, I found the rest of the characters a bit murky this time. It was hard to understand motivations (excepting Mrs. Pollifax's relentless search for Cyrus), and I was disappointed in the summation at the end. Still, the writing is solid and the adventure keeps you reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan Martin | 2/3/2014

    " I've read most of the other Mrs Pollifax mysteries some years ago and decided to read one more. As always they are fun, interesting and good mysteries. This one included "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce Hansen | 2/3/2014

    " A pleasure trip to Thailand turns into a dangerous mystery for the dauntless Mrs. Pollifax when, while delivering a package for the Bangkok CIA, her new husband, Cyrus, is kidnapped, and Mrs. Pollifax must brave a cesspool of smugglers, warlords, and drug dealers to save him. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jake | 1/31/2014

    " i can't believe i read this "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan | 1/21/2014

    " I like Mrs. Pollifax's journeys into the far east, especially when there just happens to be a small, easy job for the CIA that can be done at the same time. You know it won't be small or easy - one of the joys of Mrs. Pollifax is there is a comfortable formula and interesting things happen within that. I enjoy this one even with the presence of Cyrus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ayelet | 1/20/2014

    " Once again she succeeds in the craziest situations. I love the way Cyrus's friend is involved. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 1/18/2014

    " Parts of the plot seemed predictable, although I don't think I've read this before - but that didn't detract from beautiful description of the landscape and the people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lucy | 12/3/2013

    " #8 Cyrus gets kidnapped when he and Mrs. Pollifax are "vacationing" in Thailand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 11/15/2013

    " I enjoyed the subplot with Mornajay in this one. Nice to get to know a little personality in the other characters that usually appear only in the background. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kay | 10/21/2013

    " I was a little disappointed in this particular story. It's quite hard to put my finger on it - mostly, the book seemed to lack the humor I so enjoyed in the earlier novels in the series. Without that, to me it seems like just a so-so tale of espionage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 10/13/2013

    " The Mrs. Pollifax books are very fun light reads, but they're even more fun to listen to. Hearing it read so well really adds a lot to enjoying the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kailey | 5/2/2013

    " Another great spy novel! I love it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann | 4/8/2013

    " Unbelievable but a good read as an adventure story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan | 3/17/2013

    " I can't believe I hadn't heard about the Mrs. Pollifax series up until just a few months ago. This is seriously entertaining stuff! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 2/27/2013

    " I always enjoy the Mrs. Pollifax books. Delightfully improbable and 'true' all at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/17/2013

    " I like this series because it is light reading but still a "who done it". Mrs. Pollifax reminds me of "Miss Marple", American style. Mrs. Pollifax has a lot more zip. Hope eternal for the young at heart. Could not wait to see what she would get into (and out of) next. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 CS | 11/17/2012

    " Trite, predictable, syrupy, & hackneyed. Otherwise great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 7/19/2012

    " I believe this adventure book talks about how the drug trade dominates the lives of many people, good and bad. As usually this book brings to mind Angela Lansbury and her adventures as an older lady who goes undercover. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindee | 7/14/2012

    " I find this series very enjoyable. "
