In Dorothy Gilman’s bestselling mystery series, loveable grandmother Emily Pollifax has captured the hearts of millions with her secret CIA missions. Mrs. Pollifax, Innocent Tourist whisks the gray-haired agent into a perilous web of intrigue that spreads across the drifting sands of the volatile Middle East.

Farrell, an old CIA friend, must collect an inflammatory manuscript smuggled out of Iraq into Jordan. Farrell has a simple request for Emily—provide cover during his trip to Jordan by posing as his fun-loving elderly cousin. But before the plane even lands, danger begins stalking the sprightly Mrs. Pollifax.

Outwitting her wily opponents with her keen eye for the truth and her impeccable karate, Mrs. Pollifax is the lively senior citizen everyone dreams of someday becoming. You’ll feel you know the aging spy and her colorful opponents personally with Barbara Rosenblat’s outstanding narration.

    " I distinctly recall reading this as my DEAR (Drop everything and read) book in Grade 6, and not being able to explain the plot properly in my reading journal because we didn't have much time to write that day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by R | 2/9/2014

    " I like the Mrs. Pollifax series, she is an older widow (60's) that works for the CIA on secret missions. She reminds me a bit of Angela Lansbury in Murder she wrote, but she knows karate, gets put into prison camps and meets lots of great characters. There is never anything (language, sex) to be embarrassed by, they are a great listen in the car as well, the kids enjoy them too. "

    " Having been to the Middle East, I found it very interesting to reflect on my very "tame" experiences of being an American tourist/student. "

    " As one of Dorothy Gilman's Mrs. Pollifax series, this book doesn't disappoint. One of the few mysteries that my husband and I both read. It has enough mystery for me and enough action for him. "
