The last thing Mrs. Pollifax expects to find in her junk closet is a young woman hiding. Kadi Hopkirk insists that she’s being followed by two men in a dirty white van. Under the cover of darkness, Mrs. P tries to drive Kadi back home to Manhattan, only to have a dark green sedan give them a run for their money—and, Mrs. P. begins to suspect, their lives.

Finally Kadi shares the startling truth: her friend, Sammy, is the son of the assassinated president of an African country, and unbeknownst to the young man’s bodyguard, he passed her something under the table during a recent meeting. Ever resourceful, Mrs. P puts in a call for help to her CIA colleague, Carstairs, who installs them in a safe house—at a carnival! Before Mrs. P knows it, a dash to safety expands into an assignment that leads to hair-trigger violence in exotic places.

    " The Mrs. Pollifax book are fun, fast, light reads. Perfect reading for an "up north at the cabin" weekend. I especially enjoyed this one. Who can't be intrigued with the colorful characters and unique experience of life with a carnival. Very fun! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Shauna | 2/17/2014

    " I enjoyed this one a little more in that Mrs. Pollifax is not assigned a case, but picks one up anyway, after finding a girl hiding in her closet. I like that in the end they still get to travel, and I loved that Carstairs gets to go too! "

    " I have read and reread almost all the books in this series so many times! Best Medicine ever when I have the doldrums or am sad. Spunky Mrs Pollifax and the people she meets and simply the idea of what life can bring when we step out and take chances and follow our dreams. "
