Overview

Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled (Mrs. Pollifax Series #14) by Dorothy Gilman, Barbara Rosenblat

After facing down hijackers on a flight to the Middle East and saving the lives of the passengers on board, a young American woman steps off the plane in Damascus in a blaze of celebrity and disappears. The CIA believes Amanda Pym was kidnapped, possibly murdered.

Masquerading as Amanda Pym's worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax begins her determined search, slipping through Damascus's crooked streets and crowded souks . . . and trekking deep into the desert. Yet she is shadowed by deadly enemies, whose sinister agenda threatens not only Mrs. P. but the fragile stability of the entire Middle East. Only a miracle or a brilliant counterplot can forestall a disaster that will send shock waves around the world.

While I found this book to be quite interesting, it was not what I expected. I thought this was supposed to be the conclusion for the Pollifax books but it is left too open-ended to be a real conclusion. The ending leads you to expect future books and the title is misleading. Stephanie Clanahan

I always enjoy the Pollifax stories. Gilman is a good story teller.

I own all of the Mrs.Polifax books and have to say that though this book was good it doesn't have the same edge of the seat quality.

I'm a serious fan of Dorothy Gilman. I own almost all her books. However, her latest books, including this one, have been somewhat disappointing. The stories seem simpler, and the characters don't seem as real. I'm not saying that this is a bad book. It isn't. But if you aren't familiar with the Mrs. Pollifax books, start with the earlier ones. They're much more interesting.

Emily Pollifax looks like everyone¿s harmless maiden aunt, but in reality, she is one of the CIA¿s top operatives. The resourceful Mrs. Pollifax has risked her life many times while on assignment for her country. Mrs. Pollifax teams up with freelancer John Farrell on an investigation into the disappearance of Amanda Pym in Syria. Ms. Pym was a fifteen-minute media superstar when she allegedly stopped an airplane hijacking from succeeding. Witnesses last saw Amanda enter a vehicle that waited for her at the Damascus Airport.

Farrell and Mrs. Pollifax land in Syria where the government places a tail on the duo. However, they quickly elude their shadow in order to obtain information that provides them with the first clue in their hunt. They soon enter the Syrian Desert where they meet American archeologist Joe Fleming. Joining the two operatives on their quest, Joe and the two spies seek an elusive individual who seems to be undergoing a rigorous training for a mission that has world implications.

Mrs. Pollifax is the international equivalent of Jessica Fletcher. Her latest adventure, MRS. POLLIFAX UNVEILED is filled with warmth and wit that will send readers to seek previous novels in the series. The lead protagonist thrives on adventure and action yet retains calmness during the dangerous storms she encounters. Farrell retains his enigmatic personality that keeps fans wondering about him. The story line flows smoother than silk while keeping the audience¿s attention from start to finish. Although this is a long running series, Dorothy Gillman keeps her tale and its characters as fresh as if they are making their debut. This ability is why readers will want another novel starring Mrs. Pollifax and Farrell.
