Overview

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. Since then, NOTHING. The CIA believes she was kidnapped and murdered.

Whose plans has the apparently ordinary young woman interfered with? The machinations of the mukhabarat, Syria's dreaded police? The schemes of cutthroat terrorists? Or has she simply gone into hiding?

Masquerading as Amanda Pym's worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax begins her determined search, slipping through Damascus' crooked streets and colorful, crowded souks, and trekking deep into the desert, hoping that rumor and whispers (which is all she has to go on) will lead her to the truth.

Unexceptional Mrs. Pollifax. I was a little disappointed by this addition to the series, as it seems that almost nothing happens, but being a Mrs. Pollifax fan in general I still enjoyed reading it. It was also a little strange reading it in light of all the recent violence in Syria.

Mrs. Pollifax's final assignment for Carstairs is back in the Middle East (and that is not a spoiler - simply a fact that this is the final book in the series). Reunited again with Farrell (who has become a regular!) they have to use their wits and ability to plan on their feet to rescue a kidnapped American. This is a more straight-forward story with no encounters with those "wise" men and women that Mrs. Pollifax often encounters.

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.
