Working with her retired CIA friend John Farrell, Mrs. Pollifax must smuggle a manuscript out of Jordan, a document that encodes the shocking truth of Saddam Hussein’s reign.
Hardly are the two airborne when the coils of Middle Eastern intrigue begin to unwind. Mrs. Pollifax’s seatmate is not the affable Arab businessman he pretends to be. It is not imagination that persuades Mrs. P. that wherever they go, she and Farrell are followed. To elude their pursuers in such a politically volatile country isn’t easy. In fact, it can be downright deadly. . . .
Dorothy Gilman (1923–2012) was the author of 14 Mrs. Pollifax novels, including The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax, the series debut; Mrs. Pollifax Pursued; Mrs. Pollifax and the Lion Killer; Mrs. Pollifax, Innocent Tourist; and Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled. She was also the author of many other novels, among them Thale’s Folly.

My Aunt Martha always loved Mrs. Pollifax–so when I told her I was working for Dorothy Gilman’s publisher she was thrilled, to say the least. "Imagine having the joy of reading a Mrs. Pollifax adventure and getting paid to do it!" I too share my aunt’s enthusiasm. All Mrs. P. novels–in particular Mrs. Pollifax, Innocent Tourist–strike an incredible balance between light-hearted fancy and genuine fright. And through every karate chop, she remains civilized to a T!
