THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Mrs. Virgil (Emily) Pollifax of New Brunswick, New Jersey, was a widow with grown children. She was tired of attending her Garden Club meetings. She wanted to do something good for her country. So, naturally, she became a CIA agent. This time, the assignment sounds as tasty as a taco. A quick trip to Mexico City is on her agenda. Unfortunately, something goes wrong, and our dear Mrs. Pollifax finds herself embroilied in quite a hot Cold War--and her country's enemies find themsleves entangled with one unbelievably feisty lady.

A delightful introduction to the world of Mrs. Polifax! Rather than allowing her world to shrink to volunteering and garden teas, this widow decides to expand her world to include espionage. If you like the Miss Julia books, you'll love this enchanting heroine and her mysteries.
