Now the incredible Mrs. Pollifax has been sent on a safari to smoke out a very clever international assassin whose next target is the president of Zambia. 
/> Just take a lot of pictures of everyone on that safari, the CIA man told her. One of them has to be our man.
It sounded simple enough. But it wasn't. Because shortly after Mrs. Pollifax started taking pictures, someone stole her film. And right after that she was kidnapped by Rhodesian terrorists. And right after thatwell, read for yourself. . .

Another romp, this time through Zambia ... really liked the pacing of this one, with more showcasing of the exotic scene and the feeling of Africa, with all the action sort of piling up at the end.

Plus: is there romance in the air for Emily?? :)

2019 reread via Recorded Books audiobook narrated by Barbara Rosenblat
----------------------------
August 2016 reread -- I am increasing my rating from 3 to 4 stars. The Mrs. Pollifax books aren't great literature but they are a lot of fun and the best of them stand up well to rereading.

Amazing how the world has changed since this was first published in 1976 - issues that were of great contemporary interest then are now of more historical interest. But the characters still shine :)

This entry of the Mrs. Pollifax series introduced Cyrus Reed! ( )

Absolutely fun. Though highly improbable. Gilman didn't miss as many clues here, or maybe I just tuned in better. That last chapter was a delightful way to wrap it all up. ( )

Listening to Mrs. P on double speed, as she meets Cyrus is the way to go if you've read it before. ( )

Africa, 1970s, historical-fiction, history-and-culture, spies, assassins, romance, abduction*****

I have probably read the print copy three times, and this is the second time on audio, all this century. Emily Pollifax is a nice widow of a certain age with two children and a couple of grandchildren. And an occasional courier assignment for the CIA. Well, this WAS set in the late 1970s. That is especially evident in this mystery set in Africa. Not that paid assassins need any timeline, of course. Its a good story of a good series and even more fun to compare the political situations to those of today. All of the characters are VERY interesting.
Narrator Barbara Rosenblatt is always great with her pleasant voice and ability to differentiate characters and emotions. ( )

It was barely eight o'clock in the morning when the telephone call came in from Algiers, but Carstairs was already at his desk high up in the CIA building in Langley, Virginia.

She wondered if Amy Lovecraft's life had been difficult: she was a very attractive woman and must once have been lovely, but so very often beautiful women grew up lopsided or didn't grow at all. She thought there was a curious hardness about her, as if her beauty was a deceptively rich topsoil, thinly spread over rock.
