Again, there are missing hints. The smooth sophistication of Christie doesn't quite transfer here. But it satisfies the part of me that wants a good, face-value story. And Mrs. Pollifax is quite charming. ( )

That most unlikely of CIA agents - the charming, flowered-hat-wearing grandmother Mrs. Emily Pollifax - returns in this, her third international adventure. Dispatched to Bulgaria with passports hidden in her hat, her assignment was a simple one: make contact with a member of the underground political movement there and give him the passports, to enable dissidents to flee the country. But as was so often the case with Mrs. Pollifax, things proved to be more complicated. First, there was the question of her coat, which hid another bit of smuggled contraband, of which she herself was unaware. Then there was the innocent young American, arrested as a spy, imprisoned, and being used as an pawn in an international conspiracy. Mrs. Pollifax was, as Bishop noted back in Washington, a "meddler," and soon she was involved in another extraordinary adventure...

Every bit as delightful as its predecessors, The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax is amusing, entertaining and ultimately heartwarming. Its eponymous heroine is such an unlikely agent, not simply because of her age, but because of her goodhearted and trusting nature. It isn't that she's a fool - if anything, she is very wise, and is a good judge of character - but she wants to see the best in people, and this allows her to find allies in unlikely places, allies that a more cynical person would never have managed to find. As always, I found the setting here quite fascinating - I find that many of the countries and regions I want to visit, to this day, have features in this series - and the cast of secondary characters appealing. I loved the hilarious exchanges between Radev and Mrs. Pollifax, and the more romantic ones between Mrs. Pollifax and Tsanko. All in all, a wonderful adventure, every bit as entertaining as when I read it years ago! Highly recommended to anyone who has read and enjoyed the first two Mrs. Pollifax books. ( )

This is the third Mrs. Pollifax book I've read, and the third in the series. This time, Mrs. Pollifax is the unlikely CIA courier who is supposed to deliver some much-needed passports in Bulgaria. Mrs. Pollifax, on this third trip, should know she shouldn't talk to strangers and get involved in their affairs, especially when airports or airplanes are involved.. But keeping to herself – that's just not who she is.

These books are formulaic. Different places, different characters, different CIA contraband, but the intrepid Mrs. Pollifax conquers all, often (usually) unwittingly. So even though I'm pretty sure how they are going to turn out in the end, more or less, I still enjoy reading them. They are light, fun, and entertaining. And sometimes that's all you need from a book. ( )

I love Mrs. Pollifax. I really would like to be her when I grow up. ( )

Mrs. Emily Pollifax is probably the only lovable C.I.A. agent around and here, once again, she's in as full glory as her night-blooming cereus. On a simple courier assignment to deliver eight forged passports to a mysterious underground in communist Bulgaria, she ends up putting a dictatorial general in prison, corrupting the agency's last Bulgarian contact, and even storming the equivalent of a Bulgarian bastille to rescue a supposedly dead American. Oh, the entertaining Mrs. Pollifax.
