I have been waiting for the Mrs. Pollifax books narrated by Barbara Rosenblat since I became an Audible member. I am crossing my fingers and hoping they get the rest of them.
I really enjoy the way Ms. Rosenblat handles all the different accents these books require. Having heard her versions first, I just can't get into those read by different narrators.
If you aren't familiar with Mrs. P, she is a grandmother who ends up working for the CIA and traveling the world making friends while confronting the bad guys with wit and aplomb. These books are sort of "cozy" espionage tales with plenty of excitement & adventure but definitely character based.
This one is #5, but you don't really have to have read the previous ones to be able to get into this one. It is one of my favorites.

"Mrs. Pollifax on Safari" is an exciting story. It's about international terrorism, kidnapping, assassins, romance and spies.
Bored with retirement life Mrs. Pollifax became a courier for the CIA. Needing an agent in a hurry to join a safari to find an elusive assassin and the party who wants to hire him/her they call on Mrs. Pollifax who is the only one in their files available to be sent to Africa on short notice. She is sent on safari by the CIA to take a lot of pictures of everyone on safari; nothing else. They need the pictures to try to identify their man, but in true Mrs. Pollifax style she becomes embroiled in the country's political intrigue and loses her pictures.
The story is brought to life by the extraordinary talent of Barbara Rosenblat, and the length of the story is just right for an evening of listening pleasure.
Most people Mrs. Pollifax meets are not who they claim to be (including herself) which makes for an interesting story.
