I must not be smarter than the average bear...

Any additional comments?

Once again, I didn't figure out who "did it" until 5 seconds before they exposed him. The plot is very well written. There were a few extraneous things that weren't germane to the plot, but they didn't take away from it. I thoroughly enjoyed this one -- like I have all of the previous books in the series. It's also fun to go back in time, when they couldn't pick up a cell phone, or get onto the Internet, or all of the other things we take for granted these days. So fun!!

Mrs Pollifax is an observant spy!

Emily Pollifax leaves her husband Cyrus at home so she can accompany Kadi on her way to Ubangiba. A fun novel with twists and turns leading the reader to certain characters. The are no lions in Ubangiba.

Mrs Pollifax meets some amazing people along the way on this personal trip. Some are worth the trip and others are not.

Suitable for the whole family. Kids may have a hard time following along but the verbiage is clean and the characters stay out of the bedroom. A quick listen. And you can't beat this kind of fun on television!

Enjoy Mrs Pollifax today. You will want to listen in order if you can. If you can't, don't sweat it. The story doesn't require that you know the previous novel.

My family really enjoys the spunk show by Mrs Pollifax.
