Not As Good As The Others I Read

I found Book 10: "Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief" even too far fetched for a Mrs. Pollifax mystery to be truly entertaining.

Mrs. Emily Pollifax is sent to Italy in response to former CIA Farrell's SOS. There she finds John Sebastian Farrell wounded and needing to be kept out of sight. Her assigned Italian companion turns out to be a young woman of many talents as Emily soon learns while outrunning and out-maneuvering the string of cars following them.

There's a plethora of characters. Sometimes it's hard to keep their different roles in mind while mentally picturing what is happening and why. She and Farrell run into a former nemesis, a hired assassin Mrs. Pollifax had met in Africa on safari. Emily and Farrell were responsible for his imprisonment in France; where he should still be. "So, how could he be in Italy?"

Barbara Rosenblat gave a sterling performance, as usual. In my opinion she carried the story.

I love Mrs. Pollifax, but for those contemplating one of her stories, I would forgo this one.

Great series

Would you consider the audio edition of Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief to be better than the print version?

Absolutely loved this whole series. Narration was great except for the last book in the series. Loved the locations and the detailed description about the people, customs, and traditions. Mrs. Pollifax character was a delight and loved her. Listened to the series twice through I enjoyed it so much. The narrator was so good, I can't imagine that reading the books would have been nearly as enjoyable.

Gotta love the interesting characters you meet on an adventure with Mrs Pollifax! Suspense, danger and mystery keep you listening.
