9780449149058: Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief

The assignment is a snap: Mrs. Pollifax just has to shoot some pictures at a quiet funeral outside Washington and take them to Sicily, where her old friend Farrell -- a former CIA agent turned art dealer -- anxiously awaits them.
But like all Mrs. P's assignments, so ostensibly suitable for the CIA's favorite garden club member, this one quickly turns lethal. Her welcoming committee in Palermo includes a most unlikely CIA agent and several unseen enemies. Unfriendly eyes also observe Mrs. P's rendezvous with Farrell in a secluded mountain village and weapons are soon displayed. With mysterious forces hot after them, she and Farrell scurry for safety to a fortified country villa, where the bizarre chatelaine, once a star on Madison Avenue, is almost as unnerving as the dangers she's protecting them from.
So, though the sun shines brightly, the food is delicious, and romance is in the air, Mrs. Pollifax is too busy handing out karate chops and playing catch-me-if-you-can with an assassin to enjoy the amenities . . . .
"Mrs. Pollifax gives Agatha Christie's Miss Marple a rival to reckon with." -- The Toronto Star

From the Publisher :

My grandmother is a big fan of the MRS. POLLIFAX mysteries by Dorothy Gilman. I was at first hesitant
to try the books, because I wasn't sure if I'd be able to relate to mysteries featuring a suburban grandmother
working for the CIA. But because my grandmother's taste in literature has always been impeccable,
I decided to delve into Mrs. Pollifax's adventures. I began with THE UNEXPECTED MRS. POLLIFAX, the first
in the series, and immediately found them delightful. Mrs. Pollifax is just the kind of grandmother I'd
love to have: resourceful, intelligent, somewhat sly, and, of course, a secret CIA operative. Her
adventures take her to all corners of the globe: from an authentically described communist China
(MRS. POLLIFAX ON THE CHINA STATION) to an exhilarating safari across Africa (MRS. POLLIFAX ON
SAFARI). I've thoroughly enjoyed joining her on her adventures, and intend to read them all. I recommend them
to everyone who's interested in learning about different countries and cultures--and, obviously, espionage!

--Malinda Lo, Editorial Assistant

Description du livre Random House USA Inc, United States, 1997. Paperback. État : New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Dorothy Gilman has charmed and delighted millions of readers worldwide with her portrayal of the witty and unpredictable Emily Pollifax - part-time CIA operative, full-time garden-clubbing grandmother from New Jersey. In this tenth mystery in the popular Mrs. Pollifax series, the inimitable and irrepressible Mrs. Pollifax finds herself in Sicily, dodging assassins bullets in another fast-paced and suspenseful adventure. When wealthy art collector Ambrose Vica invites CIA-spook-turned-art-dealer John Sebastian Farrell to Sicily, it s to find and authenticate a document bearing Julius Caesar s signature, presumably owned by a mysterious Mr. Raphael. Farrell doesn t hesitate to break into the Sicilian villa of Mr. Raphael - a man known for his exquisite taste in art, as well as his shady underground connections - to open his safe. But instead of finding Caesar s signature, Farrell discovers a mysterious list of names - and ends up taking a bullet to the ankle. Narrowly escaping capture, he hides out in a mountain village, where he sends an SOS to CIA headquarters requesting Mrs. Pollifax s help. With the aid of Kate Rossiter, a feisty young CIA agent who happens to be vacationing in the Sicilian countryside, Mrs. Pollifax and Farrell uncover the truth about the Caesar document. And in the process they become targets for a deadly cartel of professional killers. With Mrs. Pollifax and the Second Thief Dorothy Gilman has written another page-turning mystery filled with the intrigue, colorful characters, humor, and exotic locales that have made the Mrs. Pollifax series both a critical and commercial success.
