After facing down hijackers on a flight to the Middle East and saving the lives of the passengers on board, a young American woman steps off the plane in Damascus in a blaze of celebrity and disappears. The CIA believes Amanda Pym was kidnapped, possibly murdered.

Masquerading as Amanda Pym’s worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax begins her determined search, slipping through Damascus’s crooked streets and crowded souks . . . and trekking deep into the desert. Yet she is shadowed by deadly enemies, whose sinister agenda threatens not only Mrs. P. but the fragile stability of the entire Middle East. Only a miracle–or a brilliant counterplot– can forestall a disaster that will send shock waves around the world.

Baker & Taylor
Seven weeks after facing down a group of terrorists aboard a flight to the Middle East, Amanda Pym has disappeared in Syria, and her aunt Mrs. Pollifax heads to Damascus to find the missing girl.

Glad to read about another Mrs. Pollifax enthusiast. Her FINAL novel, though not a Mrs. Pollifax, was Kaleidoscope. It was a follow up to the Clairvoyant Countess. No, its not "whoo whoo". It's about a Countess who puts all of her experiences together and saves a kidnapped woman and prevents a takeover.

Maze in the Heart of the Castle, one of her children's books, is now worth over $100.00.

I miss her and all of her many books even those non series books. Try them all!

A delightful final novel in the Mrs. Pollifax series, Mrs. Pollifax Unveiled leaves the reader wanting more, both from the titular and the supporting characters. Unfortunately, health problems prevented Dorothy Gilman from publishing any more, and she died in 2012. She started writing as a successful children's author, switching mid-career to mystery novels featuring the 60-something Mrs. Pollifax as an unlikely heroine in a genre filled with nubile sleuths half her age. While the plots sometimes rely too heavily on coincidence, the books are fun and imaginative. Brava, Dorothy! Brava, Mrs. Pollifax!
