I just started a reread of the 11th book in an old favorite series. I'm reading Mrs. Pollifax Pursued by Dorothy Gilman.
For those who aren't familiar with the series, Mrs. Pollifax is a grandmother, widow, garden club member...and part time CIA agent. Her boss at the CIA is Carstairs, so you might guess just how much I love this series.
Here's now the book begins:
Henry Bidwell was rich, but this was of little consequence to him since he had always been rich.
Jumping ahead of page 56:
"Could we go back?" Kadi asked eagerly. "Could we rescue him?"
Mrs. Pollifax shook her head. "You've become dangerous to them, Kadi, presumably because you're a friend of Sammy's."
It's probably been close to 20 years since I read this book, so I don't really remember much of the plot. I'm not much further than the 56, but so far I'm really enjoying it again.
