Mystery & Suspense • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1983

When Emily Pollifax reached her 60s, she became bored with her garden club (despite her talent for growing geraniums), with volunteer work, and with life in general. Seeking adventure, she became a CIA spy with a brown belt in karate. Now on perilous assignment to the People's Republic of China, posing as a tourist, she's expected to find and help rescue a labor camp inmate. Barbara Rosenblat moves the plot slowly and effortlessly into another culture, sipping LuChar, traveling the Silk Road, past the Terracota Army of Qin Shihuang, past Kazac horsemen, and down the cliffs of Sichuan. Rosenblat's Chinese sounds convincing. Romance adds considerable pizzazz to this entrancing story of survival. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
