Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
A young American woman steps off a plane in Damascus and disappears, leading the CIA to believe she has been kidnapped and possibly murdered. Mrs. Pollifax poses as the woman's worried aunt and begins searching in Damascus and the desert. But she's shadowed by enemies whose agendas threaten not only Mrs. P, but the stability of the Middle East. 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 Pym₂s worried aunt, Mrs. Pollifax begins her determined search, slipping through Damascus₂s 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.
