Mrs. Pollifax on SafariBook - 1977
“Mrs. Pollifax is the American cousin to Agatha Christie's Miss Marple.”—Toronto Star
Now the incredible Mrs. Pollifax has been sent on a safari to smoke out a very clever international assassin whose next target is the president of Zambia.
“Just take a lot of pictures of everyone on that safari,” the CIA man told her. “One of them has to be our man.”
It sounded simple enough. But it wasn't. Because shortly after Mrs. Pollifax started taking pictures, someone stole her film. And right after that she was kidnapped by Rhodesian terrorists. And right after that—well, read for yourself. . .
“Mrs. Pollifax is an enchantress.”—The New York Times
Baker & Taylor
At the request of her old CIA contact, Carstairs, Emily Pollifax leaves New Jersey and her geraniums for Africa, where she battles dark forces of evil to save an African leader from assassination

After fellow safari guest Cyrus Reed meets Mrs. Pollifax he invites her to lunch in the restaurant of the Intercontinental Hotel in Lusaka: "Then we'll order. I can recommend the chicken because I've had it every day since my arrival. Tirelessly, one might say." (p. 42) This is humorous for anyone familiar with Zambia in the 70s when there were "shortages" of many staple foods such as beef, pork and fish. The waiter would hand the menu with a long list of items ... but the guest would quickly find that only chicken was available!
