So much fun. And I'm trying to lower my currently reading count. ( )

This book was written in 1988, that makes it historical in nature without any research of the time.
If you never read any of the series or didn't catch it in the blurb, Mrs P is an over 60 widow who presented herself to the CIA in 1968 looking to be useful to them. She certainly has! She even met and married a retired judge and they had planned a vacation in Thailand when they were advised that another courier job needed doing in Thailand! Good tale, even going to people and places familiar to Dr Siri Paiboun. Enjoy the ride!

Voice actor Barbara Rosenblatt always does a wonderful job with all the voices and really acts out the story and not just read it. Her voice brings the characters to life with her inflections entirely suited the situations and characters. ( )

Cyrus and Emily go to Thailand for a personal vacation. Then, Bishop arrives and asks them to rearrange their schedule to pick up a package.

Love the series, characters and the location. ( )

Emily Reed-Pollifax occasionally works undercover for the Central Intelligence Agency. Shortly before departing for Thailand purely as a tourist, Mrs. Pollifax and her husband, Cyrus Reed, agree to deliver a small package in Chiang Mai and receive some concealed information in return. What the CIA promised would be a simple courier mission turns into high adventure when Mrs. Pollifax finds her supposed contact murdered, her husband kidnapped, and a Thai teak smuggler as her only ally. Through the jungles of Thailand, Mrs. Pollifax and her companion, Bonchoo, are both pursuer and pursued as they follow Cyrus 19 elusive trail. The opium trade, a Thai government coup, and the covert operations of both the CIA and the United States Drug Enforcement Agency all figure in the intrigue as Mrs. Pollifax struggles against all the odds to find her missing husband and survive a mission suddenly filled with danger.

Mrs. Pollifax is a delightful and unlikely undercover agent. She works her way with charm and efficiency in this fast-paced story of international intrigue whose ending is never anticipated by the reader. I love this series for some light, entertaining reading, filled with interesting characters. ( )

Still recovering from her traumatic experiences at the end of her previous adventure, in Mrs. Pollifax and the Hong Kong Buddha, our intrepid grandmotherly spy is looking forward to a trip to Thailand with husband Cyrus. It's to be a trip as a genuine tourist this time, until Bishop shows up and asks Mrs. P to do a simple job, picking up a letter in a town in northern Thailand. This being a Mrs. Pollifax adventure, not all goes as planned, and Cyrus is kidnapped. Hot in pursuit, our heroine treks through the rainforest with an unexpected ally, in the form of local teak smuggler Bonchoo. She visits a Akha village, sees a forgotten monastery, now inhabited by a Buddhist mystic, and meets an unpleasant American masquerading as a photojournalist. As always, all is not as it seems, but fortunately Mrs. Pollifax does find Cyrus in the end...

I've always enjoyed Mrs. Pollifax and the Golden Triangle, which is the eighth entry in the Mrs. Pollifax series, which I reread many times as an adolescent. The setting is fascinating, and as always, I found myself longing to visit the places the heroine does. The travelogue aspect of these books is one of their chief charms, as is the main character herself - a cozy grandmother in a distinctly non-cozy world. I appreciate the open and accepting way that Mrs. Pollifax approaches the wide world, her sense of wonder, at discovering new things. I don't know that these later books in the series are as amusing as prior ones - the first three are the most hilarious, in my view - but they are engaging. This one is the last that I tended to reread, when younger. The subsequent six titles have been read once, but never revisited, and I'm debating whether I'll reread them now, during this pandemic comfort reading project. Perhaps so, perhaps not. In any case, this is one I'd recommend to readers who have enjoyed previous entries in the series. ( )
