The elderly investigator assists a young man who is about to be crowned king of an African country.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Gilman has a fiercely loyal following, so this latest entry in her highly popular Mrs. Pollifax series is sure to be a hit. Emily Pollifax, the intrepid undercover agent, is off to Africa with newfound friend Kadi Hopkirk, the daughter of martyred African missionaries. Kadi's lifelong friend Sammat is in line to become king of Ubangiba, the country where Kadi's parents were murdered in the dangerous days before a series of political coups brought young Sammat to power. But Sammat has run into serious problems, and it looks as if he may not be crowned king after all. A trio of brutal murders where the victims are supposedly clawed to death by a lion has generated rumors that Sammat is an evil sorcerer who's somehow causing the deaths. With the Ubangiban people terrified and suspicious, Sammat begs Kadi to come back to Africa to provide moral support, and naturally, Mrs. Pollifax goes along to see if she can help put Sammat's enemies behind bars. Silly enemies--don't they know that no one can outwit Mrs. Pollifax? Emily Melton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
