"When Emily Pollifax finds young Kadi in her hall closet, she's surprised. Soon the two are running for their lives. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat is at her best here, portraying the elderly, the young, and speakers of an obscure African language. With the help of the CIA, the women hide at a safe house, which happens to be a carnival in Maine. This locale gives Rosenblat the perfect setting for her wide range of accents and characterizations. Eventually, the group goes to Ubangiba in Africa, where they assist in solving a crime and observe a change of government. This delightful Pollifax mystery has the added bonus of being set mostly in the U.S. Old and new fans are in for a treat. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
