The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax was first published in 1966.
First in the series. Mrs. Virgil (Emily) Pollifax of New Brunswick, New Jersey, was a widow with grown, married children. She was tired of attending her garden club meetings. She wanted to do something for her country. So, naturally, she became a CIA agent. She takes on a ‘job’ in Mexico City. The assignment doesn’t sound dangerous at first, but then, as often happens, something goes wrong. Now our dear Mrs. Pollifax finds herself embroiled in quite a cold war – – and her country’s enemies find themselves entangled with one unbelievably feisty lady.
