Summary
A warm-hearted, occasionally meddlesome widow from New Jersey, is hardly anyone's idea of a CIA operative - exactly why Emily Pollifax is so effective as a spy. Called upon to deliver eight expertly forged passports to the Bulgarian Underground, Mrs. Pollifax carries them in her hat, pretending to be a tourist visiting the scenic Balkans. Contact with the Underground might have been routine, but Mrs. Pollifax's habit of interfering - however benighnly - in the lives of others leads her into danger
