Then, with the success of her special courier-mission behind her—which Priscilla believes to have been a test

“I must admit that I am not a speed-reader when reading a good book or one that is hard to put down or anxious to pick up again. Special Envoy is that kind of book. The best part for me is the love story between PJ and Carlton. Also, I love the mystery and suspense. I am amazed at the author’s thought process in writing to such a degree, as the depth of the book clearly shows how much research was involved, not to mention the extensive travel. Whenever I read a sentence and recognize a name that is familiar because of its locality, I find myself smiling.” JUDY JORDAN, Salisbury, NC
“Apart from the aesthetic appeal of the classic edition, this book reads real. Throughout, Simms-Maddox exposes the vulnerability of the world’s nations threatened by the imminent collapse of global economies. One also gets that the face of terrorism is not that of a Middle Easterner and learns about Arab Islamic culture and real and meaningful Arabic names. The multi-layered plot illustrates the reality of what happens behind-the-scenes, off-camera, and often unreported.” ELINETTIE CHABWERA jointly with VIRGINIA PHIRI
