Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mrs. Pollifax is getting promoted, sort of. Her latest assignment is not her normal courier work. Instead, she has been booked at a luxury spa in Switzerland. Her assignment is to track down the plutonium that has been stolen from two plants recently and then shipped there. Almost enough has been stolen to make a small atomic bomb, so naturally Carstairs and the rest of the international intelligence community is worried.

Upon arriving, Mrs. Pollifax makes contact with her Interpol counterpart and begins to learn what she can about the guests. Robin Burke-Jones is clearly hiding something, but her attention is drawn to the young boy Hafez. Something is upsetting this 10-year-old. And no one ever sees his grandmother. Is he just a distraction? Where is the plutonium?

This absolutely delightful book is one of my three favorites in the series. What makes it for me are the characters. Of course, Mrs. Pollifax is her normal resourceful, charming self. But Robin and Hafez are just delights. The book is fairly predictable, and I was a step ahead of Mrs. Pollifax most of the time. But the pace is so fast that it never took long for me to catch up to her. And there are several heart stopping moments along the way.

This is like a small time machine back to 1973. You'll love every minute of it and wish it were longer.

I read my first Mrs Pollifax novel by accident when on holiday abroad I had read all the books I had with me and this was on the hotel bookshelf. It was so much fun that on returning home I immediately started ordering the others. It is rather dated but beautifully written and Mrs Pollifax is such an unusual heroine, I've thoroughly enjoyed them all.

I have recently been rereading all of Dorothy Gilman's Mrs. Pollifax books (some for the first time in over a decade) and have just finished "A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax," her fourth. I love all of the Pollifax books but, so far, this is by far the scariest! I have not found any other Pollifax book to be so full of terror and suspense. Quite often, it is difficult to determine just how she will get out of the many and varied scrapes in which she finds herself. Once again, an incredibly fun and quick read.

Mrs. Pollifax in Switzerland 26 Feb. 2003
By Karen Potts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There is some plutonium missing and Mr. Carstairs of the CIA decides that Mrs. Pollifax is the one to find it. He dispatches her to an upscale clinic in Switzerland, where he suspects the
contraband has been hidden. She begins a careful investigation of the guests at the clinic and soon befriends a young man and woman, and a young boy and his grandmother. She soon discovers that very few of them are who they claim to be and she becomes involved in intrigue with men who plan to overthrow the government of a small country. She, of course, displays the courage and ingenuity which Mr. Carstairs has learned to depend on, and she leads her outnumbered friends into the adventure of their lives. This is a delightful series.

Wonderful! Very highly recommended 18 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a huge fan of Dorothy Gilman's Mrs. Pollifax series (especially through and including Mrs. Pollifax on Safari -- although I still buy and read each one as soon as they're published). And this is a real winner. Very witty and entertaining. Although I usually give away mysteries after reading them, I can't bear to part with this series (through and including Mrs. Pollifax on Safari), and love rereading them over and over again. VERY highly recommended.

Five stars for the author. Needs a proofreader. 25 Jun. 2014
By Barbara Early - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This review is for the Kindle version.

I'm reading through this wonderful series, and was missing a paper version of this particular book, and was happy to find it in Kindle. Only it appears this was scanned in and not carefully read, in that it contains numerous errors consistent with incorrect character recognition: missing punctuation and similar looking words. (Things like a "chaise TONGUE" instead of a "chaise LOUNGE" and a reference to a "desk WHORE Hafez had been sitting") Some I was able to figure out. Others I still don't understand. Especially: "Really, I can't Gabrielle a nun?"

I was very happy to find this series available in ebooks, but wasn't there at least a good intern available to go through them? I'm now hesitant to buy more.

"A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax" I really liked the book but there were too many mistakes in the printing.... misspelled words which make reading very annoying.
