"Mrs. Pollifax gives Agatha Christie's Miss Marple a rival to reckon with."
TORONTO STAR
A secret agent like no other, Mrs. Pollifax was leading a very full life: Garden Club, karate, yoga--and a little spying now and then. This time the mysterious Mr. Carstairs sent her to Switzerland--to a famous health resort where the world's intelligence agents had gathered. Her mission: to track down a missing package of plutonium--just enough to make a small atomic bomb. It was a job that suited Mrs. Pollifax's talents. She's good with people and even better at sniffing out their secrets. But it was not until she became enchanted with Robin, the young jewel thief, that her new adventure really began....

There's no need to recap the story as the publisher's blurb gives adequate hints. I find any of this series to be a look into a different time, one without sat phones or laptops to make investigation and communication easy. While the countries and politics are different, they are also much the same. Mrs. Pollifax is a singular woman, over 60, very good at logic, and possessed of that rarity: common sense. Each of the characters is definitely believable. This is a reread for me.

I really like this series for light reading. As a child of the Cold War era, i find it interesting to go back to those days. This book was particularly enjoyable due to the atomic bomb intrigue in the plot. I already bought the next one and plan to read it soon. Stephanie Clanahan
