Read full description of the books A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax: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. Well, one other spy. A waiter named Marcel.
Her mission: to track down a missing package of plutonium. Enough to make a small atomic bomb.
It was a job that suited Mrs. Pollifax's talents. She was good with people -- and good 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....
Read information about the authorDorothy Gilman started writing when she was 9. At 11, she competed against 10 to 16-year-olds in a story contest and won first place. Dorothy worked as an art teacher and telephone operator before becoming an author. She wrote children’s stories for more than ten years under the name Dorothy Gilman Butters and then began writing adult novels about Mrs. Pollifax–a retired grandmother who becomes a CIA agent. The Mrs. Pollifax series made Dorothy famous. While her stories nourish people’s thirst for adventure and mystery, Dorothy knew about nourishing the body as well. She used to live on a farm in Nova Scotia, where she grew medicinal herbs. Her knowledge of herbs comes through in many of her stories, including A Nun in the Closet, in which a nun treats a man’s wounds with the herbs growing nearby. Many of Dorothy’s books, including Caravan, feature strong women having adventures around the world. Dorothy spent much of her life in Connecticut and Maine. She died at age 88 of complications of Alzheimer's disease.
