A Palm For Mrs Pollifax Paperback / softback

Part of the A Mrs Pollifax Mystery series

Paperback / softback


"If you make it across the border, get us help. Some of us care. Do you understand? ... The arrests grow insane."At the very hour this message is en route to the CIA, Mrs Pollifax is waiting for her night-blooming cereus flower to do its thing.

She hardly gets to see its flowers, though, before being whisked off for another daring mission halfway across the world. Soon she is sporting a beautiful new hat - perfect for hiding eight forged passports. Armed with only an open mind and a little karate, Mrs Pollifax is the most unlikely and lovable of international spies. What readers are saying:"Love, love, love Mrs Pollifax.

Ms Gilman has an extraordinary way of keeping you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages of her books." "How can a sweet little old lady get into so much trouble?

Mrs Pollifax is a gem and a hoot!""A book that gives you a big smile on every page.

I'm looking forward to my next Mrs Pollifax adventure.""Who wouldn't fall in love with a senior citizen who wears absurd hats, pushes the book cart at the hospital, and knows karate?""I first read the Mrs Pollifax books when I was a little girl and I keep coming back to read the books again and again.""Read it, it's the best thing you can do for yourself.

It's like a reminder of the zest for life." Editorial reviews: "Mrs Pollifax is an enchantress." New York Times"Mrs Pollifax gives Agatha Christie's Miss Marple a rival to reckon with." Toronto Star"Filled with adventures-and misadventures-but through it all Mrs Pollifax is triumphant." Booklist"Absorbing and worthwhile ...

Publishers Weekly"Should delight you whether you're looking for smiles or thrills." New York Times Book Review"All's right with the world as long as Mrs Pollifax is part of it." Mobile Register
