Dorothy Gilman's elderly spy from New Jersey has a new mission--to infiltrate a spa in Switzerland in connection with a stolen shipment of radioactive materials. All the turns of the plot unfold with just enough suspense to keep the listener interested. This is a good selection for the audio format, but Rosenblat's narration done in a slightly British accent, distances the text from the reader. She successfully differentiates each character and approximates foreign accents nicely; however, there is no excitement in the presentation. One never gets the feeling that Mrs. Pollifax comes from New Jersey. A more earthy, humorous narration might have given the story the vitality to rise above the ordinary.
