When Monsieur Pamplemousse is summoned into the head office of Le Guide by the director, Henri Leclercq, he is unaware of the chaos that is about to erupt. Accompanied by his faithful bloodhound, Pommes Frites, Pamplemousse attempts to solve Leclercq’s plaintive conundrums - all of which relate back to his mobster uncle-in-law. The crime-solving duo gallivant around Paris and become tangled up in seemingly arbitrary problems; a letter about a juicy steak horrifyingly turned into a brisket; a dead restaurant owner; a giant truffle delivered by post and the imminent arrival of the vivacious Caterina, the mobster’s niece. With all these obstacles at hand, Pamplemousse attempts to unravel each dilemma but it quickly proves impossible as they overlap and tangle at every turn. As he battles with this confounding case, it becomes apparent that these events are much more sinister and inextricably linked than first thought . . .

The fifth in Bond's series about Aristide Pamplemousse, France's premier gourmet guide, begins with a mission right up his allee. Once more, however, a fairly simple task grows into an escapade for M. Pamplemousse and Pommes Frites, his smart little dog. They are driving to Port St. Augustin where Aristide is to advise on epicurean treats offered VIPs on a dirigible flying from France to England, reaffirming the entente cordiale signed by the two nations in 1904. Nothing must fail, but M. Pamplemousse senses threats to the great occasion even before arriving in the seacoast town. A group of oddly behaving nuns; a near-fatal fall by Yasmin, the trapeze artist at the local circus; the snubbing from Aristide's old friend, a British detective; and other events plant suspicions that turn the gastronome into his former self as inspector of police in Paris. The funny, exciting mystery will delight readers who may weep with envy of the feasts that are ordinary fare for M. Pamplemousse and Pommes Frites.

According to the Director of Le Guide, France's premier gastronomic companion, it is high time his inspectors moved with the times and opened their ranks to the fairer sex. And who better to oversee their initiation than Monsieur Pamplemousse? However, when the Director, normally a model of rectitude, hints that on no account must the trainee be allowed to make the grade, Monsieur Pamplemousse is suitably outraged. His indignation lasts only until he hears her name. The Director is right. The lady in question is known to be utterly unscrupulous in the use of her considerable physical charms and her permanent engagement would cause unrest among the other inspectors, not to mention unhappiness amongst their wives. But there are other problems. Having blackmailed the Director into taking her on, why is she so insistent on staying at the Hôtel des Dunes; an out-of-the-way establishment in the Gironde, unremarked even by the Camping Club of France, let alone by any of the major guides? Certainly not because of the food, as Monsieur Pamplemousse dejectedly discovers. And why, having created a scene because she didn't get the room she wanted, should one of her first acts be to photograph the dismal interior of the hotel? When Monsieur Pamplemousse's ever-faithful bloodhound Pommes Frites is seen ambling back to the hotel carrying a suspiciously large jambon, Monsieur Pamplemousse realises once again he must stand firm against the forces of crime... A delightful comic romp amongst the sand dunes of France's Côte d'Argent , Monsieur Pamplemousse Stands Firm features Michael Bond's inimitable creations Monsieur Pamplemousse and his indefatigable canine assistant Pommes Frites.

Called to a Provençal film set to vouch for the gastronomic authenticity of direct Von Strudel's latest Biblical advertising extravaganza (what was on the menu at the Last Supper?) restaurant inspector Monsieur Pamplemousse is surprised to find his sleuthing skills, acquired during a stint at the Sûreté, considerably more in demand. Exploding strawberries, adulterated cast food and sundy other mysterious occurences all point to a saboteur or, at best, an infuriating prankster on set. But when the star of the sequence of perfume adverts, Brother Angelo, a heavy-metal heart-throb who has been cast against type as Jesus Christ, seemingly vanishes into thin air, it is clear matters have gone beyond a joke. Hot on the scent of Brother Angelo, Monsieur Pamplemousse and his faithful hound Pommes Frites must treat some of the stoniest and most unexpected by-ways of sun-soaked Provence, a trail that tests to its limits even Pamplemousse and Pommes Frites combined powers of detection and intuition.

When Le Directeur suggests Le Guide's food inspector Monsieur Pamplemousse take a brief jaunt to sample the gastronomy of Rome, Pamplemousse knows the offer is too good to be true. But when the only string attached seems to be that on the return journey he escourt the Director's schoolgirl niece Caterina from her Rome convent school to her uncle's Paris home, Monsieur Pamplemousse begins to relax. Until, that is, he sees the schoolgirl in question ... and spots her every-present shadow, an Al Capone-lookalike whose hostility Pamplemousse senses even across a crowded restaurant car. However, it is when the Rome-Paris Express pulls into Gare de Lyon and his charge apparently disappears into thin air that Pamplemousse really begins to worry. Especially when he discovers the lustrous Caterina is the daughter of one of Sicily's most powerful mafiosi, a man who will not take the loss of his cherished daughter at all kindly...
