Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi have always relied on the advice of the classic guide to their trade, The Principles of Private Detection. But who is the eminent author, Mr Clovis Andersen, and what if he were to come to Botswana? That seems a very unlikely possibility, and yet . . . When Mr Andersen visits Botswana on holiday, he is delighted and intrigued to stumble across a roadside sign that reveals the existence of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Professional courtesy suggests that he call and announce himself. Meanwhile, Mma Makutsi and Phuti Radiphuti are embarking on married life and building a new house - a tricky business under any circumstances but especially hazardous when the name of the contractor is the Joy and Light Building Company.

The Limpopo academy of private detection
This man, Alexander McCall smith, writes books that contain so many elements as to make a person happy. The constant references to simple pleasures and little gratitudes reminds me of what should be the hallmarks of happiness. I would like to thank him for his wisdom and for all the courtesy, consideration and love I find in reading this wonderful series.
I look forward to everyone of his novels.
