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
Alexander McCall Smith again provides me with a book I can safely lose myself. The gentleness of the main characters are in direct contrast to the harsh environment they live in but there is never a complaint about their beloved country. The writing is so good I can feel the heat of their African sun. When I buy a book in this series I know what to expect but am never disappointed.
When is the next one due, please?
