The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency

by Alexander McCall Smith

This is the first book of the widely acclaimed series featuring Botswana’s Precious Ramotswe and her tiny detective service. Although it is not technically an historical mystery, to us it seems timeless and has value in its presentation of a slow paced, dignified side of African life that is often overlooked. Precious’ rare combination of refinement and ingenuity more than once helps her solve problems both big and small. Her understanding of certain situations as a female of a certain age holds her in good stead as well.
