Tears of the Giraffeby Alexander Mccall Smith
Synopses & Reviews
Precious Ramotswe is the eminently sensible and cunning proprietor of the only ladies' detective agency in Botswana. In Tears of the Giraffe she tracks a wayward wife, uncovers an unscrupulous maid, and searches for an American man who disappeared into the plains many years ago. In the midst of resolving uncertainties, pondering her impending marriage to a good, kind man, Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni, and the promotion of her talented secretary (a graduate of the Botswana Secretarial College, with a mark of 97 per cent), she also finds her family suddenly and unexpectedly increased by two.
The second in "The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series, which introduced Precious Ramotswe, sassy owner of Botswana's only detective agency, this title takes readers further into Precious' world. Among her cases this time are wayward wives, unscrupulous maids, and the challenge to resolve a mother's pain for her long-lost son.
Continuing the adventures of Botswana's detective, Precious Ramotswe. Follows on from the acclaimed "No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency".
