Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency published in 1998, introduced the world to the one and only Precious Ramotswe, the engaging and sassy owner of Botswana's only detective agency. Tears of the Giraffe took us further into this world, and now, continuing the adventures of Mma Ramotswe, Morality for Beautiful Girls, finds her expanding her business to take in the world of car repair and a beauty pageant.

Acclaim for The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency:

The authors prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision. His descriptions leave one as if standing in the Botswanan landscape. This is art that conceals art. I havent read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time. - Anthony Daniels, Sunday Telegraph

The most entertaining read of the year. -The Guardian

An African ' Miss Marple . . . superb. -Sunday Times

One of the International Books of the Year and the Millennium -Times Literary Supplement
