Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency introduced the world to the one and only Precious Ramotswe -the engaging and sassy owner of Botswanas only detective agency. In Tears of the Giraffe Mma Ramotswe faces a new challenge: resolving a mothers pain for her son who is long lost on the African plains. Mma Ramotswes own impending marriage to the most gentlemanly of men, Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, the promotion of Mmas secretary to the dizzy heights of Assistant Detective, and the arrival of new members to the Matekoni family, all brew up the most humorous and charmingly entertaining of tales.

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
