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.

Review:

"The author´s 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 haven't read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time." Anthony Daniels, Sunday Telegraph (U.K.)

Review:

"The most entertaining read of the year." The Guardian (U.K.)

Review:

"Thoroughly engaging and entertaining." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"What a treat...to discover [the] utterly charming No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series....The plots are good fun and make for quick, easy reads. But it's the books' warmth and simple wisdom that earn a reader's devotion. (Grade: A)" Karen Valby, Entertainment Weekly
