In a time when it seems all the rage to create scarcely-sympathetic characters, the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series is like breathing clean air. Plot seems to hardly matter in the series, though without one we would not be the fortunate recipients of Precious Ramotswe's gentle and traditional wisdom. In Tears of the Giraffe Mma Ramotswe solves, among others, the mystery of what happened to a young American who disappeared in Botswana years ago, and as always, the gracious repercussions of her work touch and unite numerous people. Mma Ramotswe's household increases by two, a surprise to her: one of the two is not Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, to whom she is engaged to be married.

There is suspense and the habitation of a country and culture far away, there are lessons of morality that are not moralistic, there are deeply three-dimensional characters living in these pages, and humor and surprise and relief. An excellent read.
