"What would summer be without a visit to Botswana and the private detective agency run by Precious Ramotswe? The point of these books . . . is not to uncover mysteries, at least not directly, but rather, discuss the vagaries of the human heart and what makes people tick." Ottawa Citizen
"Like clove oil on a bad tooth, McCall Smith's fiction acts on cynicism as an effective, old-fashioned balm." The Globe and Mail
Praise for The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series:
"Utterly charming and compulsively readable." Newsweek
"Smart and sassy…[with] the power to amuse or shock or touch the heart, sometimes all at once." Los Angeles Times

This time round Mma Romotswe has a couple of cases to exercise her skills. She has been contacted by an American attorney whose late client has left some money to someone in Botswana who was kind to her and the task is to track this person down. The other case concerns a couple who are known to Mma R, and who apparently each suspect the other of cheating.
I was fortunate to visit Botswana a few years ago, and this series does very much capture the pace of life and the general philosophical outlook of the populace which is considerably removed from what we are used to in the West. These are relatively short books and very easy to read. Most readers will quickly fall into the rhythm of these tales and will thoroughly enjoy them.
The stories are fairly simple. This is a character-driven series, not a plot-driven one. I look forward to each new book, not for the "mysteries" (which are lightweight and enjoyable), but for a chance to visit with old friends who warm my heart.
Maybe because I grew up in South Africa, I understand all the hidden fear for animals and the always available helping hands.
