Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

"The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mysteries remain his best-written and most consistently satisfying works. The Double Comfort Safari Club gives readers a chance to check in on the more compassionate, reflective world of the house on Zebra Drive."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"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:
"Beautiful in spirit…. Botswana and its way of life are described in exquisite detail…delightful…positively uplifting."
Winston-Salem Journal

"Utterly charming and compulsively readable."
Newsweek

"Endearing, amusing…sparkles with African sunshine and…wit."
Dallas Morning News

"Smart and sassy…[with] the power to amuse or shock or touch the heart, sometimes all at once."
Los Angeles Times

"McCall Smith's simple, sweet descriptions of everyday pleasures — a cup of tea, walking around one's garden — are enticing."
Boston Globe

"There is no end to the pleasure that may be extracted from these books."
The New York Times Book Review

"Put on the teakettle, find your place in the sun and settle in for a genteel journey."
Rocky Mountain News

"Four Stars…. Full of the quiet humor and ingratiating charm we've come to expect."
People

"Each book is a small miracle in its self."
The Times Picayune

"Witty, charming and a delight…wonderfully entertaining."
Tucson Citizen
