The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

28 Sep

Precious Ramotswe takes the money she received after her father’s death to open the only detective agency run by a woman in Botswana. Cracking case by case, we grow to learn about Mma Ramotswe, her father and their history along with Botswana’s.

A cozy feeling mystery, no real violence and not any murders. The author provides little puzzles to figure out along the way. The infectious prose does not shy away from commentary on the United States, United Kingdom, and Botswana versus other African Countries. #1 in Precious Ramotswe series. 2002, 235 pages.
