The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection
More from the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
Precious Ramotswe is called in to tackle a disciplinary problem at a local school. Mysteries involving children are always rather difficult, and in this case, making this more complicated is the fact that it's her adopted daughter's school. Meanwhile, her trusted assistant, Grace Makutsi, is having trouble adjusting to wedded bliss, a problem that may test even Precious Ramotswe's formidable talents. Finally, Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi meet an old mentor for the first time, when the estimable Clovis Andersen, author of their personal manual, Principles of Private Investigation, arrives in Botswana on a case. All this and bush tea too--life is indeed rich in Botswana.
Praise for The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection and Alexander McCall Smith:
"Fans of the series will find much to enjoy.... It is all but impossible to criticise this novel." The Guardian
"To say McCall Smith is a literary phenomenon doesn't quite describe what has happened. He has become more of a movement, a worldwide club for the dissemination of gentle wisdom and good cheer." The Telegraph
"McCall Smith has few peers in capturing the quiet moments of people's lives, and his empathetic lead has one of the biggest hearts in modern literature." Publishers Weekly
