The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection: Alexander McCall Smith is Back!
By The Indextrious Reader on June 08, 2012
Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutski are back in the latest installment from the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency just in time for summer! The series from Alexander McCall Smith is much beloved by readers everywhere and I've heard great things about this addition. Just reading Melanie's review made me want to make a good cup of tea and take an armchair trip to Botswana. - Karen
Once again, a great entry into the series by McCall Smith. His trademark observations about human nature abound, as well as descriptions of the magnificence of the Botswana landscape. There is one scene in which Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are stranded by the side of a road in the bush, and it manages to be funny, yet with a hint of terror regarding wildlife, and to show both the grandeur of Botswana and the power of human caring as the women are rescued by a local farmer.
