Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi have always relied on the advice of the classic guide to their trade, The Principles of Private Detection. But who is the eminent author, Mr Clovis Andersen, and what if he was to come to Botswana? That seems a very unlikely possibility, and yet... When Mr Andersen visits Botswana on holiday, he is delighted and intrigued to stumble across a roadside sign that reveals the existence of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Professional courtesy suggests that he call and announce himself. Meanwhile, Mma Makutsi and Phuti Radiphuti are embarking on married life and building a new house - a tricky business under any circumstances but especially hazardous when the name of the contractor is the Joy and Light Building Company.

"Tolerance and humanity underpin the whole of this wonderful, hilarious, totally addictive series." (Daily Mail)
"warm and smiley"
Just kick back, relax and follow these characters in their naive, innocent but altogether enjoyable escapades. Coming across as polite and kind people you surely ask how could these decent folk survive in the real world never mind running businesses such as Speedy Motors and Limpopo Private Detective Agency not to mention The Right Way Up Building Merchants. The kind of light listen perfect for a Sunday afternoon, as I said....just get yourself comfortable
This is the latest of his audio books I have listened to and I managed to finish it in 1 day.
