The Limpopo Academy Of Private Detection Synopsis

THE THIRTEENTH BOOK IN THE BELOVED NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY SERIES The one where Mma Ramotswe meets her hero . . . Mma Ramotswe, normally a peaceful sleeper, finds her slumbers disturbed by dreams of a tall stranger - but she is not quite ready to learn what this vision portends. Soon even Mma Makutsi has to admit that untoward things are occurring around the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency: at Speedy motors, Fanwell finds himself in trouble with the law, and the indomitable Mma Potokwani disappears from the orphan farm. Armed with courage, kindness and an instinct for the truth, Mma Ramotswe sets out to restore order . . .

The Limpopo Academy Of Private Detection Press Reviews

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 The gentle and telling portrait of the human condition lingers [after reading]. Star Tribune (Minneapolis) INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Does not disappoint.... Wonderful and addictive. -- newbooks Smith wisely doesn't tamper with his winning recipe for literary comfort food.... As always, the detection is secondary to Smith's continuing exploration of the rhythms and social dynamics of small-town African life. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) I love Mma Ramotswe more and more.... These books always leave me feeling more positive, more optimistic, more content.... Fans will find nothing disappointing here, other than the soft sigh as you turn the final page, knowing you must wait a little time again for the next installment! -- The Bookbag (UK) Praise for Alexander McCall Smith: 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 From the Hardcover edition.
