Along the way, Mma Ramotswe is asked to investigate a couple of tricky cases. Will she be able to explain an unexpected series of deaths at the hospital in Mochudi? And what about the missing office supplies at a local printing company? These are the types of questions that she is uniquely well suited to answer.
In the end, whatever happens, Mma Ramotswe knows she can count on Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, who stands for all that is solid and true in a shifting world. And there is always her love for Botswana, a country of which she is justifiably proud.
"Scotsman McCall Smith's best-selling novels featuring 'traditionally built' Botswana sleuth Precious Ramotswe continue to resonate with poignancy, wisdom, and wit." (Booklist)

#1 Ladies continued enjoyment
Another great title in the #1 Ladies series! I found all the titles in this series so far easy to listen too. Smooth discriptive narative,good character flow - what started as a light summer gamble with book #1; has turned into a many book listen. Even bought some "bush tea" to try with this one!

Savor this delicious series
I love this series by Alexander McCall Smith, which starts with the book "The Number One Ladies Detective Agency". While I find myself listening to fast paced political thrillers, humor, sci fi, and all kinds of mysteries, this series has a category all of its own. It might generally fit into the mystery category but it is definitely not your typical mystery. I recommend starting with the first book and working your way up to this book so you don't miss a thing. The stories take place in Botswana and involve no more than a total of 30 or 40 characters (in all 8 books in the series). Characters all have their quirky personalities, fears, memories of the past, love of their country, and interesting outlooks on life. In each book, the detective agency will solve 2 or 3 cases, ranging from a lost boy to a series of unexplained deaths in a rural hospital. In each case, Ma Ramotswe and her assistant Ma Makutzi offer an interesting approach to each problem, full of humor and enjoyment of life.
This delicious series is to be savored.
