Limited to only 1,200 copies, this beautifully crafted book contains two-colour illustrations throughout and comes in a sumptuous hardback slip case taking McCall Smith s best-selling novel to new heights of reading. Numbered and signed by both the author and illustrator. Precious Ramotswe, a cheerful woman of traditional build, is the founder of Botswana s first and only ladies detective agency. Here is a gentle interpretation of the detective role: solving her cases through her innate wisdom and understanding of human nature, she helps people with problems in their lives . With a tone that is as elegant as that which is unfailingly used by his protagonist, Alexander McCall Smith tenderly unfolds a picture of life in Gaborone with a mastery of comic understatement and an evident sympathy for his subjects and their milieu. In the background of all this is Botswana, a country of vast landscapes and echoing skies, one so beautiful and entrancing that it breaks the heart. Mma Ramotswe has prepared the red bush tea and is waiting for you to join her. She has much to tell you.

Review:

The No. 1 Ladies (Detective Agency')

novels transfer exceptionally well to audio, thanks to Adjoa Andoh's lively, richly humorous narration (The TIMES)

The author's prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision. (Anthony Daniels, Sunday TELEGRAPH)

Everything about [McCall Smith] is appealing. He's just full of delight - it just bubbles out of him (Sunday HERALD)
