THE NINTH BOOK IN THE BELOVED NO. 1 LADIES’ DETECTIVE AGENCY SERIES

The one with the poison pen letter . . .


For the first time in her career as Botswana’s no. 1 lady detective, Mma Ramotswe suffers a blow to her faith in the goodness of humanity (and of her neighbours in particular) when she receives a threatening letter. But she does not let this swerve her from the sad plight of an orphan who hopes to find her true family.

Meanwhile, at Zebra Drive, Mma Ramotswe’s beloved husband Mr J. L. B. Matekoni is also searching for an expensive miracle for their own foster daughter Motholeli.

Reviews

The books possess a beguiling simplicity that is hard to convey without making them seem fey, when in fact they are direct, vivid and down-to-earth ... what he achieves in his No.1 Ladies
Detective Agency novels is the depiction in the lives of his main characters of a benign system of morality - derived by Mma Ramotswe from the old-fashioned ways of doing things’
DAILY TELEGRAPH
‘Nothing spoils [McCall Smith’s] vision of Botswana as a place where decent people triumph over mischief-makers’
SUNDAY TIMES
** 'The writing is as fluent and gracious as ever, and charmingly conveys the practical wisdom of much of African life’
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
