Publisher's Summary

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.

Another delightful instalment

I always enjoy the adventures of the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency - it's a shame that Audible do not have unabridged versions of all the novels. Adjoa Andoh does a superb job - I can't imagine the characters having any other voice but hers - not only the older female characters but the young men who have a way of jive talking that always makes me smile. The story this time was slightly ludicrous - it feels like there is a struggle for new ideas - but there is further development of the regular characters which is enjoyable and faithful to the characters have progressed so far.
