Review #50: The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency
The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is not your usual detective story. That’s because Mma Precious Ramotswe is not your usual detective—she is “the only lady private detective in Botswana”. And no, you need not be a fan of crime fiction or detective stories to enjoy this book.
Mma Ramotswe decided to set up a detective agency from the proceeds of her late Daddy’s cattle sales, and despite some initial hiccups, the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency does decent business. Mma Ramotswe’s methods might not be conventional, but you can’t say she doesn’t get results! Give this hilarious and heartwarming book—the first in the series—a miss and you’ll regret it for all your reading life.
