THE NO. 1 LADIES? DETECTIVE AGENCY - Book 12
Fans around the world adore the bestselling No. 1 Ladies? Detective Agency series, the basis of the HBO TV show, and its proprietor Precious Ramotswe, Botswana?s premier lady detective. In this charming series, Mma Ramotswe navigates her cases and her personal life with wisdom, and good humor?not to mention help from her loyal assistant, Grace Makutsi, and the occasional cup of tea.
At a remote cattle post south of Gaborone two cows have been killed, and Precious Ramotswe, Botswana?s No. 1 Lady Detective, is asked to investigate by a rather frightened and furtive gentleman. It is an intriguing problem with plenty of suspects?including, surprisingly, her own client.
To complicate matters, Mma Ramotswe is haunted by a vision of her dear old white van, and Grace Makutsi witnesses it as well. Is it the ghost of her old friend, or has it risen from the junkyard? In the meantime, one of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni?s apprentices may have gotten a girl pregnant and, under pressure to marry her, has run away. Naturally, it is up to Precious to help sort things out. Add to the mix Violet Sephotho?s newly launched run for the Botswana Parliament and a pair of perfect wedding shoes?will wedding bells finally ring for Phuti Radiphuti and Grace Makutsi??and we have a charming and delightful tale in the inimitable style of Alexander McCall Smith.

Description de la librairie : The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
