- 10+ in stock
Wayward daughters. Missing Husbands. Philandering partners. Curious conmen. If you've got a problem, and no one else can help you, then pay a visit to Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's only - and finest - female private detective.
The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency introduced the world to the one and only Precious Ramotswe - the engaging and sassy owner of Botswana's only detective agency.
Tears of the Giraffe, McCall Smith's second book, takes us further into this world as we follow Mma Ramotswe into more daring situations. Among her cases this time are errant wives, unscrupulous maids, and the challenge to resolve a mother's anguish for her son who is long-lost on the African plains.
Indeed, Mma Ramotswe's own impending marriage to the most gentlemanly of men, Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, the promotion of Mma's secretary to the dizzy heights of Assistant Detective and the arrival of new members to the Matekoni family, all brew up the most humorous and charmingly entertaining of tales.
Chosen as one of The Guardian's Top Ten Fiction Paperbacks of the Year in 2000, Tears of the Giraffe is a glorious, life-affirming read in one of the best-selling detective series of all time.
