Ex-CID. Ex-New York. Ex-cellent' reads the sign outside the Satisfaction Guarantee Detective Agency. Cephas Buthelezi certainly talks the talk, Precious discovers, but would he have the wherewithal to deal with her current case - a man who has been attacked by ostrich rustlers, and is eager to reassess his life? Meanwhile, there are difficulties at the Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where one of the apprentices has discovered the Lord, problems at home with the mysterious death of a hoopoe, and romantic complications when Mma Makutsi sets up a typing school for men . . .

Die Romane dieser Reihe werden in 42 Ländern veröffentlicht.

Smith,A.M.:Kalahari Typing School f.Men
I loved reading about Precious Ramotswe and her detective agency ! Alexander McCall Smith spins a wonderfully gentle tale spiced with an enormous amount of humour. I got the first novel of this series from a friend, after my first trip to botswana, and now I've read them all. An unusual setting, good story line, no unnecessary violence, wonderful believable characters and a bit of typical african lifestyle. I can not wait to read more about the " traditionally built " lady and the wonderful landscape.
