Mimsy R edited the summary of The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency Sunday, December 12, 2010.
Mma Precious Ramotswe moves to Gabarone to open a detective agency. She has a reference book, some money her father left her and a great deal of good sense. She approaches each case with a sense of zest and flair that most other detectives do not bring. This is not a shadowy, dark noir detective agency. Mma Ramotswe solves her cases with her wits and sense. She finds friends, love and joy in her work and her life.The descriptions of Botswana are fantastic and it is obvious that the characters as well as the author have a deep abiding love for the place.
