L. B. Matekoni. At the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency there are the usual number of cases to be pursued, from persistent theft at Teenie Magama's printing works to the rather more serious case of three suspicious deaths at the Mochudi hospital, but there is discontent among the ranks. It is bad enough that Mr Matekoni's apprentice Charlie is off on another escapade and Mma Makutsi's impending marriage threatens her happy working relationship with Mma Ramotswe. And when - in trying to prove himself a worthy husband - Mr J. L. B. Matekoni himself decides to try a little detective work, disaster looms ...Tender, witty and wise, the latest instalment in the lives of Alexander McCall's Smith's extended Botswana family instructs us with familiar modesty in the importance of trust, love, not judging by appearances and what really makes a good husband.Hide synopsis

The writing style of Alexander McCall Smith makes you feel like you know the charactors. While a storyline about a private detective would seem as if it fit into the mystery catagory, the different cases are usually about a specific type of human relationships and frailty.

Really fun books to read. Not to long in length but, easy to keep interest. Having never been to Africa, it took a while to get used to the names of the people and the locations the events took place. I do recomend it to my friends.
