About this book
The 8th in the phenomenally popular "No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series, set in Botswana. Tender, witty and wise, it instructs us, with familiar modesty, in the importance of trust, love, not judging by appearances and what really makes a good husband. An ITV adaptation of the series is due on screens in December 2007, and English language sales of McCall Smith's titles now exceed 10 million copies worldwide. He has also achieved extreme success with his "Sunday Philosophy Club" and "44 Scotland Street" series.
* The eighth instalment of Alexander McCall Smith's wonderful No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series
