No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Written by Alexander McCall Smith | Narrated by Lisette Lecat
Inspired by Agatha Christie, cunning Precious opens the first — and only — female detective agency in Botswana. Follow as she investigates humorous, complex, and sometimes deadly cases in this “gem of a book” (Publishers Weekly). Performed with “authentic use of dialect and accents” (AudioFile) that helped win this audiobook an Earphones Award!

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

This remarkably fresh and charming best seller took the world by storm upon its publication. It has since earned two Booker Judges’ Special Recommendations and was voted one of the “International Books of the Year and the Millennium” by the Times Literary Supplement.

Mma “Precious” Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

Chosen as a Top Ten Mystery by the Organization of Independent Booksellers, U.S.A., The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is that rare novel that imparts a sage wisdom while inspiring hearty laughter and lasting smiles.
