Alexander McCall Smith's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the appeal of endearing protagonist Precious Ramotswe and the author's charmingly quirky prose. In this 13th installment, Mma Ramotswe's attention is focused on a pesky disciplinary problem at her adopted daughter's school-while Grace Makutsi adjusts to wedded bliss and the famed Clovis Andersen arrives in Botswana looking for more than bush tea.

"In this episode of Alexander McCall Smith's popular series, there's much going on. The orphan farm is in danger of losing a cherished routine. One of J.L.B. Matekoni's apprentices is in trouble with the law. And Clovis Andersen, the American author of "The Principles of Private Detection" (the "bible" of the gentle ladies of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency), makes a surprise visit. Speaking beautifully fluid Botswanian-accented English, Lisette Lecat offers an energetic, wiry Grace Makutsi, a "traditionally built" Precious Ramotswe, and a substantial Phuti Radiphuti, Grace's new husband. Lecat narrates all the books in the series, so start at the beginning to fully enjoy an agreeable group of people with whom one would enjoy a cup of bush tea. S.J.H.
