Mma Ramotswe, founder of the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency, has problems. New clients are thin on the ground, her loveable but elusive fiance Mr J.L.B. Matekoni is suffering a deep depression, her secretary Mma Makutsi is restless - and a new, rival, detective agency has set up shop on her doorstep. To save rent-money, and keep an eye on Mr J.L.B. Matekoni's recalcitrant apprentices she moves the Detective Agency into the Speedy Motors office. It works well. Mma Makutsi discovers an unexpected talent as a motor mechanic! But she's still fidgety, and feels 'under-exploited'; until she's struck by a brilliant idea. Secretarial work is important, and skilled. So why don't men do it? (Because no-one teaches them to type!) Immediately Mma Makutsi sets up The Kalahari Typing-school for Men. Bingo! Like all her good ideas it works superbly - though not without certain disillusionments ... Welcome back, Mma Ramotswe and her team. Long may the sun shine on all who live in the pages of this delectable series. (Kirkus UK)
