The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection, Paperback Book
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi have always relied on the advice of the classic guide to their trade, The Principles of Private Detection.

But who is the eminent author, Mr Clovis Andersen, and what if he were to come to Botswana?

That seems a very unlikely possibility, and yet ...When Mr Andersen visits Botswana on holiday, he is delighted and intrigued to stumble across a roadside sign that reveals the existence of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency.

Professional courtesy suggests that he call and announce himself.

Meanwhile, Mma Makutsi and Phuti Radiphuti are embarking on married life and building a new house - a tricky business under any circumstances but especially hazardous when the name of the contractor is the Joy and Light Building Company.

Review by

A Ma Ramotswe book. One of the best ones in the series: Mma Potokwani sacked, Grace and Phuti have a house built, Fanwell arrested, Clovis Andersen appears. The Limpopo Academy is an idea Grace has right at the end of the novel.

Also in the The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series   |  View all
