    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 was 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.

    Jane says: "A beautiful series"

    If you could sum up The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling
    Captivating
    Humorous


    What other book might you compare The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection to and why?

    The other books in this series. Over the years I have developed a picture in my mind of the characters and setting of this expanding story. I have talked with people who have lived in Botswana and tell me that the story is very true of its people and places.


    What does Adjoa Andoh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the sound and sense of what I imagine this part of Botswana to be like. Her reading makes me feel the dust and smell the rain of Africa, even though I have never been there.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection and why?

    Mama Makutsi drives me nuts but she always makes me smile (even if she may not mean to). An honorary mention must be given to her shoes as well.


    Any additional comments?

    A must for the discerning listener.
