The Double Comfort Safari Club: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency | [Alexander McCall Smith]

The Double Comfort Safari Club: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Alexander McCall Smith’s internationally best-selling and award-winning series starring Botswana’s leading lady detective continues with this 11th charming tale. Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi travel to the Okavango Delta to visit a safari lodge beset by unexplained events. There they are awestruck by the breathtaking scenery, but also troubled by the region’s many difficulties—not the least of which is the occasional grumpy hippopotamus.

Publisher's Summary

Listeners will agree that this touching and dramatic new installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved and best-selling series is the finest yet. In this story, Precious Ramotswe deals with issues of mistaken identity and great fortune against the beautiful backdrop of Botswana’s remote and striking Okavango Delta.

Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi head to a safari camp to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest who has left one of the guides a large sum of money. But once they find their man, Precious begins to sense that something is not right. To make matters worse, shortly before their departure, Mma Makutsi’s fiancé, Phuti Radiphuti, suffers a debilitating accident, and when his aunt moves in to take care of him, she also pushes Mma Makutsi out of the picture. Could she be trying to break up the relationship?

Finally, a local priest and his wife independently approach Mma Ramotswe with concerns of infidelity, creating a rather unusual and tricky situation. Nevertheless, Precious is confident that with a little patience, kindness and good sense things will work out for the best - something that will delight her many fans.

    "No Detective"

    I guess A.M. Smith has run out of detective ideas to put into his books. This one is just a series of long slow exchanges between the female characters. They never actually do much of anything in the entire book. Very disappointing as I enjoyed the earlier books in this series very much.

    "I Love Mma. Ramotswy"

    I love this series of books. I love it I love it I love it. Nothing much ever happens, but you can't help from being drawn into this lovely world. These books are like the literary version of comfort food.

    "Worst book ever"

    Reached the end of the book and was still waiting for some mystery to develop. Needless to say, it never did.
