Publisher's Summary

Warm, humorous and uplifting, Alexander McCall Smith’s hugely popular novels featuring Precious Ramotswe, proprietor of Botswana’s only female private detective agency, have become international bestsellers, sold over seven million copies, and been translated into 26 languages. These acclaimed productions, complete with vibrant music, bring the exotic world of the books vividly to life.

The Daddy introduces us to Mma Ramotswe as she embarks on her first case and takes on a new secretary, the resourceful and talented Mma Makutsi. Together, they must find the truth about a Daddy who appears to have returned from the dead - as well as investigating a wayward teenage girl and attempting to find a vanished child.

The Bone sees the determined duo following Mr Patel’s daughter to find out whether she has a boyfriend. They must also solve the darker and more frightening case of the finger bone found in a car - does it belong to a missing boy snatched by a witch doctor?

Starring Claire Benedict as Mma Ramotswe and Nadine Marshall as Mma Makutsi, these dramatisations are guaranteed to appeal to all fans of the engaging lady detective.

Unique

These books dramatised on radio and now on audiobooks are a joy.The unique style, language and humour make them easy to listen to and made me laugh out loud in parts. Simple pleasure for easy listening.

Slow paced and predictable

I was looking for a mystery that would be good to listen to in the car and imagined that a dramatised audiobook would be suitable. However, I found the narration distracting and struggled to concentrate on the story. The novel as a whole is slow paced and I wasn't drawn into the plot and didn't care about the resolution. I'll be avoiding this series in the future.
