  • The books possess a beguiling simplicity that is hard to convey without making them seem fey, when in fact they are direct, vivid and down-to-earth ... what he achieves in his No.1 Ladies - Detective Agency novels is the depiction in the lives of his main characters of a benign system of morality - derived by Mma Ramotswe from the old-fashioned ways of doing things

  • DAILY TELEGRAPH - Nothing spoils [McCall Smith s] vision of Botswana as a place where decent people triumph over mischief-makers

  • SUNDAY TIMES - ** 'The writing is as fluent and gracious as ever, and charmingly conveys the practical wisdom of much of African life
