Review: Tears of the Giraffe

5 out of 5 stars
This is the second in the series 'No 1 Ladies Detective Agency' and follows the antics of Mma Ramotswe in her detective agency in Bostwana. Like the first in the series it is entertaining and a real delight to read. McCall Smith clearly understands the spirit of Africa and his writing draws the reader into a country that is simple, delightful and full of beauty. He communicates the essence of Botswanan life in a tone that is gentle and refreshing, yet somehow challenging and thoughtprovoking. I can't wait to read the next two in the series.
