ALEXANDER McCALL SMITH has a double existence. He is a Professor of Medical Law, but also an author who has now written over fifty books on a wide range of subjects. His collection of African stories, CHILDREN OF WAX, received critical acclaim and has been the subject of an award-winning film.


Mr. Buthelezi threatens Mma "Precious" Ramotswe's status as the only detective in Botswana when he opens the Satisfaction Guaranteed Detective Agency in this fourth title of "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series. Her wisdom and common sense help solve both the cases of one of Mr. Buthelezi's dissatisfied customers and one involving her assistant, Mma Grace Makutsi, whose ingenuity drives the opening of the Kalahari Typing School for Men. Lisette Lecat's clearly understood accent adds ambience to this sure-to-be-popular recording. Highly recommended.-Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., OR Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

'Mma Ramotswe's methods - and her results - are as unusual as the novels they inhabit ... All this activity is much less about whodunnit than why' NEW YORK TIMES 'McCall Smith is a careful, emblematic writer who is beyond gifted, he is a natural storyteller. McCall Smith has once again charmed the sarongs off us' THE LIST
