on Tuesday June 7th at 6pm in the Vermont Room at Maclure Library

The No.1 Ladies´ Detective Agency, located in Gaborone, Botswana, consists of one woman, the engaging Precious Ramotswe.

A cross between Kinsey Millhone and Miss Marple, this unlikely heroine specializes in missing husbands, wayward daughters, con men and imposters.

When Precious Ramotswe sets out on the trail of a missing child she is tumbled headlong into some strange situations and not a little danger.

Deftly interweaving tragedy and humor to create a memorable tale of human desires and foibles, the book is also an evocative portrait of a distant world.
