Each installment featuring the formidable ladies of the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is a treat, and Alexander McCall Smith’s latest, Precious and Grace, is no exception. If perhaps you have missed a case or two along the way, not to worry, this “is a book that can appeal both to newcomers and to longtime fans.” (Booklist, starred review)
Newly promoted to co-director, Mma Grace Maktusi is attempting to leave her mark on the agency—including a controversial move to bill clients for time spent on cases (much to Mma Ratowse’s chagrin). In addition to the delicate state of office politics, both ladies will be tested by their latest challenging case, that of a Canadian woman who grew up in Botswana and is seeking a missing person near and dear to her.
In honor of the hardcover publication of Precious and Grace, we’ve put together some pearls of wisdom taken from the seventeenth delightful mystery in this beloved series.
