The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series started life as a short story written for friends but took hold of its author and grew first to one novel and then, over the space of fifteen years, to thirteen. The characters have won the hearts of readers around the globe and together, the thirteen volumes have together become one of the world’s most successful series, with over 20 million copies sold in English and translations in 45 languages.

Precious Ramotswe, that cheerful woman of traditional build, is the founder of Gabarone’s first ladies’ detective agency. Since her first appearance in 1998 she has become established as one of the most famous private detectives in world-literature by solving her cases through her innate wisdom and her understanding of human nature. Her gentle interpretation of the detective role is helped along the way by a host of delightful characters: the patient and noble Mr JLB Matekoni, her long standing fiance; her loyal and enterprising assistant, Mma Makutsi; and the wily Mma Motokwani, matron of the nearby orphanage.
