(No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency #2)

In ‘Tears of the Giraffe,’ Mma Ramotswe gets engages to a local mechanic, Mr. J.L.B. Maketoni, and next thing you know, also has a couple of foster children. At the detective agency, her assistant, Mma Makutsi, is promoted to Assistant Detective, as they investigate the dissapearance of the long-missing son of an American woman, and (separately) a case of suspected adultery. Mma Ramotswe’s unconventional but empathetic methods solve problems in sometimes-unexpected ways that may be for the best.
