A cross between Kate Brannigan and Miss Marple, Precious Remotswe embarks from her breezeblock office in Botswana on this humourous story of missing husbands, impostor relatives, wayward daughters and abduction. Not all her cases are successful.
The authors prose has the merits of simplicity, euphony and precision. His descriptions leave one as if standing in the Botswanan landscape. This is art that conceals art. I havent read anything with such unalloyed pleasure for a long time.
