THE NO. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lisette Lecat

Mystery & Suspense • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1998

Mma “Precious” Ramotswe is a clever, resourceful, and beautifully fat woman who, shortly after the death of her father, decides to open a detective agency. South African native Lisette Lecat guides listeners with her precise diction and authentic use of dialect and accents, introducing listeners to Mma Ramotswe, her early life, and her decision to become a detective, providing accounts of her first several cases. The storytelling and setting are both quaint and exotic, portraying the oddities of village life in Botswana and the slow erosion of a way of life. Lecat captures the atmosphere and irony of Smith’s book down to the bush tea. S.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
