Following on from the brilliant The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Tears of the Giraffe
charts the further adventures of Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's only - and finest - female private detective.
It's going to take all her intuition and eminent sensibility for Precious to crack her hardest case yet: the decade-old disappearance of an American on the edge of the Kalahari. And if that wasn't enough, there are plenty of matters closer to home to concern her: her highly talented secretary, Mma Makutsi, eager to be promoted to detective; the unscrupulous maid of her husband-to-be, the wonderful Mr J. L. B. Matekoni; and the sudden - and unexpected - increase in her family by not one, but two.
