Tears of the Giraffe

  • Publisher: Abacus
  • Pages: 240
  • Part of a series: Yes, there are many other books with Mma Ramotswe and her No.1 Ladies Detectiv Agency.
  • Summary: Among her cases this time are wayward wives, unscrupulous maids, and the challenge to resolve a mother’s pain for her son who is long lost on the African plains. Indeed, Mma Ramotswe’s own impending marriage to the most gentlemanly of men, Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, the promotion of Mma’s secretary to the dizzy heights of Assistant Detective, and the arrival of new members to the Matekoni family, all brew up the most humorous and charmingly entertaining of tales.

  • Review: I have read the first book of Mma Ramotswe (Ein Krokodil für Mma Ramotswe), because a friend recommended it to me. And I liked it very much because Mma Ramotswe is such a special and lovely person. So I was looking forward to read the second book. In my holidays in march I had the time to start it and I loved the second book , too. But I have to say it isn´t a normal crime, more the story about a woman.  Although I can recommend it to all of you and especial to those, who love Afrika.
