I prefer Smith's other series on the Botswana lady detective. What is good about this book though, is the truisms about the use of language that one never realises, and which Smith so starkly elucidates, such as language as a courtesy, eg. you say something nice but you don't expect the other party to take you seriously and the other party understands that too.
