4 journalers for this copy...
Another interesting woman detective from Alexander McCall Smith. It's not that she meant to be one- just felt the need to solve the reason for a puzzling death. Unlike the mother wit of Mma Ramotswe of Smith's Botswana series, this young woman lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. And a good portrait it is.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Over a month waiting to journal this book, as there was no BCID written in. It was found in LFL 10,728 in Stroudsburg, PA.
As I fished it out of the LFL to reconnect book to BCID, and mysteries aren't really my thing, I will be sharing this one.
Forum link where other BCer's helped me identify this book here
This will be used as the companion book for the Indigenous Peoples bookbox.

*When you get the box please post in the forum (http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/546986/) and in the companion book (www.bookcrossing.com/journal/2912703) so we can track its progress.
*Journal all books you take out of the box.
*Make sure the books you add have the BCID in them. It seems obvious, but I have had times when folks forgot and I had to try and track them down.
*Books do not have to be the first in a series, but before adding take into consideration how they will read as a stand-alone. If the future reader is going to be completely lost, particularly if the series isn't easily found, please consider finding it a home another way.
*Books can be of any genre (fiction, non fiction, mystery, etc), as long as it fits the theme and isn't overloaded with one genre.
*The theme is Indigenous People from all continents-North America, Australia, etc. While books can be fictitious in nature the culture or the tribes cannot be fictitious (so the Que-Shu People from Dragonlance or Tiger Lily from Peter Pan don't count). Books written about a specific tribe or a person from a tribe all count; and the Indigenous people(s) don't have to be the main protagonist or antagonist, they can be the sidekick or another character within the story.
*Please pass the box on within 2 weeks. If something comes up and you are going to have to hold onto the box a little longer, let me know so we don't have to worry it got lost.
*Feel free to ship the box by the cheapest, slowest postage option.

The Indigenous Peoples bookbox reached me today, along with this designated-bookbox-journal and its fascinating history. (While I enjoyed Smith's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books, I never quite got into the Isabel Dalhousie series, so I won't take the time to read this one.)
