FOR ALL CONFIDENTIAL MATTERS AND ENQUIRIES. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED FOR ALL PARTIES.
UNDER PERSONAL MANAGEMENT.

A beguiling mystery and lyrical novel of Africa -- the fourth in a series that the L.A. Times calls “thoroughly engaging and entertaining.”

Now that The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency (the only detective agency for ladies and others in Botswana) is established, its founder, Precious Ramotswe, can look upon her life with pride: she’s reached her late thirties (“the finest age to be”), has a house, two children, a good fiancé -- Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni -- and many satisfied customers. But life is never without its problems. It turns out that her adopted son is responsible for the dead hoopoe bird in the garden; her assistant, Mma Makutsi, wants a husband and needs help with her idea to open the Kalahari Typing School for Men; yet Mma Ramotswe’s sexist rival has no trouble opening his Satisfaction Guaranteed Detective Agency across town. Will Precious Ramotswe’s delightfully cunning and profoundly moral methods save the day? Follow the continuing story of Botswana’s first lady detective in the irresistible The Kalahari Typing School for Men.

Another great book in a wonderful series.

Precious Ramotswe, founder of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency has competition in the form of an arrogant, sexist man who has opened his Satisfaction Guaranteed Agency. He believes that his agency is the only one who can help people as he is a man with experience.

Her adopted son has shown some disturbing behaviour in killing a bird and she doesn't quite know how to handle the situation.

Her assistant, Mma Makutsi, wants a husband and decides to open The Kalahari Typing School for Men. One of Mma Makutsi's clients shows interest in her. Finally, Precious Ramotswe's fiancee, Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni is showing no signs of setting a date for their marriage.

Mma Ramotswe shows wisdom and morality in all the problems she solves. Each of the books in this series is like a wave of fresh air.
