From Publishers' Weekly:

Alexander McCall Smith (The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency) offers the second and third installments of his dignified, humorous Botswanan series. In Tears of the Giraffe, PI Precious Ramotswe tracks a missing American man whose widowed mother appeals to Ramotswe; meanwhile, the imperturbable detective is endangered at home by her fianc?'s resentful maid.

From Library Journal:

Tears of the Giraffe and Morality for Beautiful Girls continue Mma Ramotswe's business of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, the only female-operated detective agency in Botswana. The agency deals in human drama and mystery rather than guns and blood. Insight and intuition provide solutions as Precious Ramotswe; her assistant, Mma Makutsi; and Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors impart Botswanian pride and worldly wisdom. Reader Lisette Lecat portrays these characters and the village ambiance superbly. Highly recommended for all audiobook collections.-Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., OR (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
