In the Company of Cheerful Ladies (Audio Cassette) - Alexander McCall Smith

£16.99

Product description

In the Company of Cheerful Ladies
Alexander McCall Smith

Read by Hilary Neville

Unabridged on six cassettes with a total running time of approx. 7 hours 40 mins.

Precious Ramotswe is finally married to Mr J. L. B. Matekoni, of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors.

Mma Ramotswe's Detective Agency is very busy, but she cannot ignore a plea which is made to her by a woman with a tale of particular misfortune. Unfortunately, her attempts to help are interrupted by a close encounter between her tiny white van and a bicycle, and by a spectacular disagreement between her assistant, Mma Makutsi, and one of the garage apprentices. This apprentice has found a fancy girlfriend who drives a Mercedes-Benz — clearly, he must be rescued from his folly.

As for Mma Makutsi, she has found a dancing class, and a man who admires her greatly. All this against a background of quiet sessions of bush tea and a land that stretches forever under mile upon mile of empty sky.

Published in this format by Isis Audio Books, 2004.
