I think it goes with out saying that writing an 11th book in a series that is still just as amazing as books 1-10 is pretty bad ass. The Double Comfort Safari Club, by Alexander McCall Smith is the 11th book in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, and it STILL keeps us waiting impatiently for the next installment. I seriously am sitting here wondering how that is possible. 11 books? McCall is flawless.

Four revolving plot lines keep the reader involved and often amused. The structure is very similar to others in the series, with the familiar cast of characters appearing. Precious Ramotswe is on the case of a mystery guide who has been left a large legacy by a grateful American tourist who remembers their kindness. The only trouble the now 'late' tourist can not remember the name, or the name of the company they worked for. Precious and Mma Makutsi must travel to the area to discover this man.

You will love this addition to the series. The adventures are always entertaining.
