The library system is moving to a new mobile app! The current library mobile app will not be available after January 3, 2018. This only relates to the library’s mobile app (used on phones and tablets). You can still connect to the library through your desktop, laptop, or mobile device’s web browser at https://burlingame.bibliocommons.com/ Projected date for the new mobile app is February 1, 2018. We apologize for the inconvenience
Lots of people, including me, are fond of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, set in Botswana, and featuring the wise, traditionally-minded investigator Mma Precious Ramotswe. These cozy mysteries take place in and around Gaborone, the capital -- an exotic locale for Americans, naturally. Human nature is human nature, though, and Mma Ramotswe, like Miss Marple, uses her insights into it to figure out solutions to her cases.
Since I love mysteries and can hardly say no to a book about Africa, I got to wondering what other African
mysteries I could find. Most are not as cheerful as McCall Smith’s, but after reading one of his books, you
may want an antidote anyway.
