Ok, we 're up to the 8th installment of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, it 's pretty review-proof and/or just not a whole lot to say other than it 's th perfectly pleasant literary trip to visit some perfectly pleasant friends ( well, Mma Makutsi tends to get a bit crabby at times.

Another time around I almost was creating a No. 1 Ladies' drinking game.

Mention of Mma. Makutsi 's 97% score at Secretarial School?
