Quotes & Awards

  • “In the halls of academe, a setting fraught with ego-driven battles for power and prestige [Alexander McCall Smith] has rendered yet another one-of-a-kind character: the bumbling but brilliant Dr. Mortiz-Maria von Igelfeld[a] deftly rendered trilogy [with] endearingly eccentric characters.”

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Pam | 2/18/2014

    " Read this book after I had read some of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series back in the early 2000s and it just wasn't as good. I do read and appreciate the No. 1 Ladies Detetive Agency series, the Isabel Dalhousie series, the 44 Scotland Street series and the Corduroy Mansions series. I try to read them as soon as a new one is published and highly recommend them! "

    " Amusing end to this series. Not as good as the No. 1 Ladies detective agency from this same author, but an easy 'listen'. "
