Similar to the other sequels in the "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series," this book is enjoyable, but does not live up to the original. At this point, the timeline of the series is really dragging, as though the author can't imagine what any of his characters will be doing past next week. He also hints at and tiptoes around the AIDS crisis, repeatedly, without actually mentioning it. I suppose that it is an everyday part of the characters' lives and not worth making a special plotline for, but it would be nice to see a call to action come from the series.
