    "It is hard to tell if this book is set in Botswana. It seems like it's a story about funerals and is definitely not US based. "

    "As a student of the African continent, having a mystery set in Botswana was refreshing and unusual. Kubu is shrewd, yet kind and astute. I love the portrayal of the people, an authentic portrayal without being patronizing and reductive for other audiences. This book come highly recommended, for a new kind of mystery. "

    "Not many books are set in Africa, much less Botswana. The book as stands easily can be considered one of the best fiction books, however it is also a great book set in Botswana. Alexander McCall Smith manages to incorporate the setting of Botswana seamlessly into the story, perfect for those interested in the country or familiar with it to enjoy the book on another level."

    "This is a decent book that is set at Botswana, based on the reviews, this is not a bad pick up if you want something to read all about the setting in Botswana honestly. Reading all the great reviews this book got makes me think that this book is something that is very average, but not the best."
