Praise

Praise for the 44 Scotland Street series:
 
“Just about perfect. . . . Contains a healthy helping of McCall Smith’s patented charm.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Delightful. . . . Sweet. . . . Graceful. . . . Wonderful. . . . Alexander McCall Smith writes faster than most people read, which is good news for [his] legions of fans who rarely have to go more than a few months without a new fix of his gentle but powerfully addicting fiction.”–Entertainment Weekly

“Delightfully charming. . . . McCall Smith’s plots offer wit, charm and intrigue in equal doses.”–Richmond Times Dispatch

“Entertaining and witty. . . . A sly send-up of society in Edinburgh.”–Orlando Sentinel

“Mr. McCall Smith, a fine writer, paints his hometown of Edinburgh as indelibly as he captures the sunniness of Africa. We can almost feel the mists as we tread the cobblestones.”–The Dallas Morning News

“Alexander McCall Smith is the most genial of writers and the most gentle of satirists. . . . [The] characters are great fun . . . [and] McCall Smith treats all of them with affection.” —Rocky Mountain News
