Bekah asked Alexander McCall Smith:

Hello Dr. Smith, I have been reading your ladies detective, 44 Scotland Street, and Courduroy mansions for many years now. My husband has currently gotten hooked and has read your 44 scotland street series and now is reading the Ladies detective series. We were wondering why the character of Mr. Polopetse was taken out of the detective series, and if he would be back? He is an endearing and likeable character!

Alexander McCall Smith He comes back in the forthcoming book (published late in October). You'll meet him there once more. AMcS
