Publisher's Summary

Wayward daughters. Missing Husbands. Philandering partners. Curious conmen. If you've got a problem, and no one else can help you, then pay a visit to Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's only - and finest - female private detective. Her methods may not be conventional, and her manner not exactly Miss Marple, but she's got warmth, wit, and canny intuition on her side, not to mention Mr J.L.B. Maketoni, the charming proprietor of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors. And Precious is going to need them all as she sets out on the trail of a missing child, a case that tumbles our heroine into a hotbed of strange situations and more than a little danger. Delightfully different, The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency offers a captivating glimpse of an unusual world.

Awful narration

Having listened to the incomparable Adjoa Andoh narrate the rest of the series, it was a bitter disappointed to discover that Hilary Neville is incapable of even pronouncing 'Gabarone' correctly. I was unable to listen for more that 2 minutes and regret my purchase immensely!

Better than on television!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this Audiobook, having already watched the series on television. It captivated my attention and I found jobs to do that allowed me time to finish listening to it. The story gave a view into a totally different world to mine which I found fascinating.
