Publisher's Summary

The latest instalment of the beloved and best-selling series - as endearing and delectable as ever!
Business is slow at the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, so at Mma Makutsi’s suggestion, Mma Ramotswe is persuaded to take her first-ever holiday. But just as she’s about to depart, a new client arrives: a young woman whose father was considered a hero in Botswana but whose reputation is now being called into question.
Mma Ramotswe almost cancels her trip, but Mma Makutsi is adamant that she and Charlie have the situation in hand. Precious can’t relax, however, if she doesn’t know what’s going on at the agency, so she enlists Charlie to be her eyes and ears while she’s away. But Charlie may not be an altogether reliable emissary, particularly with much of his attention devoted to his newly adopted dog.
In the end it’s an investigation that will affect everyone at the agency and a reminder for us all that ordinary human failings should be treated with a large helping of charity and compassion.

Always a pleasure

I always enjoy stories about Precious Ramotswe but this is the first audible book I have listened to. I have to say that the narrator is superb. I live in Africa so I know good southern African accents when I hear them and she was outstanding, not only with accents with the characterizations as well. An excellent listen!

Fruit cake and feminism

Transported to Botswana again for another wonderful, familiar tale from the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. I don't know how Alexander McCall Smith comes up with so many different scenarios with the same characters but these books never get boring, this one has a particularly unexpected twist! Narrated as usual by Adjoa Andoh who gets all the voices spot on. Fans will not be disappointed.
