For years Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi - codirectors of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - have been helping people with the problems in their lives, but their partnership is tested by a curious case: a client who wants to rediscover the life she lost when she left Botswana 30 years ago.
Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi soon find that the quest for the truth takes them in very different directions. Each is convinced she is on the right track - but what if they are both wrong?
Meanwhile Mma Ramotswe must extract Mr Polopetsi - part-time assistant detective - from a potential disaster with wide-reaching consequences; deal with a stray dog that Fanwell, the gentle mechanic, has brought into their lives; and cope with the agency's archenemy, Violet Sephotho.
Steeped in the heat of summer in Botswana and packed with intrigue, this heartfelt tale of friendship under pressure reveals how coming to terms with the past may be the only way to face the future.
"Enchanting.... An inspiration to us all.... The sweet, chuckling voice of Precious Ramotswe falls gentle on the ear." ( Publishers Weekly)

Another delightful trip to Botswana
Adjoa Andoh always makes the wonderful world of Mma Ramotswe come alive so convincingly. After 17 books the Botswana of Alexander McCall Smith offers a glorious, if fictitious, refuge from the stress and disappointments of life in cold grey Britain and the intolerance of Brexit. If only Mma Ramotswe could replace Theresa May our problems would soon be solved!

I love all these books and Mma Ramotswe is my hero. They just get better and better.
And Adjoa Andoh characterises so well! Her voice is soothing and very adaptable, and she conveys emotions brilliantly. She really captures the heart and spirit of the No 1 ladies Detective Agency. Thankyou
