Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the latest installment of this infinitely enjoyable and best-selling series, Precious Ramotswe is doing what she does best--helping people with their problems and enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

Mma Ramotswe is busy investigating her latest case: a woman who is looking for her family. The problem is, the woman doesn't know her real name of whether any members of her family are now living. Meanwhile, Phuti Radiphuti has bought Mma Makutsi a glorious new bed. Unfortunately, it will inadvertently cause her several sleepless nights. And life is no less complicated at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni--Mma Ramotswe's estimable husband--has fallen under the sway of a doctor who has promised a miracle cure for his daughter's medical condition, which Mma Ramotswe finds hard to believe. But Precious Ramotswe deals with these difficulties with her usual grace and good humor, and in the end discovers that the biggest miracles in life are often the small ones.

Synopsis:

Mma Precious Ramotswe heads to a Botswana game preserve to investigate the death of an elderly American tourist, while at the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Mma Makutsi institutes the Complaint Half Hour to air her personal grievances, and at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, Mma Ramotswe's husband suddenly decides to mortgage the garage. 300,000 first printing.
