THE EIGHTEENTH BOOK IN THE BELOVED NO. 1 LADIES’ DETECTIVE AGENCY SERIES

The one with the other Mma Ramotswe . . .

The dismissal of an employee at a thriving local business leads to an investigation by Precious Ramotswe and self-appointed Principal Investigating Officer Grace Makutsi. But Mma Ramotswe also has to contend with the re-appearance of her ex-husband, and the arrival of a long-lost relation: another Mma Ramotswe. Can Precious draw on her strength, compassion and powers of detection to manage these surprises from the past?

A small slice of heaven
Daily Telegraph
A delight
Scottish Field
There's the usual charm and wit which have graced all of McCall Smith's previous work, as family secrets unearthed along the way make for an interesting investigation for our established heroines
People's Friend
It's always a pleasure to be reacquainted with Botswana's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Once again, with pertinent questioning and endless pots of redbush tea, the ladies fulfil their obligations and solve a few personal dilemmas, delighting the readers as as they do so
Sunday Times
Hugely enjoyable
Scotsman
The dialogue transports the reader to the book's hot, dry setting, and the gentle exchanges of mundane facts carry a weight of love and tenderness . . . Immersing yourself in Precious Ramotswe's life seems to slow your heart rate while sharpening your senses
