(2017)
(Book 18 in the No 1 Ladies' Detective agency series)
A novel by

 
 
The latest instalment of the irresistibly charming, perennially best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.

Precious Ramotswe has always idolised her father, the late Obed Ramotswe. She feels that she knows all about his life - but does she? Sometimes our parents surprise us, and we discover that things were not quite what we thought them to be. And the same goes for Mma Makutsi, Mma Ramotswe's feisty assistant, who also makes certain discoveries about her own past that cause some surprise.

The placid world of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is further disturbed by the arrival in Gaborone of somebody whom Mma Ramotswe - and Mr JLB Matekoni, for that matter - definitely do not want to see. Of course calm eventually prevails - as it always does in the timeless world of these remarkable ladies.

Fans around the world adore the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and its proprietor, Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's premier lady detective. In this delightful series, Mma Ramotswe - with help from her loyal codirector, Mma Makutsi - navigates her cases and her personal life with wisdom, good humour and the occasional cup of tea.
