Precious Ramotswe, traditionally-built proprietor of Botswana's No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, contemplates the two sorts of problems that we all face in life: the major ones (such as drought), about which very little can be done, and the other sort that people make for themselves through human weakness and an inability to resist temptation. Like the inability to resist cake, for instance. That had led to several problems for Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, especially when the cake was made by Mma Potokwane, matron of the Orphan Farm. But it is Mma Ramotswe's role in life to deal with the problems of others and provide some solution to their difficulties - a role she fulfils with her usual style in this latest best-seller.
