The delightful 17th installment of the ever-popular, perennially best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.
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.

"There is no end to the pleasure that may be extracted from these books." (New York Times Book Review)
"Enchanting.... An inspiration to us all.... The sweet, chuckling voice of Precious Ramotswe falls gentle on the ear." (Publishers Weekly)
I always enjoy stories about Precious Ramotswa - the gentle philosophising, the innate dignity and the satisfactory conclusions. This is another of those stories. The narrator Adjoa Andoh really makes the characters more credible than ever. Loved it!
Really enjoy this series and the only downside of listening is knowing that there will be a wait for the next book! Love the narration by Adjoa Andoh !! Transports me to Botswana and brings all the characters to life.
