Precious Ramotswe, Botswana’s premier - and only - lady detective, is back with another batch of unusual cases. In these eight episodes, she receives a visit from a very important person; helps out Mma Potokwani, who has had bad news at the Orphan Farm; looks into who is orchestrating a campaign against Mma Soleti; and welcomes a new arrival - while righting an old wrong. Plus, Mr JLB Matekoni’s apprentice gets into trouble; Mma Makutsi is hiding a secret; and Mma Ramotswe tries to come to terms with one of the trickiest situations she has ever faced: taking a holiday.

Only one route lies open to Mack: the path of his ancestors, overland to the Bering Strait and across the sea to America. But in pursuit is a legendary tracker....

This is a story that keeps you listening way after you should be asleep! I wish Louis Lamour had written a sequel though - my only disappointment with this story,
