Summary

It is a troublesome fact on which even Mma Ramotswe and her assistant Mma Makutsi agree: there are things that men know and ladies do not, and vice versa. It is unfortunate, for example, when Mma Ramotswe's newest client is the owner of the ailing Kalahari Swoopers, that one thing lady detectives know little about is football.

And when the glamorous Violet Sephotho sets her sights on Mma Makutsi's fiancé, it becomes exasperatingly clear that some men do not know how to recognise a ruthless Jezebel.

In her attempt to foster understanding between the sexes and find the traitor on Mr Football's team, Mma Ramotswe ventures into new territory and learns to trust in the observational powers of small boys.

The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series!

Alexander McCall Smith writes in such a way he creates images in your mind that bring the story to full life as the characters play out their parts in your minds eye as you listen. The narrator does a fantastic job! I bought this series for my daughter to listen to, she has a brain injury and has a vision impairment (Thank you Audible for having so many great books!) and yet the whole house seems to stand still and just listen when these books are playing. With such strong female lead characters that bare their inner most thoughts feelings and beliefs these books are a must read/listen.
