Publisher's Summary

Listeners will agree that this touching and dramatic new installment in Alexander McCall Smith’s beloved and best-selling series is the finest yet. In this story, Precious Ramotswe deals with issues of mistaken identity and great fortune against the beautiful backdrop of Botswana’s remote and striking Okavango Delta.
Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi head to a safari camp to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest who has left one of the guides a large sum of money. But once they find their man, Precious begins to sense that something is not right. To make matters worse, shortly before their departure, Mma Makutsi’s fiancé, Phuti Radiphuti, suffers a debilitating accident, and when his aunt moves in to take care of him, she also pushes Mma Makutsi out of the picture. Could she be trying to break up the relationship?
Finally, a local priest and his wife independently approach Mma Ramotswe with concerns of infidelity, creating a rather unusual and tricky situation. Nevertheless, Precious is confident that with a little patience, kindness and good sense things will work out for the best - something that will delight her many fans.

I love this series

I am totally addicted to the Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency series and was so excited when this latest book came to Double Comfort Safari Club did not let me down - it was as great as I anticipated it would be. The saga continues and I will continue to eagerly await the next book in the series. I do not read the books - I prefer the audible version. I think the person who performs this series is the best I have ever heard reading any book. Her voice is pleasing and her accents are fantastic. She can pronounce the names of people, places and things so much better than I could in my reading of the book.. This adds to my enjoyment. She is absolutely brilliant in her reading and performance.

The Magic is Back!

I found this most recent contribution to the series completely satisfying! I love how AMCS enriches my understanding of this remarkable country while making me laugh and warming my heart. Slow? I'd say leisurely. And there's no place I'd rather be!
