Under the endless skies of Botswana, there is always something Mma Ramotswe can do to help someone and here she finds herself assisting a woman looking for her family. The problem is the woman doesn't know her real name or whether any of her family members are still alive. Meanwhile, Mma Makutsi is the recipient of a beautiful new bed that causes more than a few sleepless nights. And, at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni has come under the influence of a doctor promising a miracle cure for his daughter's medical condition, which Mma Ramotswe finds hard to accept. Nonetheless, Precious Ramotswe handles these things in her usual compassionate and good-natured way, while always finding time for a cup of red bush tea.

"Audiobooks provide listeners with wonderful stories and narrators who captivate. Rarely has there been a combination as well suited as Lisette Lecat and Alexander McCall Smith's charming #1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. Lecat was born in South Africa and is gifted with a gorgeous speaking voice. She understands both the dialects and the sensibilities of McCall Smith's many colorful characters. In this episode, aside from Mma Precious Ramotswe's usual investigations, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, Ramotswe's husband and the proprietor of Tlokweng Road's Speedy Motors, seems taken in by a doctor whom Precious believes is a charlatan. With some of fiction's most agreeable characters, a consistently amusing story line, and Lecat's splendid performance, this is one fans won't want to miss. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
