The 10th entry in the internationally best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series finds Precious Ramotswe investigating a mystery that hits close to home. In this latest installment in the endlessly entertaining series, Precious Ramotswe faces problems both personal and professional. The first is the potential demise of an old friend, her tiny white van. Recently, it has developed a rather troubling knock, but she dare not consult the estimable Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni for fear he may condemn the vehicle. Meanwhile, her talented assistant Mma Makutsi is plagued by the reappearance of her nemesis, Violet Sephotho, who has taken a job at the Double Comfort Furniture store whose proprietor is none other than Phuti Radiphuti, Mma Makutsi's fiancE. Finally, the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency has been hired to explain the unexpected losing streak of a local football club, the Kalahari Swoopers. But with Mma Ramotswe on the case, it seems certain that everything will be resolved satisfactorily.

Professional reviews

"Lisette Lecat is the perfect performer for these extraordinarily charming tales about the daily life of Precious Ramotswe, lady detective in hot and dusty Botswana. Once you've been seduced by her African accent with its purring "r's" and round and juicy "m's," no other narrator for this series will do. Lecat captures each character's personality with spot-on emotional connection and impeccable timing. In Book 10 of the bestselling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, we find Precious looking into reasons for the failure of a popular football club, along with her usual sorting out of her own heartaches and those of her irascible but lovable secretary. Ultimately, each story leaves you longing to return to Botswana and demanding that Lisette Lecat take you there. D.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
