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 fiancee, 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.

"South Africa native Lisette Lecat narrates this latest installment of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series with an elegance and authenticity that is perfectly suited to the series. In their most recent adventure, Mma Ramotswe and her indomitable assistant, Mma Makutsi, must venture to the Okavango Delta to identify a safari guide who has been left a generous gift by a recently deceased American. Meanwhile, Mma Makutsi's fiancŽ, Phuti Radiphuti, must face a challenge of his own when one of his Double Comfort Furniture delivery trucks backs into him and crushes his leg. Lecat's performance vividly portrays McCall Smith's characters with all the subtlety, kindness, and humor that fans have come to expect. K.O. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
