The delightful seventeenth installment of the ever-popular, perennially best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's premier lady detective, is a little short on help. The co-director of the agency, Grace Makutsi, is busy with her own case, her client none other than their erstwhile assistant, Mr. Polopetsi, who has unwittingly involved himself in a pyramid scheme. The agency's other assistant, Charlie, may also need more help than he can offer, as he is newly embroiled in a romance with a glamorous woman about whom the others have their doubts. So when a young Canadian woman approaches Mma Ramotswe with a complex case, it's up to her alone to solve it-with her signature intuition and insight, of course. The young woman spent part of her childhood in Botswana and needs help finding a long-lost acquaintance. But much time has passed, and her memory yields few clues. The difficult search-and the unexpected results-will remind them all that sometimes it's those we think we know best who most surprise us.

Professional reviews

"It's delicious to visit with old friends, and that's certainly the case in Lisette Lecat's lovely performance of Alexander McCall Smith's newest No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mystery. South African-born Lecat, who has long narrated the series, understands the characters and atmosphere perfectly; thus, the listener can trust that all sounds as it should in the company of Botswana's Mma Ramotswe and her compatriots. Though Mma is not quite as sprightly as she used to be--time does pass--she is as warm, wise, and insightful as ever when a Canadian woman asks for help finding a Botswana nursemaid not seen since childhood. Layers of mystery ensue, which Mma Precious Ramotswe and her associate, Mma Grace Makutsi, explore--and ultimately resolve, of course. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
