Professional reviews

"How lovely to spend time again with Mma Precious Ramotswe, of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Thanks to the quiet performance of Lisette Lecat, series fans reconnect with a bevy of fully formed Botswana residents--from self-important detective-assistant Grace Makutsi to Mma Ramotswe's gentle husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, and part-time detective-assistant Charlie, who's having love problems. In Book 20, business is hopping at the agency. They are finishing the case of the not-so-adulterous-spouse when Mma Ramotswe connects with an old friend whom she had presumed to be "late." Dead. Very much alive but unhappy because her daughter has suddenly become estranged, she asks Precious to look into the problem. Sensitive writing, wry humor, and Lecat's deft performance make this choice listening. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
