The 11th in the No1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series sees sleuth Precious Ramotswe and her assistant Grace Makutsi on the trail of a mystery safari guide who has been named in the will of a generous benefactor. McCall Smith’s Botswana adventures have sold more than 13 million copies world wide and this is another warm, funny and engaging instalment. Expect gentle humour, eccentric, loveable characters and pearls of homespun wisdom from one of our favourite storytellers.
Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are called to a safari lodge in Botswana's Okavango Delta to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest. The Okavango makes Precious appreciate once again the beauty of her homeland: it is a paradise of teeming wildlife, majestic grasslands and sparkling water. However, it is also home to rival safari operators, fearsome crocodiles and disgruntled hippopotamuses. What's more, Mma Makutsi still does not have a date for her wedding to Phuti Radiphuti and is feeling rather tetchy herself. But Precious knows that with a little patience, just as the wide river will gently make its way round any obstacle, so will everything work out for the best in the end ...
