'It's going to take all her intuition and eminent sensibility for Precious to crack her hardest case yet: the decade-old disappearance of an American on the edge of the Kalahari. And if that wasn't enough, there are plenty of matters closer to home to concern her: her highly talented secretary, Mma Makutsi, eager to be promoted to detective; the unscrupulous maid of her husband-to-be, the wonderful Mr J.L.B. Matekoni; and the sudden - and unexpected - increase in her family by not one, but two.'

8 out of 10

Can't believe I took so long to get round to reading this, and after reading so many of the later books in the series too!!

This book continues the tale of Precious Ramotswe, Mma Makutsi, J.L.B Matekoni and others are introduced and expanded from the first book in the series. Again, the wonderful gentle feel of the book and the superb writing weave a magical web around the reader until transported into the rhythm of the pages. Botswana shimmers in the background and the unravelling of the complex human situations once again ring so true that they seem so natural you wonder how it was not so obvious all the way through.

Wonderful book in a series of wonderful books with great gentle writing which fascinates from page one to the end.
