In this third volume of The N°1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, Mma Ramotswe faces supreme problems at home and at work. Mr J.L.B. Matekoni, the hard-working, generous-hearted mechanic and owner of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, is behaving strangely. To make matters worse, the N°1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, despite its success and high reputation, is losing money. Mma Ramotswe’s assistant, Mma Makutsi is eager for a promotion, and there are now two orphan children whom Mma Ramotswe and Mr J.L.B. Matekoni must raise. A Government Man, convinced his new sister-in-law is out to kill his younger brother, enlists Precious Ramotswe’s services, and while she is working on that case, the director of a beauty pageant asks Mma Makutsi to help him find one "good girl" who will not bring disgrace to the pageant and to Botswana.

Another great book by Alexander McCall Smith ! The author was born in what is now known as Zimbabwe and taught law at the University of Botswana ; he is now a professor of medical law at Edinburgh University.
