Description

Business is slow at the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, so at Mma Makutsi's suggestion, Mma Ramotswe is persuaded to take her first-ever holiday. But just as she's about to depart, a new client arrives: a young woman whose father was considered a hero in Botswana but whose reputation is now being called into question. Mma Ramotswe almost cancels her trip, but Mma Makutsi is adamant that she and Charlie have the situation in hand.

Precious can't relax, however, if she doesn't know what's going on at the agency, so she enlists Charlie to be her eyes and ears while she's away. But Charlie may not be an altogether reliable emissary, particularly with much of his attention devoted to his newly adopted dog.

In the end, it's an investigation that will affect everyone at the Agency, and a reminder for us all that ordinary human failings should be treated with a large helping of charity and compassion.

About Alexander McCall Smith

Alexander McCall Smith is one of the world's most prolific and most popular authors. His career has been a varied one: for many years he was a professor of Medical Law and worked in universities in the United Kingdom and abroad. Then, after the publication of his highly successful No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, which has sold over twenty million copies, he devoted his time to the writing of fiction and has seen his various series of books translated into over forty languages and become bestsellers through the world.

The series include the Scotland Street novels, first published as a serial novel in The Scotsman, the Sunday Philosophy Club series starring Isabel Dalhousie, the von Igelfeld series, and the new Corduroy Mansions novels.

Alexander is also the author of collections of short stories, academic works, and over thirty books for children. He has received numerous awards for his writing, including the British Book Awards Author of the Year Award in 2004 and a CBE for service to literature in 2007. He holds honorary doctorates from nine universities in Europe and North America.

Alexander McCall Smith lives in Edinburgh. He is married to a doctor and has two daughters. Adjoa Andoh is a British film, television, stage and radio actress. She is a familiar face on British television - starring in two series of Doctor Who, 90 episodes of the BBC's long-running medical drama Casualty and a year in popular soap opera EastEnders. In 2009 she made her Hollywood debut in Clint Eastwood's Invictus.
Andoh is also an accomplished narrator, winning an Audiobook of the Year Audie Award for Tea Time for the Traditionally Built - the tenth in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series of novels by Alexander McCall Smith - all of which she voices.
