Summary: In this latest episode in the beloved, series, the kindest and best detective in Botswana faces a tricky situation when her personal and professional lives become entangled. Precious Ramotswe has a dream: a vision of a tall, strange man who waits for her beneath an acacia tree. Odd as this is, she's far too busy to worry about it. The best apprentice at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors is in trouble with the law and stuck with the worst lawyer in Gaborone. Grace Makutsi and Phuti Radiphuti are building the house of their dreams, but their builder is not completely on the up and up. And, most shockingly, Mma Potokwane, has been dismissed from her post as matron at the orphan farm. Can the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency help restore the beloved matron to her rightful position? Review "Part of the brilliance of this series (in its thirteenth entry) is that what may seem like tiny cases expand into considerations of virtue, love, ambition, greed, and evil . . . McCall Smith's novels are both very meditative and laugh-out-loud funny. If you've never read a No. 1 Ladies', now's the time." -Booklist (starred review) "Smart and sassy . . . with the power to amuse or shock or touch the heart, sometimes all at once." -Los Angeles Times "McCall Smith makes the sublime look easy . . . [He] has few peers in capturing the quiet moments of people's lives, and his empathetic lead has one of the biggest hearts in modern literature." -Publishers Weekly About the Author Alexander McCall Smith is also the author of the Isabel Dalhousie series, the Portuguese Irregular Verbs series, the 44 Scotland Street series, and the Corduroy Mansions series.
