Description
When a young man claims to be the nephew of a prosperous farmer who recently died, Mma Precious Ramotswe is called in to make sure the inheritance falls into the right hands, in this 14th installment in Alexander McCall Smith's irresistible cozy series (following The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection). Botswana's busiest female detective is also asked by the proprietor of the Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon to investigate some ominous threats to the new business. If this wasn't enough trouble, Ramotswe's assistant Grace Makutsi has some news that could compel her to leave the agency. The first book in this series, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, was voted one of the International Books of the Year and the Millennium by London's Times Literary Supplement, and inspired the HBO television series of the same name. The agency at first consists of one woman: the charismatic Mma Precious Ramotswe ("the Miss Marple of Botswana", according to the New York Times Book Review), who specializes in rooting out missing husbands and wayward daughters, con men and imposters.

"[These novels are] wonderfully crafted descriptions of life in the agency and at home, the beauties of Botswana, and the joys, big and small, of life. This latest is, especially, a tribute to enduring friendship."Booklist
