THE NO. 1 LADIES’ DETECTIVE AGENCY - Book 12
Fans around the world adore the best-selling No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series and its proprietor, Precious Ramotswe, Botswana’s premier lady detective. In this charming series, Mma Ramotswe—with help from her loyal associate, Grace Makutsi—navigates her cases and her personal life with wisdom, good humor, and the occasional cup of tea.
At a remote cattle post south of Gaborone two cows have been killed, and Precious Ramotswe, Botswana’s No. 1 Lady Detective, is asked to investigate by a rather frightened and furtive gentleman. It is an intriguing problem with plenty of suspects—including, surprisingly, her own client.
To complicate matters, Mma Ramotswe is haunted by a vision of her dear old white van, and Grace Makutsi witnesses it as well. Is it the ghost of her old friend, or has it risen from the junkyard? In the meantime, one of Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni’s apprentices may have gotten a girl pregnant and, under pressure to marry her, has run away. Naturally, it is up to Precious to help sort things out. Add to the mix Violet Sephotho’s newly launched run for the Botswana Parliament and a pair of perfect wedding shoes—will wedding bells finally ring for Phuti Radiphuti and Grace Makutsi?—and we have a charming and delightful tale in the inimitable style of Alexander McCall Smith.

Another beautiful tale of Precious Ramotswe life
I have love reading all the books in The Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, but this one was exceptional!! The cases are interesting and complex, and we learn more about Precious's heart, as she deals with the difficult case of cattle. There are many moral dilemmas and I really enjoyed the lessons learned. Run to the store to get this book!!!

This series of books by Alexander McCall Smith are absolutely wonderful. A philosophy of life is thrown in the lives of the Botswana people. I wish we all had the same philosophies.
