Follows 'Tears Of The Giraffe'. In this third volume of 'The No. 1 Ladies' Detective' series, the irrepressible Precious Ramotswe faces supreme problems at home and at work.
With her detective agency in financial difficulty, Mme Ramotswe takes the hard decision to share offices with her husband-to-be, Mr JLB Matekoni. But even though the Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors could do with a little help, it is Mr Matekoni himself who requires her attention . . .
If that wasn't enough, the agency is facing some of its most puzzling cases: the government official whose sister-in-law is trying to poison his brother; the beauty pageant whose contestants aren't as good as their looks; and the strange young boy, found naked and wild, and smelling of lion . . .
