In the ninth installment of this infinitely enjoyable and bestselling series, Precious Ramotswe is doing what she does best-solving crimes and taking care of business: her own and everybody else's.

Investigating her latest case, Mma Ramotswe has to trek to a game preserve, where she rediscovers the breathtaking beauty of her beloved Botswana. She is there to uncover the truth about an elderly American traveller whose safari proved to be his last journey. What she discovers is a surprise to everyone concerned.

Meanwhile, problems are also brewing back at the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency: Mma Makutsi has instituted the Complaint Half Hour in order to air her grievances-which works well for her until Mma Ramotswe decides to institute her own version. And life is no less complicated at Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni-Mma Ramotswe's estimable husband-has suddenly decided to mortgage the garage.

But without a doubt-and after several cups of bush tea-Precious Ramotswe will make sure, as only she can, that everything turns out as it should.

Calling this a detective story may not do it (or a potential reader) justice. The plot is inconsequential, the crime nonexistent, dramatic tension nebulous. Not quite as charming as "The Tears of the Giraffe" but a pleasant bit of diversion. The appeal of this series of post-colonial African stories lies in the characters and their gentle, entirely humanistic view of life. There are no real villains here and therefore no particular need for heroes either, just everyday people getting on with their lives. As usual, Precious Ramotswe, armed with common sense and goodwill, keeps her head when all those around her are.... well, you know how that is supposed to work.
