The Miracle at Speedy Motors Paperback
Part of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series
It has never occurred to Precious Ramotswe that there might be disadvantages to being the best-known lady detective in Botswana.
But when she receives a threatening anonymous letter, she is compelled to reconsider her unconquerable belief in a kind world and good neighbours.
While she ponders the identity of the letter-writer Mma Ramotswe has a further set of problems to solve, both professional and personal.
There is an adopted child's poignant search for her true family, and Mr J.
L. B. Matekoni's pursuit of an expensive miracle for their own foster daughter Motholeli.
With these latest developments on Tlokweng Road, Alexander McCall Smith reveals with all his brilliant storytelling skill that there are very few troubles that cannot be solved with kindness, and very few dry seasons that do not end with welcome rain.

Same chram as the others really. A number of cross grained cases almost overwhelm Mma Ramotswe's ability to cope, but a trip out to her roots enables her to decide on various courses of action. Even if following through on them isn't quit so easy.Annoyingly rather than in previous cases where Mma Ramotswe has taken some pains to be at least slightly deductive here she suddenly starts being all intuative - often wrongly. And while it's important to remember that everyone deos make mistakes, the theme is harped on a bit.Overall though it's still the same gentle engaging enjoyable writing about people who love their country and are only human. If you've liked the others you'll like this too.
