In this story, Precious Ramotswe deals with issues of mistaken identity and great fortune against the beautiful backdrop of Botswana’s remote and striking Okavango Delta. Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi head to a safari camp to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest who has left one of the guides a large sum of money. But once they find their man, Precious begins to sense that something is not right. To make matters worse, shortly before their departure Mma Makutsi’s fiancé, Phuti Radiphuti, suffers a debilitating accident, and when his aunt moves in to take care of him, she also pushes Mma Makutsi out of the picture. Could she be trying to break up the relationship? Finally, a local priest and his wife independently approach Mma Ramotswe with concerns of infidelity, creating a rather unusual and tricky situation. Nevertheless, Precious is confident that with a little patience, kindness and good sense things will work out for the best, something that will delight her many fans.

    " The 11th is his series about Mma. Ramotswe - I think he may be reaching the end of this series life. Still a pleasant read but lacking something. "

    " Mma Ramotswe takes on another variety of intriguing cases, including helping a man whose stupidity has led to his being bilked out of a considerable sum of money; tracking down a beneficiary, who has been left a legacy by an American tourist; and on a more personal level, helping Grace winkle her poor fiance Phuti, a new amputee, out from his terrible aunt's care. As usual, spending time with these marvelous characters is like slowing down to enjoy a cup of red bush tea. Lovely! "
