        Starred review from February 26, 2007
        Smith once again combines a loving depiction of ordinary life in modern Botswana with memorable characters and an engaging mystery in the eighth installment in his beloved No. 1 Ladies Detective series (after Blue Shoes and Happiness
        ). Dr. Cronje, who's half Xhosa and half Afrikaner, consults Smith's sleuth, the gentle and insightful Precious Ramotswe, because patients at his hospital who have occupied a particular bed have been dying mysteriously at the same time of day. Meanwhile, Mma Ramotswe's recently engaged assistant, Grace Makutsi, threatens to break their longstanding association. Mma Ramotswe must adjust their relationship in order to retain Mma Makutsi's services. The author's subtlety of touch and humane portrayal of figures at all levels of society will continue to win him new readers even as his deepening of the ties binding the main figures will satisfy those who have followed the lady detectives from their first recorded case.

        Starred review from June 25, 2007
        Lisette Lecat doesn’t simply portray the characters in McCall Smith’s series about Botswana’s No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and the Speedy Motors car repair service that improbably share a building in the nation’s capitol city: she is
        Mma Ramotswe, that robust, throaty and ever-so-kind detective. Lecat is also Ramotswe’s husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, whose rumbling pronouncements sound as if they originate in one of the beaten-down Mercedes he tenderly mends. Ramotswe’s assistant, Mma Makutsi, makes her caustic comments in a pencil-sharp voice. Even Makutsi’s shoes, which offer advice to their wearer from time to time, have a down-to-earth tone to them. Each volume of this series offers Lecat a few new characters to inhabit. She does especially well with a rude, shrill client who thinks her husband is cheating on her. Even though the series is becoming a bit repetitious, Lecat brings so much love and skill to her rendition of the characters that this will charm both old fans and newcomers alike. Simultaneous release with the Pantheon hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 22).

      • content: Lisette Lecat performs her eighth Ladies' Detective Agency novel with her usual precision and vibrancy. Her portrayal of Precious Ramotswe, the wise and unflappable proprietor of Botswana's leading detective business, makes her character even more endearing than she is in print. Facing personal and professional difficulties with aplomb, Precious makes room for her husband, J.L.B. Matekoni, to track a cheating husband, deals with her recently engaged colleague Mma Makutsi's brief resignation, makes time to philosophize about the ills of the world over a few cups of red bush tea, and manages to solve the mystery of why three hospital patients died in the same bed at the same time.
