Publisher's Summary

"Ex-CID. Ex-New York. Ex-cellent" reads the sign outside the Satisfaction Guarantee Detective Agency. Cephas Buthelezi certainly talks the talk, Precious discovers, but would he have the wherewithal to deal with her current case, a man who has been attacked by ostrich rustlers and is eager to reassess his life?

Meanwhile, there are difficulties at the Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, where one of the apprentices has discovered the Lord; problems at home with the mysterious death of a hoopoe; and romantic complications when Mma Makutsi sets up a typing school for men.

Critic Reviews

"Mma Ramotswe's methods and her results are as unusual as the novels they inhabit...All this activity is much less about whodunnit than why." (The New York Times)
"McCall Smith is a careful, emblematic writer who is beyond gifted, he is a natural storyteller. McCall Smith has once again charmed the sarongs off us." (The List)
