Mr. Buthelezi threatens Mma "Precious" Ramotswe's status as the only detective in Botswana when he opens the Satisfaction Guaranteed Detective Agency in this fourth title of "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" series. Her wisdom and common sense help solve both the cases of one of Mr. Buthelezi's dissatisfied customers and one involving her assistant, Mma Grace Makutsi, whose ingenuity drives the opening of the Kalahari Typing School for Men. Lisette Lecat's clearly understood accent adds ambience to this sure-to-be-popular recording. Highly recommended.-Sandy Glover, West Linn P.L., OR Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
