COLOURS OF ALL THE CATTLE

ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH    Book Number: 86314    Product format: Hardback

The latest from the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency, we have the glamorous 2018 hardback. Precious Ramotswe is pondering the meaning of her life. A meeting with Mma Potokwani who runs the local orphan farm provides unsettling inspiration. It is Mma Ramotswe's instinct for selflessness, her calm and rational thinking, that make her a perfect candidate for a newly vacant seat on the local council. Who better to defend the community against corruption and injustice? Meanwhile a troubling case with a link to her past is brought to the agency. Full-time mechanic and part-time detective Charlie is assigned to investigate and he is keen to prove both his ability to his superior, Mma Makutsi, and his worth to Queenie-Queenie who has captured his heart. Mma Makutsi is confidently in pursuit of a ruthless local property developer and his plans for the odious-sounding Big Fun Hotel. Charlie's investigation runs into dark and frightening territory and Mma Ramotswe comes to recognise that it is not political power that gives her life its vital purpose but to understand and support those who need her most. 'And she thought of her father, Obed Ramotswe... he would be helping look after the cattle in heaven...special cattle, broad of back and shoulder, of all colours, who knew that they were loved and who loved their keepers in return.' 231pp.
