The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith

Precious Ramotswe returns in the latest entry in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. In the book, Mma Ramotswe is hired to find out why patients are dying in a particular hospital bed at the same time of day. Her assistant, Mma Makutsi, newly engaged, is having growing pains in her job and has an assignment locating the culprit for a client's missing office supplies. Even Mma Ramotswe's husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, owner of Tlokweng Road Speedy Motors, gets in on the sleuthing taking his first case. Throughout the mystery, McCall Smith creates a wonderful sense of place for Botswana and endearing characters. A solid addition to the long-running series.
