The colors of all the cattle

McCall Smith, Alexander
Genre: 
When Mma Potokwane suggests to Mma Ramotswe that she run for a seat on the Gaborone City Council Mma Ramotswe is at first reluctant. But when she learns that developers plan to build the flashy Big Fun Hotel next to a graveyard she allows herself to be persuaded. Her opponent is none other than Mma Makutsi's old nemesis Violet Sephotho who is in the pocket of the hotel developers. Although Violet is intent on using every trick in the book to secure her election Mma Ramotswe refuses to guarantee anything beyond what she can deliver; hence her slogan: 'I can't promise anything--but I shall do my best.' Meanwhile Mma Ramotswe has acquired a new client: one of her late father's old friends who was the victim of a hit-and-run accident. Charlie volunteers to be the lead investigator in the case to prove he's ready to be more than an apprentice as well as to impress a new girlfriend. With Charlie's inquiries landing him in hot water and Election Day fast approaching Mma Ramotswe will have to call upon her good humor and generosity of spirit to help the community navigate these thorny issues and to prove that honesty and compassion will always carry the day.
