In the beginning on the book they introduced the character Mma Ramotswe, they said that she was a good woman and a better detective and that she felt that it was her duty to help solve mysteries in others people’s lives. She also was a woman who loves Gaborone a city in Africa. With her father’s passing she had inherited herfather’s cattle. He had a big herd and her father had no other children so all of the proceeds had went to Precious because her father wanted her to have her own business.
Secondly, the next person who was introduced in the book was Happy Bapetsi who was her first client. She came asking for help because she felt that she was getting trapped by a man who was saying that he was supposedly her father.She also told Mma Ramotswe that he was sorry that he hadn’t been around her and she had been so thrilled that it was just the thought of it being her dad she let him move in.
