Jill Scott has her hands full with yet another mystery this week on her new HBO show, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency – and PEOPLE.com has a sneak peek of the episode.

In the clip, Scott’s character, Private investigator Precious Ramotswe, seeks help from her admiring friend JLB (Lucien Msamati) in his car repair shop after encountering a deadly snake while driving – and makes a surprise discovery.

Of course, Precious has more than just venom on her mind: She has several cases to solve. One involves a frightened shopkeeper, who can’t sleep. Another is about a “two o’clock doctor,” whose patients keep dying on Fridays at 2 p.m. Plus, she looks into a possible poisoning. Tune in to watch Precious get to the bottom of these mysteries.
