Summary
Mma Ramotswe?s ever-ready tiny white van has recently developed a rather disturbing noise. Of course, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni - her estimable husband and one of Botswana?s most talented mechanics - is the man to turn to for help. But Precious suspects he might simply condemn the van and replace it with something more modern. And as usual, her suspicions are well-founded : without telling her, he sells the van and saddles his wife with a new, characterless vehicle... a situation that must be remedied. And so she sets out to find the van, unaware, for the moment, that it has already been stolen from the man who bought it, making recovery a more complicated process than she had expected
