Product Description

Review

 • "Bestselling, fedora-sporting, multi award-winning Knight of the Realm, creator of worlds and one of the most popular British authors on the planet, Terry Pratchett is not so much a writer as a one-man publishing phenomenon who has single-handedly re-shaped the world of fantasy fiction... satirised everything from religion to Hollywood, been adapted for stage and screen and proven beyond all doubt that a wizard's staff does indeed have a knob on the end." --SFX

From the Back Cover

For nearly three decades, Terry Pratchett has enthralled millions of fans worldwide with his irreverent, wonderfully funny satires set in the fabulously imaginative Discworld, a universe remarkably similar to our own. From sports to religion, politics to education, science to capitalism, and everything in between, Pratchett has skewered sacred cows with both laughter and wisdom, and exposed our warts, foibles, and eccentricities in a unique, entertaining, and ultimately serious way.

At long last, Lady Sybil has lured her husband, Sam Vimes, on a well-deserved holiday away from the crime and grime of Ankh-Morpork. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck—not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong—are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper.

Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam—out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife)—must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done. As he sets off on the chase, though, he must remember to watch where he steps. . . . This is the countryside, after all, and the streets most definitely are not paved with gold.

Hailed as the “purely funniest English writer since Wodehouse” (Washington Post Book World), with a “satirist’s instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist’s eye for the telling detail” (Daily Telegraph, London), Terry Pratchett offers a novel of crime, class, prejudice, and punishment that shows this master at his dazzling best.

Pratchett continues to keep us enthralled with colourful characters, great humour and an amazing knowledge of history, myth and culture that he tinkers with just enough to make us feel clever that we guess what he is referencing.
In 39 novels he has never once disappointed and the Discworld's favourite copper continues to save the day while always making it home to read a bedtime story to his son. Looking forward to reading #40.

You can't go wrong with Pratchett and Vimes put together. This book was plain fun. I love his entire series, and was grateful to have yet another addition in which to dive.

It's a bit weaker compared to the other Night's Watch books, but still an entertaining experience. 90% of the story takes place outside of Anhk-Morpork, so if you're only into Discworld for the city, you may want to skip this one.

Yet another entertaining and fun Discworld book. Sam Vimes is one of my favourite Discworld characters and it was a pleasant change to see him handle crime outside of the city of Anhk Morpork
