Product description

Review

" 'Precisely balanced...excellent set pieces...a cracking comic thriller' - The Times. 'He would be amusing in any form and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction' - Mail on Sunday"

From the Back Cover

SAM VIMES IS A MAN ON THE RUN. YESTERDAY HE WAS A DUKE, A CHIEF OF POLICE AND THE AMBASSADOR TO THE MYSTERIOUS FAT-RICH COUNTRY OF UBERWALD.

Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya (don't ask). It's snowing. It's freezing. And if he can't make it through the forest to civilization there's going to be a terrible war.

But there are monsters on his trail. They're bright. They're fast. They're werewolves - and they're catching up.

The Fifth Elephant is Terry Pratchett's latest installment in the Discworld cycle, this time starring dwarfs, diplomacy, intrigue and big lumps of fat. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
