    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse. And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder. He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.

    Story

    As always with a Discworld novel you know what you're getting; an excellent story populated with charming (and suitably villainous as the case may be) characters. This book might be a bit predictable by Pratchett standards - there's the seemingly bumbling young man in over his head, the downtrodden race, the out of touch nobles, the irredeemably evil villain - but ultimately mediocre Terry Pratchett is still excellent by any other standard. And this one is worth reading for the characters alone.
    Yet again Stephen Briggs' narration makes the story come alive. I like reading the Discworld books on paper, but Briggs gives them a whole new dimension.
    The only reason I can think of for not getting this straight away is if you haven't read the other City Watch Discworld books, in which case you would probably want to do that before getting to this one, as I can see it being slightly less comprehensible without knowing the back story.
    In short: a must buy, as always.
