Publisher's Summary

Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a hard-boiled egg!

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past, without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive; he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his young self to be a good copper, and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem, though: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future.

This is a Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, rebels, secret policemen, and other children of the revolution.

What the Critics Say

"British author Pratchett's storytelling, a clever blend of Monty Pythonesque humor and Big Questions about morality and the workings of the universe, is in top form...in the phenomenally bestselling Discworld series." (Publishers Weekly)
"The author's talent for comedy does not falter as he continues to set the standard for comic fantasy." (Library Journal)
"Stephen Briggs's voices add dimension to the characters while avoiding exaggeration. He brings out the satire without compromising the subtlety of the humor....The series is meant to be read aloud." (AudioFile)

    "Great Discworld Classic, with Leitmotif"

    Marvellous! And narrated with regional accents for every character, which not only makes them easier to recognise, but adds to the entertainment value. Who would have guessed that "Cut-my-own-throat" Dibbler has a thick South African accent for instance?



    If you know Terry Pratchett's Discworld series already, you will know what to expect, but if this book is a venture into the unknown, I would advise starting with "The Colour of Magic", the first one, as that explains what's going on. They have the ease of reading and inventiveness of Harry Potter, but with the humour and gentle satire of Flanders and Swann.
