But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office.
With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin, and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him.
Oh, and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read Where's My Cow?, with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are just some things you have to do.

"He may write benign comedy but he knows how horribly complicated and exciting the Universe is." (The Times)
"Imaginative, witty and consistent ... Everything that the 30th novel in a fantasy sequence ought to be, and more." (SFX Magazine)
Yes, definitely. I am a huge fan of Pratchett's work, and Briggs brings out the best in it: laugh-out-loud humour, fun, and insight into our world and his.
Vimes. He's cynical, mistrustful, a little bit prejudiced, and plenty flawed, but for all that, he's our hero, and he's a genuinely good, genuinely likeable man who can carry the listener along with his experience.
I love Briggs' character voices; they really bring the work to life.
The denouement of this book never fails to move me as the battle between light and dark over the heart of a good man reaches its peak.

No one else should ever be allowed to read Prachett
Love the Sam Vines book and his character development. Once again Disc World is in chaos. Look for the little bits of humour, they are the best, although I wonder if the last laugh isn't on all of us!
This was another very good novel from Terry Pratchett and also a good narration. Although Pratchett writes each story to be fully self-contained, this should be read before Snuff (which I did not do). Enjoy.
