Sam Vimes is on a well-deserved holiday. 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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Snuff to be better than the print version?

I love audiobooks and when they're performed by an amazing narrator such as Stephen Briggs, print simply cannot compare.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Vimes, but I think his butler Willikins is just a hilarious character. He's a murder with a strict code of right and wrong and when both he and Vimes are in the scene together it just doesn't get any better than that.

Have you listened to any of Stephen Briggs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to all the Discworld books and he's as amazing in this as he has been in all of the one's he's read. I was disapointed when he took over from Nigel Planer, but after listening through them again, I have to say that I'm a Briggs-man. I can't say anything about his performance outside of the Discworld novels, however.

If you could rename Snuff, what would you call it?

I wouldn't rename it. It's the perfect impetus.
