(Discworld Novel 24)
The 24th Discworld novel - featuring dwarfs, diplomacy, intrigue and big lumps of fat.
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. Sam Vimes is out of time, out of luck and already out of breath...
“Precisely balanced . . . excellent set pieces . . . a cracking comic thriller.”
“He would be amusing in any form and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction.”
