Book Description from Amazon.co.uk

The new Discworld novel from the master features the popular Sam Vimes, Commander of the City Watch.

Product Description

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. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment. They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.But not quite all...

From the Inside Flap

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. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.

They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
But not quite all...

I am a huge fan of Terry Pratchett, and have every book in the Discworld Series.  This book is number 39 and it is excellent.  Sam Vimes character is brilliant and in this adventure he takes a little holiday to the Shires with his wife and son, only to  end up in the middle of a Murder Investigation... it could only happen to Sam!  I really enjoy the subtle humour and style of the writing, and always expecting the unexpected too!

A great read, a great book.

4.5 out of 5 from me

Enjoy all that is the Discworld 

Until next time...
