It's a mystery. It's a who done it. It's a crime thriller. It's all of these things and more.
A theft, a murder, a vampire joining The Watch. Mr Vimes is going to go spare!
We have Dwarves keeping secrets that even Captain Carrot is struggling to get them to reveal and the last person you expect to help crack the mystery is Sybil. We have strippers, pole dancing clubs, Nobby dating a stunner, The Breccia helping The Watch and many other strange ideas that really work well together.
We get to meet Vimes as a father and a madman. Its a great mystery. Its a great crime thriller. Its even a good chase story. So many seemingly unconnected threads are finally drawn together in a very good conclusion that feels very satisfying.
Good for a re-read as well, always new things to find in this.
I reckon that you are Terry Pratchet in disguise and this is an evening of book promotion... LOL good review albeit short. Thanks. J.
