Thud!

by Terry Pratchett
£7.99   paperback  Transworld Publishers Ltd (2006)

Thud! by Terry Pratchett Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago.
 
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 everywhere, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assasin 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 some things you have to do.
 

"Thud! has a serious theme: racial intolerance. That Pratchett can explore this while still making us laugh is a tribute to the integrity of his created world... Extremely funny but it's also very near the knuckleduster."
(Scotland on Sunday)
