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 sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin 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.

Quite a bit of fun. My first Terry Pratchett novel and I appreciated his writing style. It reminded me vaguely of Hitchiker's Guide though not so thick on the humor. I really liked the lead character, the supporting characters, the dialog, and just generally the world. The concept of divides between...
Nearly the last book in the City Watch series, alas. I liked it a lot (and especially enjoyed Young Sam’s favorite book), but it doesn’t have the gravitas or emotional heft of Night Watch. On the other hand, I wasn’t expecting it to.
