The Ankh-Morpork City Night Watch find their services are once more needed to tackle a threat to their city. A threat at least as deadly as a 60-foot dragon, but mechanical and heartless to boot. It kills without compunction. It is the first “gonne” on the Discworld.
It’s the century of the Fruit Bat and modernisation and diversity have come to the Night Watch.
The original Watch – Captain Vimes, Sergeant Colon, Corporal Carrot and Corporal Nobbs – are joined by some new recruits, selected to reflect the city’s ethnic make-up – Lance Corporal Detritus (a troll) and Lance-Constables Cuddy (a dwarf). A little known fact is that both male and female dwarves have beards and the female of the species is the dominant one. This was certainly, unbeknown to the Recruiting Officer of the Watch with a diversity quota to fill. So, he was desperate for a female recruit when Angua turned up (she is a bit more diverse then most as she is werewolf – a fact the recruiter was also unaware of).
Captain Vimes is about to retire from the watch and marry Lady Ramkin and become a member of the establishment, but Sam is a copper to his bones and he is determined to solve the crime and bring order to the City before his wedding day.
There is love, laughter, terror and a good police story all wrapped up in one – we hope you enjoy.
