Both cutting and laugh-out-loud, this is Sir Terry Pratchett at his best, shining a light upon the real world through a pageturning adventure across the streets of Ankh-Morpork

‘This book has so much more than most. Excellent read, absolutely worth your time’ Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind

‘Funny in a clever, scholarly, satire sort of way, with an occasional bad pun or lowbrow shot to keep you on your toes . . . If you, like me, have been living in a hole and ignoring Pratchett, then this is a good one with which to start’ Brandon Sanderson, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Stormlight Archive

‘Be a MAN in the City Watch! The City Watch needs MEN!’

But what it’s got includes Corporal Carrot (technically a dwarf), Lance-constable Cuddy (really a dwarf), Lance-constable Detritus (a troll), Lance-constable Angua (a woman… most of the time) and Corporal Nobbs (disqualified from the human race for shoving).

And they need all the help they can get. Because they’ve only got 24 hours to clean up the town and this is Ankh-Morpork we’re talking about…
