New Discworld novel out in October
Fans of the wonderful Discworld series will be delighted to learn that a new novel is due for release in October.
The new Discworld novel from fantasy master Sir Terry Pratchett sees Sam Vimes investigating a countryhouse murder; Snuff is number 39 in the acclaimed Discworld novel and Sir Terry’s fiftieth book.
According to the writer of the best-selling crime novel ever to have been published in the city of Ankh-Morpork, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse.
And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.
He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.
They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
But not quite all…
