Interesting, sounds like Thud! in some ways; Vimes getting caught up in ancient crimes and rivalries beyond his remit.

Many, many bodies....sounds a bit like all the golems at the end of Making Money, but of course they're not buried in the countryside, so I'm sure that's just a trigger going off in my head more than any possible guess at the plot.

Looking forward to this.

....and.....

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, but 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, occasionally snookered and occasionally out of his mind, but not 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…

Did you know that there is already a book called "Snuff" by an author named Chuck Palahniuk which is about a porn star. I really hope Sir Terry is not doing a parody of this one!

Incidentally, since the write-ups are also of an adult nature, with some sexually explicit content, I haven't supplied any links to the reviews, etc
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I'm just curious about how Ankh-Morpork will look since they discovered that

Its a country house murder mystery! PTerry has written a country house murder mystery! (Well, Kind of......)

Vimes is no Poirot or Lord Peter Wimsey, though.

I don't know how many books we have in the house but it's a LOT. Then again... Chartered Engineer married to senior College Lecturer, and spending several months a year out of the UK pretty much cures you of watching TV, so I read a LOT. Got a whole shelf of Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and Insight Guides, apart from anything else.

I usually buy the TP hardbacks when they appear, because these days they aren't much dearer than paperbacks.

That's certainly the way I see it. They only cost around a tenner in Tesco - aand it means I don't have to wait. Of course, I always end up buying my missus a copy as well, so it's just as well they are so cheap! :lol:

sounds like another "Vimes in Uberwald" book, set against the rediscovery of Orcs/Goblins living there. Origins of Orcs and their subsequent extermination, or near-extermination, as the "ancient crime" in question. Nutt and possibly Glenda Sugarbean involved in some way.

Good opportunity for closing out the Angua/Carrot arc, which I can't help feeling involves Uberwald in some way.

Lady Margolotta and Vetinari involved in some not-fully-explained way.

Possible opportunity for a throw-away line closing out the Low King/Queen arc.

Opportunity for some sort of reconciliation involving trolls and their culture, following on from Thud!

Then again, all good murder mysteries involve misdirection and false clues...

Maybe Carrot and Angua will get married, move to Uberwald and Carrot can bring Law to the area as Commander of Bonk City Watch. :lol:

this has been discussed in another thread, but my money would be on a bitter-sweet parting of some sort.

Carrot repeatedly oversteps the mark by arresting people far outside his jurisdiction, and being rescued by Vimes and/or Vetinari.
