Within the Opera House, fear and terror are rife. The infamous 'Opera Ghost', once considered good luck by the company, has recently been responsible for a number of terrible 'accidents': vandalism, assault … even murder …
Meanwhile, with their coven reduced to two, Nanny Ogg is very worried that Granny Weatherwax might be turning … well … black. Fortunately Granny's ire is pricked when she discovers that Nanny's rather suspect cook-book, The Joye of Snacks, has made a fortune for a publishing house in Ankh Morpork. Setting off to recover her diddled royalties, the witches become embroiled in the mystery at the Opera House … and if there's one thing Granny Weatherwax won't put up with, it's a mystery ...
