Snuff: A Discworld Novel (Compact Disc)
New York Times Bestseller
From acclaimed author Sir Terry Pratchett, hailed as the "purely funniest English writer since Wodehouse" (Washington Post Book World), with a "satirist's instinct for the absurd and a cartoonist's eye for the telling detail" (Daily Telegraph, London), comes the 39th novel in the Discworld series, an enthralling tale of crime, class, prejudice, and punishment. This new recording is narrated by impressionist and actor Jon Culshaw, best known for BBC Radio 4's Dead Ringers. Golden Globe award-winning actor Bill Nighy reads the footnotes and Peter Serafinowicz stars as the voice of Death.
At long last, Lady Sybil has lured her husband, Sam Vimes, on a well-deserved holiday away from the crime and grime of Ankh-Morpork. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck--not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong--are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper.
Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it's not long before a body is discovered, and Sam--out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife)--must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done. As he sets off on the chase, though, he must remember to watch where he steps. . . . This is the countryside, after all, and the streets most definitely are not paved with gold.
The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Snuff is the eighth book in the City Watch series.
