My ninth Discworld novel, and my fifth featuring Sam Vimes and the Night Watch. Neither worse nor better than the previous four I’d say – which means quite good. I suspect it won’t be long before I buy another Pratchett book, but just now can’t tell whether, when the moment comes, I’ll want to see more of the Watch or more of the rest of Discworld . . .

‘But you don’t know who we are!’
‘I still doubt it.’
