Publisher's Summary

Koom Valley? That was where the trolls ambushed the dwarfs, or the dwarfs ambushed the trolls. It was far away. It was a long time ago. But if he doesn't solve the murder of just one dwarf, Commander Sam Vimes of Ankh-Morpork City Watch is going to see it fought again, right outside his office. With his beloved Watch crumbling around him and war-drums sounding, he must unravel every clue, outwit every assassin, and brave any darkness to find the solution. And darkness is following him. Oh...and at six o'clock every day, without fail, with no excuses, he must go home to read Where's My Cow?, with all the right farmyard noises, to his little boy. There are some things you have to do.

What the Critics Say

"Imaginative, witty, and consistent: as in consistently funny, consistently clever, and consistently surprising in its twists and turns. Thud! is everything that the 30th novel in a fantasy sequence ought to be, and more." (SFX)

Through no fault of its own...

It is Pratchett writing about the City Watch, read by Tony Robinson. It can do no wrong except...

I downloaded my previous Pratchett City Watch Novel - in fact, got into the whole audiobook thing - because I wanted to know how a song sung by the characters went. Here I was curious how they'd read 'Where's My Cow?', and not just in that first scene. I wanted to know how they'd read 'Where's My Daddy?' and I wanted to know how Detritus would do the hippo, and Cheery and all the others would do the other animals. To my horror, it was All Cut Out. So while it was still immensely enjoyable, and an absolute laugh, I would suggest that prospective buyers consider the unabridged version, even though it is impossible that it might be in any way superior to this one as it is not read by Baldrick.
