Night Watch (Discworld Novel 29)

Written by Terry Pratchett

Part of the Discworld Novels Series

Night Watch (Discworld Novel 29) Synopsis

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck... Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive, because he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his younger self how to be a good copper and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future... A Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, ladies of negotiable affection, rebels, secret policemen and other children of the revolution. Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a Hard-boiled Egg!

Night Watch (Discworld Novel 29) Press Reviews

'The best Discworld book in the whole world ever. Until next time' * SFX * 'He is a satirist of enormous talent... His jokes slide under your skin as swiftly as a hypodermic syringe, leaving you giggling helplessly' * The Times * Terry Pratchett is one of the great inventors of secondary - or imaginative or alternative - worlds. He has the real energy of the primary storyteller -- A.S. Byatt * The Times * He would be amusing in any form, and his spectacular inventiveness makes the Discworld series one of the perennial joys of modern fiction * Mail on Sunday * He will remain an enduring, endearing presence in comic literature * Guardian *
