'The people next door oppress me all night long. I tell them, I work all day, a man's got to have some time to learn to play the tuba. That's oppression, that is. If I'm not under the heel of the oppressor I don't know who is.'
An aura of mean-minded resentfulness is thick in the streets of Ankh-Morpork. Insurrection is in the air. The Haves and Have-Nots are about to fall out all over again. The Have-Nots want some of their own magic. But magic in the hands of amateurs is a dangerous thing.
The City Watch is the last line of defence against such unnatural goings-on. But when even the Watch have trouble telling Right from Wrong, you know that Law and Order ain't what it used to be. But that's all about to change...

Min første Terry Pratchett bog nogensinde. Langt fra den sidste.
god introduktion til Sam Vimes og the night Guards. jeg glæder mig til at læse den næste bog og se udviklingen i disse karakterer. Det er fedt med en.mere.mysterie og krimi fokuseret serie i discworld serien.
