Can't say no to a good murder mystery, especially set in a relatively familiar environment and written by such a fantastic and goofy author.

The witches are making things right (by no means could this be construed for meddling) on the Discworld again, but since Magrat is off queen-ing, they're feeling a bit short-handed. A promising candidate for the roll, Agnes Nitt, seems to have gone off to Ank-Morpork to let her alter-ego, "Perdita," shine at the one place that an over weight woman with nice hair, a great personality, and the vocal range of a T-Rex/vampire bat chimera could hope to find acceptance, or even fame: The Opera.

But people are turning up murdered, and some say they've seen a ghost in a white mask... And so, it's time for the witches to mingle with thespians again in Maskerade!
