Pratchett sends Commander Vimes and assorted others out of Ankh-Morpork (he really likes doing that), this time on a diplomatic mission to Uberwald. The dwarves are about to hold the coronation of the new Low King and a representative is needed. Should be simple enough, even if Vimes isn't much of a diplomat. But wherever you have policemen, you have crime, and soon enough Vimes is investigating the theft of an important artifact, a murder, a disappearance and wondering just what the vampires and werewolves are up to. He'd better figure something out quick, or he could be the next victim.
A rather silly book (fat mines? Really?), which is to be expected since this is Diskworld, but perhaps a bit too silly with not quite enough bite to the humor. Not one of Pratchett's best, but not his worst either.
