Men at Arms by Terry Pratchett
“Murder was in fact a fairly uncommon event in Ankh-Morpork, but there were a lot of suicides. Walking in the night-time alleyways of The Shades was suicide.

And he bloody well does it again ... if you know Ben Aaronvitch, you'll also know he's behind two of the very best Dr. Who serials ever ('Remembrance of the Daleks' and 'Battlefield'), and that he's been an excellent reason to read New Adventure book ...more
