I think it's a tough call which are my favorite Discworld novels, Sam Vines or Moist Von Lipwich. That being said, Thud! is an excellent example of a Sam Vines story. And Sam is the ideal policeman, "Straight as an arrow, but not the sharpest knife in the drawer." The characters of this book are, as always, a huge part of the fun. Sam and Sybil, Brick the troll, Willickens the butler, and you can't forget Knobby Knobs.

Overview is that a dwarf is murdered in a mine, and the watch are going to get to the bottom of it whether the other dwarfs want them to or not. Along the way you meet royalty, vampires, deep-down dwarfs and a glowing green imp who remembers Vimes' appointments for him.

So basically, if you are already a fan of Pratchett, definitely read this book. If not, you might want to start earlier in the series, but it doesn't really hurt too much to pick up anywhere, and there is no question that you should start somewhere.
