Sam Vimes is a
man on the run.
Yesterday he was a duke, a chief of police and the ambassador to
the mysterious, fat-rich country of Uberwald.
Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of
Uncle Vanya (don't ask). It's snowing. It's freezing. And if he
can't make it through the forest to civilization there's going to
be a terrible war.
But there are monsters on his trail. They're bright. They're fast.
They're werewolves - and they're catching up. Sam Vimes is out of
time, out of luck and already out of breath ...
