The facts say Vetinari is guilty. But as William de Worde learns, facts don't always tell the whole story. There's that pesky little thing called the truth ...

Review quote

"Readers who've never visited Discworld before may find themselves laughing out loud, even as they cheer on the good guys, while longtime fans are sure to call this Pratchett's best one yet." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)?More gloriously uproarious doings from Discworld. Pratchett's humor is international, satirical, devious, knowing, irreverent, unsparing and, above all, funny.?--"Kirkus Reviews "(starred review) "Humorously entertaining...subtly thought-provoking..."--"Chicago Tribune"Unadulterated fun...Witty, frequently hilarious."--"San Francisco Chronicle..".Has the energy of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and the inventiveness of "Alice in Wonderland...Birlliant!"--A.S. Byatt?Think J.R.R. Tolkien with a sharper, more satiric edge.?--"Houston Chronicle""Just consider yourself grabbed by the collar with me shouting 'you've got to read this book!"--"The Washington Post Book World""Pratchett's brand of humor has intelligence and satiric relevance? he has so much to say about the world."--"Publishers Weekly""The characters are delightful? Every page boils with humor and fantastic invention."--"Midwest Book Review"A hearty dose of comedy and genuine slapstick humor."--"Library Journal"
