IT'S A RAT-EAT-RAT WORLD . . .

Every town on Discworld knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice - a streetwise tomcat - leads a band of educated ratty friends (and a stupid kid) on a nice little earner. Piper plus rats equals lots and lots of money.

Review quote

Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy * Guardian * Simply gripping story-telling * The Times * Powerful, passionate, mordantly funny and, at one point, unbearably sad * Daily Telegraph * An astonishing novel...I marvelled at the ferociousness of the humour, and the willingness to go into dark places * Financial Times * Great yarn written in fairly simple text * Liverpool Echo *
