‘DON’T PUT YOUR TRUST IN REVOLUTIONS. THEY ALWAYS COME ROUND AGAIN. THAT’S WHY THEY’RE CALLED REVOLUTIONS. PEOPLE DIE, AND NOTHING CHANGES.’
The twenty-fifth of May is an important, sombre day in Ankh-Morpork – the anniversary of one of the city’s bloodiest rebellions.
But crime stops for nothing, as Commander Sam Vimes of the City Watch knows. When a notorious serial killer emerges from hiding, the chase leads the Watch to the roofs of Unseen University where a magical storm is brewing. It’s a case of wrong place, very wrong time.
For Vimes finds himself back in his own rough, tough past with only a killer for company and a city on the brink of revolution to contend with. But he must survive, because he has a job to do: track down the murderer and change the outcome of the rebellion.
And get back to the future before his wife gives birth, of course.
All in a day’s work …
