9780552167574: Feet of Clay: A Discworld Novel (Discworld Novels)

For members of the City Watch, life consists of troubling times, linked together by periods of torpid inactivity. Now is one such troubling time. People are being murdered, but there's no trace of anything alive having been at the crime scene. Is there ever a circumstance in which you can blame the weapon not the murderer? Such philosophical questions are not the usual domain of the city's police, but they're going to have to start learning fast.

Review:

In Feet of Clay, Terry Pratchett continues the fantasy adventures on Discworld--where anything goes. Anything but murder, that is. Commander Vimes of the Watch must investigate a puzzling series of deaths, with help from various trolls and dwarfs. Pratchett's humor and excellent writing skills draw the reader effortlessly into his zany world. Feet of Clay is 19th in the series. --Blaise Selby

From the Publisher:

Royalty is like dandelions. No matter how many heads you chop off, the roots are still there underground, waiting to spring up again.

A murderer is stalking Discworld: A prowling perp who leaves behind jaunty corpses and strange-smelling tracks of curious white clay -- a grim reaper who belongs to neither the Assassins' Guild nor the Thieves' Guild.

Commander Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Guard is determined to stop this unauthorized assassin -- and to prove it, he has hired a Dwarf to help him. With the assistance of, Corporal Cheery Littlebottom, Vimes and his men (and trolls, and such) can get to the, well, bottom of anything. Even when one of the victims is murdered with a loaf of her own Battle Bread (available in convenient throwing slices, guerrilla crumpets, and defensive bagels). And even when the investigation leads to an out-of-work golem, a vampire dragon, and a vegetarian werewolf.

Such strangeness is perfectly normal in normally perfect Ankh-Morpork, the greatest of Discworld's cities, where anything can happen and therefore, naturally, always does. But when Vimes unravels a living (and, in fact, complaining) Coat-of-Arms and finds an unexpected royal clue, he is faced with a new dilemma.

Fighting crime is one thing. But what if winning means inflicting a new King on a city that does very well, thank you, with no King at all?

Whoever created humanity left in a major design flaw. The tendency to bend at the knee...

Descripción Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sorry? said Carrot. If it s just a thing, how can it commit murder? A sword is a thing - he drew his own sword; it made an almost silken sound - and of course you can t blame a sword if someone thrust it at you, sir. For Commander Vimes, Head of Ankh-Morpork City Watch, life consists of troubling times, linked together by.well, more troubling times. Right now, it s the latter. There s a werewolf with pre-lunar tension in the city, and a dwarf with attitude and a golem who s begun to think for itself, but that s just ordinary trouble. The real problem is more puzzling - people are being murdered, but there s no trace of anything alive having been at the crime scene. So Vimes not only has to find out whodunit, but howdunit too. He s not even sure what they dun. But soon as he knows what the questions are, he s going to want some answers. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780552167574
