Maskerade: (Discworld Novel 18)

Terry Pratchett (Author)

Description

'Cracking dialogue, compelling illogic and unchained whimsy . . .' Sunday Times

The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .

What sort of person sits down and writes a maniacal laugh? And all those exclamation marks, you notice? Five? A sure sign of someone who wears his underpants on his head. Opera can do that to a man . . .

It can also bring Death. And plenty of it. In unpleasant variations.

This isn't real life - it's worse. This is the Opera House, Ankh-Morpork . . . a huge, rambling building where innocent young sopranos are being targeted by a strangely familiar evil mastermind in a mask and evening dress and with a penchant for lurking in shadows and occasional murder.

But Granny Weatherwax , Discworld's most formidable witch, is in the audience. And she doesn't hold with that sort of thing . There's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evenin's entertainment with murders you can really hum to) and the show MUST go on.
