"Sam Vimes is a man on the run. Yesterday he was a duke, a chief of police and the ambassador to the mysterious, fat-rich country of Uberwald. Now he has nothing but his native wit and the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya (don t ask). It s snowing. It s freezing. And if he can t make it through the forest to civilization there s going to be a terrible war. But there are monsters on his trail. They re bright. They re fast. They re werewolves - and they re catching up. Sam Vimes is out of time, out of luck and already out of breath . . .
