Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a hard boiled egg!

Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.

Living in the past is hard. Dying in the past is incredibly easy. But he must survive; he has a job to do. He must track down a murderer, teach his young self to be a good copper, and change the outcome of a bloody rebellion. There's a problem: if he wins, he's got no wife, no child, no future.

This is a Discworld Tale of One City, with a full chorus of street urchins, rebels secret policemen, and other children of the revolution.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Damaris | 2/14/2014

    " I love all the Terry Pratchett discworld novels, but this is one of my favorites. The first discworld I read was good, but didn't suck me into Pratchetts in general. Now when I pick up a discworld I'm hooked before I finish the first page because I already know at least of few of the charaters and I'm anxious to find out what they're up to now! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaldna | 2/14/2014

    " much darker than previous guards books, and very heavy going in places, but sam vimes is true to form and at his most enraged. an interesting twist on the usual dscworld novels, and one that explains so very much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 2/13/2014

    " Probably my most favorite City Watch book ever. How could you turn down a double helping of Sam Vimes? "

    " The best discworld novel! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shanshad Whelan | 1/22/2014

    " I think this is Pratchett at his best right here. It certainly is some of the best Vimes character work. A few of Pratchett's books have certain scenes that make me tear up. This one has quite a few--and many, many places where I simply want to quote whole paragraphs. Marvelous, profound and so undeniably human. Thank you, Mr. Pratchett, for this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Sturt | 7/13/2009

    " I am sure that Sam Vimes = Terry Pratchett, or at least who he would love to be. Very enjoyable read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Faris | 5/7/2009

    " Love Pratchett! Pick up any 'Discworld' book, they are all good. Funny, sarcastic, sci-fi read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darren Jones | 4/2/2008

    " An unchallenging and derivative time travel novel set in the discworld universe. I didn't resent the time spent reading it but it doesn't inspire me to read any more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeremy | 6/21/2006

    " Quite good. Most of the discworld books are filled with puns, deliberate anachronisms, and the occasional brilliant line. But the story of Vimes's rebellion is more than a little touching. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 2/13/2006

    " Love Terry Pratchett--funny and odd and occasionally hard to follow, but thrilling in a cozy british way..... "
