What to expect

IT’S A RAT-EAT-RAT WORLD . . .

Every town on Discworld knows the stories about rats and pipers, and Maurice – a streetwise tomcat – leads a band of educated ratty friends (and a stupid kid) on a nice little earner. Piper plus rats equals lots and lots of money.

Until they run across someone playing a different tune.

Now he and his rats must learn a new concept: evil . . .

Listen to a sample

Simply gripping story-telling

The Times

Great yarn written in fairly simple text

Liverpool Echo

Ethically challenging, beautifully orchestrated, philosophically opposed to the usual plot fixes of fantasy

Guardian

An astonishing novel...I marvelled at the ferociousness of the humour, and the willingness to go into dark places

Financial Times

Powerful, passionate, mordantly funny and, at one point, unbearably sad
