Feet of Clay

Title: Feet of Clay
Author: Terry Pratchett

What it's about: More murders in Ankh-Morpork, and this time the signs seem to point to the golems which work silently around the city. What's worse is that the city's Patrician, Lord Vetinari, is ill, seemingly poisoned. Vimes and his coppers will have to use all the skills at their disposal to uncover the plot this time.

What I thought: This novel has a good air of creepiness to it at times, just the right feeling for it. The new characters, including Cheery and Constable Visit, are all nice additions, and Angua's difficulties make for an interesting side plot. The main mystery in this book is very nicely set up, with the clues all being there (despite Vimes' dislike of such notions). Nobby's reactions to being nobility are also very fun to read about. All in all, another solid entry in the series.

Overall: If you liked the first two, you'll enjoy Feet of Clay.
