Snuff - Terry Pratchett
Brilliant!

The visit to the Discworld countryside was outstanding. I loved the sense of strange-familiarity as I encountered the country with Sam Vimes.

I love Golden Age mysteries ... the countryside depiction was like a homage and a modern update.

The social critique was sharp, tempered by humour and compassion.

I'm a Terry Pratchett fan and this book is a great example of why I devour his work.
