In Feet of Clay, Terry Pratchett continues the fantasy adventures on Discworld--where anything goes. Anything but murder, that is.

But when Vimes unravels a living (and, in fact, complaining) Coat-of-Arms and finds an unexpected royal clue, he is faced with a new dilemma.
Fighting crime is one thing. But what if winning means inflicting a new King on a city that does very well, thank you, with no King at all?
