Truth! Justice! Freedom! And a hard-boiled egg!Â Â 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, though: 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. Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards.

Any wedding is a big deal in the small village of Kilbane - even more so when the bride is a famous fashion model. It's also good for business; Siobhan O'Sullivan's bistro will be catering the three-day affair. When the drunken best man is disinvited, Siobhan's own beau, Macdara, gladly steps in. But finding the original best man murdered in the woods casts a pall over the nuptials. And when a second member of the wedding party is poisoned, Macdara goes from being best man to prime suspect. With a killer at large and a string of robberies plaguing Kilbane, Siobhan vows to clear Macdara's name. But like the bride walking down the aisle, Siobhan needs to watch her step.

It's official! Siobhan is now Garda O'Sullivan, and her five siblings couldn't be prouder. While her brother James runs Naomi's Bistro, Siobhan is doing her part to keep the village safe. Of course, Kilbane is pretty quiet compared to a place like Dublin, where Macdara Flannery has gone to be a detective sergeant. Then one night the local priest summons Siobhan to the church cemetery. There's a dead man in the graveyard - above ground. He's a stranger, but the priest has heard talk of an American tourist in town searching for an Irish ancestor. A detective sergeant is dispatched from Dublin to assist with the case, and, as fate would have it, it's Macdara. Things have been awkward between him and Siobhan since he left, but their partnership soon unearths that the victim was from Dublin, Ohio. As they dig for a motive among the gnarled roots of his family tree, long-buried secrets are unearthed. Now, they'll have to stay two steps ahead of the killer...or they'll end up with more than one foot in the grave.

This December in Kilbane, if youâre planning to warm up with a cuppa tea at Naomiâs Bistro, you may have a bit of a wait - the entire OâSullivan brood has gone off to West Cork to spend the holidays with brother Jamesâs fiancÃ©e Eliseâs family, including her grandfather, the famous orchestral conductor Enda Elliot. SiobhÃ¡n is so happy for James and Elise, but sheâs also quietly disappointed that she must put her own wedding to fellow garda Macdara Flannery on hold. Mac will have to join them later, so he can spend part of the holidays with his mam.Â When the OâSullivans learn everyone will choose a name from a hat to buy a music-related Christmas gift for someone else at the gathering, it seems like their greatest concern - until the cantankerous conductor is discovered crushed under a 90-pound harp in a local concert hall.Â With the extended family - including Endaâs much-younger new wife Leah, a virtuoso violinist - suspected in his murder, it's up to SiobhÃ¡n to ensure the guilty party faces the music. But as a snowstorm strands both families in a lavish farmhouse on a cliff, SiobhÃ¡n had better pick up the tempo before the killer orchestrates another untimely demise...

Family is everything to SiobhÃ¡n: her five siblings; her dear departed mother for whom the family business, Naomiâs Bistro, is named; and now her fiancÃ©, Macdara Flannery. So precious is her engagement that SiobhÃ¡n wants to keep it just between the two of them for a little longer.Â But Macdara is her family, which is why when his cousin Jane frantically calls for his help, SiobhÃ¡n is at his side as the two garda rush from Kilbane to the rural village where Jane and her mother have recently moved. Unfortunately, tragedy awaits them. They find Jane, who is blind, outside the cottage, in a state. Inside, Aunt Ellen lies on her bed in a fancy red dress, no longer breathing. A pillow on the floor and a nearby teacup suggest the mode of death to their trained eyes: the woman has been poisoned and smothered. Someone wanted to make sure she was dead. But who?Â Devout believers in Irish folklore, the villagers insist the cottage is cursed - built on a fairy path. It turns out Ellen Delaney was not the first to die mysteriously in this cottage. Although the townsfolk blame malevolent fairies, SiobhÃ¡n and Macdara must follow the path of a murderer all too human - but just as evil....
