Description - The "Fifth Elephant" by Terry Pratchett
Commander Vimes is sent to wild, wintry and Transylvania-like Uberwald to establish trade links with the King of the Dwarfs but he ends up trying to stop an inter-species war. On his side, though, is a talking dog, a reformed vampyre and a self-made man. You can tell he's self-made because the stitches still show. Vimes may have arrived as Ankh-Morpork's ambassador but he soon finds it's not all golden chocolate balls. Now he's an escaped prisoner - out in the icy woods, wearing only the gloomy trousers of Uncle Vanya and being chased by a pack of fascist werewolves who don't play by the rules.
