About This Item

London: Victor Gollancz, 1995. Second impression. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. 285 pp. 1995; Victor Gollanz; London. Second impression. Very good in very good unclipped dustjacket. No inscriptions. Slight bump to top and bottom of spine. Some creasing to top of dj. From the DJ blurb: " The Opera House, Ankh-Morpork... a huge rambling building, where masked figures and hooded shadows do wicked deeds in the wings... where dying the death on stage is a little bit more than a metaphor... where innocent young sopranos are lured to their destiny by an evil mastermind in a hideously deformed evening dress... Where... there's a couple of old ladies in pointy hats eating peanuts in the gods and looking up at the big chandelier and saying things like 'There's an accident waiting to happen if ever I saw one.' Yes... Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, the Discworld's greatest witches, are back for an innocent night out at the opera. So there's going to be trouble (but nevertheless a good evening's entertainment with murders you can really hum...) The 18th novel in the series.

Synopsis

The Ghost in the bone-white mask who haunts theAnkh-Morpork Opera House was always considered a benign presence -- some would even say lucky -- until he started killing people. The sudden rash of bizarre backstage deaths now threatens to mar the operatic debut of country girl Perdita X. (nee Agnes) Nitt, she of the ample body and ampler voice.Perdita's expected to hide in the chorus and sing arias out loud while a more petitely presentable soprano mouths the notes. But at least it's an escape from scheming Nanny Ogg and old Granny Weatherwax back home, who want her to join their witchy ranks.Once Granny sets her mind on something, however, it's difficult -- and often hazardous -- to dissuade her. And no opera-prowling phantom fiend is going to keep a pair of determined hags down on the farm after they've seen Ankh-Morpork.

Apologies for the shipping cost increases, but the cost of shipping hardback books has increased ridiculously, to the point where I was making a loss on some book sales, so the increase was necessary.
