Snuff by Terry Pratchett
According to the writer of the best-selling crime novel ever to have been published in the city of Ankh-Morpork, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse.
And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe. There are many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.
He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, and occasionally snookered and out of his mind, but never out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.
They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
But not quite all...
I'm a big fan of Terry Pratchett so I've of course been anxiously awaiting this release. I never expected to find it when I was browsing NetGalley though, of course I immediately requested it and did myself a little happy dance when I was accepted! For some reason it's not compatible with Kindle so I'm having to read it on my iPad which means it might take me longer to get through but that just means I can really savour the book :)
