S1E22 - Feet of Clay

Yet again someone attempts to remove Vetinari from the helm of Ankh-Morpork, but instead of strict political intrigue, this time they're using the old fashioned method--poison. As Vimes expands his heart and mind to encompass the growing ranks (and even files!) of the City Watch, the book tackles issues of identity and self-definition even more pointedly than ever. This book has it all--a VERY good trans narrative, golem, a well constructed noir-style mystery, and seizing the means of production. Especially when YOU are the means of production.
