Publisher's Summary

"Look after the dead," said the priests, "and the dead will look after you." Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse, and indeed treasury, is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired qualification from the Guild of Assassins - and running a kingdom and basic financial acumen were not prerequisites for course entry.


What the Critics Say

"The best kind of parody: funny and smart and still a good story." (Mail on Sunday)

A delight from start to finish

Tony Robinson's reading/acting are brilliant. Paired with Pratchett's story, unsurpassable. Just wish it was unabridged.

Poor reading skills

Tony sounds like he's going to fall asleep any minute.
The book itself is perfect as expected of Terry Prachett
