HogfatherThe Hogfather has disappeared and Death has taken on the role of scrambling down chimneys, filling stockings, drinking sherry and saying 'HO HO HO'. His grand-daughter Susan is confused and tries to find out what is going on. An assassin and his band of cut-throats have kidnapped a tooth-fairy, and the wizards at Unseen University are called away from their seasonal festivities to try and help solve the mystery.

Not one of Pratchett's better efforts by any means. Far too convuluted and too many of those (thankfully short) would-be-philosophical passages of strange events when world meets world which don't actually add anything to the story. Not very funny either, too clever by half.
