Featuring a new theme tune composed by James Hannigan.

'There's a kind of magic in masks. Masks conceal one face, but they reveal another. The one that only comes out in darkness....'

The Opera House in Ankh-Morpork is home to music, theatrics and a harmless masked Ghost who lurks behind the scenes. But now a set of mysterious backstage murders may just stop the show.

Agnes Nitt has left her rural home of Lancre in the hopes of launching a successful singing career in the big city. The only problem is, she doesn't quite look the part. And there are two witches who would much rather she return home to join their coven.

Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg have travelled to Ankh-Morpork to convince Agnes that life as a witch is much better than one on the stage. Only now they're caught up in a murder mystery featuring masks and maniacal laughter.

And the show MUST go on . . .

'Funny, delightfully inventive, and refuses to lie down in its genre' Observer

Maskerade is the fifth book in the Witches series, but you can listen to the Discworld novels in any order.

The first book in the Discworld series - The Colour of Magic - was published in 1983. Some elements of the Discworld universe may reflect this.

Absolutely wonderful, the best reading of Terry Pratchett witches I have heard.

The phantom of the opera has never been lovingly ridiculed better. This book also contained one of my favorite quotes of all time - "What is the difference between opera and madness? ... Better scenery"

Really wonderful reading of one of the best vampire novels ever. The main narrator is incredible, and the minor cast are also terrific.
