"In the enchanted city of Turai, the royal family is corrupt, the politicians can be bought, and the civic guards have better things to do than guarding. Thraxas may look unprepossessing, being overweight and not quite overbrained, and more interested in pursuit of his next glass of beer than pursuit of justice, but if you're in trouble in Turai this portly private eye is probably your only hope. At least, in normal times." "But this time, the entire city is in trouble. Years ago, the Orcs attacked Turai, and came frighteningly close to victory. Since then, the Orcs's usual internecine squabbles and feuds have kept them too divided to be a serious menace. But now a new charismatic leader has united the Orc legions under his banner and they are preparing to march on Turai." "Thraxas may have been a hero of the last Orc War (according to him) but he's intent on keeping his head down this time. Unfortunately for his preferences, he has had to take on an investigation at the war ministry. There are suspicions of treachery within the city government itself and a Senior Councilor has been murdered. And this last case may take the cake, because that's just what the murder weapon seems to be."--BOOK JACKET.
