Jingo is the twenty-first Discworld novel, and the fourth to star Sam Vimes and the Ankh-Morpork City Watch. It features an escalating conflict between Ankh-Morpork and nearby Klatch over the island of Leshp, which appears in the Circle Sea mid-way between the two nations. It also notably features the return of Leonard of Quirm in a major supporting role, and a sub-plot in which Vimes catches a glimpse of an alternate leg of the “trousers of time”.
