It happens with book number twenty, Hogfather, and continues into the twenty first novel, jlngo the fourth City Watch story, Jingo. Ankh-Morpork is visited by a Klatchian Prince and his bodyguard, Hour Ahmed his name is explained in the book, and is worth the wait!
However the clues might point to villains within the city, Vimes soon finds himself on his way to Klatch in pursuit of the real villains. The city soon is placed at war with Klatch, and placed under martial law under the command of Lord Rust.
