Beka Cooper is finally a Dog—a full-fledged member of the Provost’s Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus’s streets. But there’s unrest in Tortall’s capital. Counterfeit coins are turning up in shops all over the city, and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. The Dogs discover that gamblers are bringing the counterfeit money from Port Caynn. In Port Caynn, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, where she meets a charming banking clerk named Dale Rowan. Beka thinks she may be falling for Rowan, but she won’t let anything—or anyone—jeopardize her mission. As she heads north to an abandoned silver mine, it won’t be enough for Beka to be her usual “terrier” self. She’ll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals—to be a Bloodhound…

    " PG-13. I like so much of Tamora Pierce. But many of her characters experiment with sex before marriage. This has it. Beka is left hurt after her fun and perhaps ready to settle for the one who's wanted her all along. But this complexity of feelings and sexuality makes this not the book for younger readers. Great adventure and mystery. "

    " Another great Tamora Pierce book. I was re-reading this one to prepare to read the new book in the series, but it was just as riveting as the first time I read it. I'm excited to go read the third now! "

    " Shockingly, I have to say I thought this one was just okay. A far cry from the usual praise I heap upon Tamora Pierce I know, though I still liked it. First the good stuff: I loved that she had a queer couple and a trans person just in there matter-of-factly, though her whole "cursed by the gods to be trapped in the wrong body" explanation didn't make me that happy. Still, it's very rare that a trans character shows up in ya fiction at all, especially when it's not specifically about being trans or queer. So I love that. Also, I love it when her characters have really special relationships with animals, so this series is satisfying in that regard. The bad stuff: The romance part drove me nuts, it was so Harlequinny. EW. I kept waiting for Fabio to show up. EW. I thought she did a better job this time with the journal entry style, but it's still not my favorite, and while I appreciate that she's trying a more complicated genre with the crime-detective-procedural, 200 pages of set-up was too much for me. I didn't get really into the book until the last third, which is rare for me with Pierce. I'll definitely be reading the next one, because I'm excited for Cooper to be paired up with Tunstall, but this is my least favorite Tamora Pierce series so far. "

    " Actually I listened to this book while sewing. A fine entertaining tale featuring capable women, both good and not so good along with Ms. Pierce's impeccable world building. Makes me kinda sad as there isn't a third book in this series as I would have loved to read more about Bekka as she grew into a woman and more into being a member of the Provost's guard... "
