Beka has survived her Puppy year and is now a full-fledged Dog, but her vehement passion for chasing down every criminal that comes in her path has made it difficult to hang on to a partner. However, she has managed to acquire Achoo, a scent hound. When signs of colemongering (counterfeiting) arise in the city, Beka and Goodwin are sent to another city up the coast to investigate. What they quickly discover is that the colemongering operation is far worse than even they could imagine.

An excellent second entry in the series, I continued to enjoy Beka's adventures. With a fantastic mix of fantasy and mystery, the novel moves along at a steady pace. In moving the central character from her home city to another city gives the opportunity of encountering a diverse cast of new characters who are all intriguing. It also gives Beka the chance to grow as a character, not only in her career but as a person. The novel also does a great job of setting up the political implications of the central mystery and not just focusing on the counterfeiting itself. I really look forward to finding out how the arc resolves itself in the third novel. ( )

I want to dedicate this long-delayed second volume of
Beka's adventures to my assistants,
Sara Alan and Cara Coville.
I think that without them
I might have gone just plain nuts.
I would also like to dedicate this book to
Joel Sweifach, my first accountant.
Joel, you kept my ship afloat!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375814698, Hardcover)

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 be her usual “terrier” self. She’ll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals—to be a Bloodhound. . . .
