Three years have passed since Beka Cooper almost died in the sewers of Port Caynn, and she is now a respected member of the Provost's Guard. But her life takes an unexpected turn when her fiancé is killed on a slave raid. Beka is faced with a mixture of emotions as, unbeknownst to many, she was about to call the engagement off.
Beka Cooper is finally a Dog- a fully fledged member of the Provost's Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus. But there's unrest in Tortall's capital. Counterfeit coins are turning up all over the city and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. To avert a looming crisis, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, and she wont't let anything- or anyone- jeopardize her mission. To succeed she'll have to learn to sniff out the criminals- to be a bloodhound...
Beka Cooper is a trainee Dog in the Lower City. It's a tough beat, but it's where she was born. Shy Beka's talent is listening to the ghosts that the pigeons carry, the cries of the unhappy dead. When she hears of a brutal underlord committing crimes against the children of her city it is up to her and her Dogs to see justice done.
