Publisher's Summary

Beka Cooper is finally a Dog, a full-fledged member of the Provost's Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus' 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.

Fantastic listen

I seriously love all the Tamora Pierce books. And this one is no different. As a sequel to Terrier this book is fantastic. The story continues not long after the last one and you feel like you have never skipped a beat. I listen to this one over and over. #Audible1

great sequel

I loved the book! Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors, and this book is a fabulous example of her work. The book continues the story of Beka Cooper that was started in Terrier.

Beka's personality clearly comes out early in the book when she discusses her troubles finding a new Dog partner. Listening to Beka's troubles dealing with her first serious relationship, with a man that she's lying to and using to find counterfeiters, is entertaining and touching when she struggles to deal with the relationship ending. I'm eagerly awaiting the third book, Mastiff, to read and listen to!

Beka goes a hunting

As the second book in this series, we get to see Beka more as she is as a person and as she is without so many people watching over her. There are trials and tribulations sure, but she manages quite well without much help from others. This is also one of the first times we see Beka in a romantic way and being a typical teenage girl. It's really amusing to see her navigate romance while in the middle of a tricky hunt. As per usual with Tamora Pierce, we see Beka develop more into a strong, confident woman and beat the bad guys at their own game.

Technical difficulties

This is a five-star story but the technical glitches in the recording prevent me from giving it full marks. As of this review Audible is working on fixing the glitches in the recording. Be aware there is currently some content missing from this story.

Glitch in the record

Cuts in and out at the 13hr 30min mark. Very hard to understand what is being said.

it was pretty good.

I'm a big Tamora Pierce fan since I was a kid. these Becca Cooper books are not my favorite though. I think it might be the first person narrative, journal story telling, but I'm not sure. while the story was good I found the book lagged and I didn't necessarily feel an attachment to the characters. I will read/listen to third in series eventually but I think I need a little break from Becca Cooper.

Loved it!

I really enjoy Beka. Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors and Susan Denaker does her writing justice. The book sucks you in doesn't let go.

bloodhounds

Tamora Piece is the best. I have loved everyone of her novels. She takes the imagination to the very edge of your seat.

Worth it -if you liked the first

I think I enjoyed this one mostly because I loved the first Beka Cooper. It wasn't quite as good, it spent a lot of time on her having a sexual affair (not explicit at least) which was not necessary to the story. However, it was a nice long listen (I like to get some good hours for the credit) and I would probably be willing to hear another. But if there is another, I hope some of the original and independent spunk is put back into the character.
