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.

I've been Tamora Pierce's #1 Fan for like...12 years now?
She's seriously awesome, really. Anybody who hasn't read Tamora Pierce is either a dolt or doesn't listen to who's writing the best books right now. I love Pierce's new addition to her Tortall realm series, and this second one has satisfied my expectations. I expected it to be a little longer, but as I read it, I realized it was just the right length. Go Tammy! Write some more books to brighten up my colorless life!
