Bloodhound: The Legend of Beka Cooper #2
Author: Tamora Pierce
Beka Cooper is having trouble settling into the Provost's Guard. In just five months as a full member, she's already gone through four partners. But now she's teamed up with the renowned Dog Goodwin and an even more famous dog—a scent hound named Achoo. Part of a team at last, Beka is sent on a special mission to Port Caynn. Once there, she delves deeper into the dark underworld of Tortall and learns that corruption extends beyond the Rogue's Court of criminals. It would be risky to continue to investigate, but Beka's not one to give up the scent. Even if it means ending her career . . . permanently.
