Together with her former training partner Clara Goodwin she has to leave Corus to find out where the false coins, which have gotten into the moneystream and are beginning to cause an inflation, come from.

Spoiler Alert: The following section contains spoilers about Bloodhound. Rebakah Cooper is finally a full member of the Provost's Guard and has her own partner with whom she patrols the streets of the Lower City of Corus.
But she seems to have bad luck with her partners as the last one, the fourth, just asked for a reassignment. Shortly afterwards Beka rescues the scent hound Achoo from being maltreated by her present handler, Ercole Hempstead. On top of all bread prices are rising because there are rumors that the crops that year are bad. But during the riot Tunstall is hurt, leaving him unfit for work for the next weeks.
In the meantime false coins have been leaking into the Tortallan moneystream and some of the senior guards and Beka have been investigating to find out where they come from. All trails seem to lead to Port Caynn. So Beka and Goodwin are sent there to investigate. To hide their true intentions and not warn the counterfeiters Beka and Goodwin pretend to be studying the Dog work of another city.
In addition to that the rumor is spread that Beka is sent into savety after she has been attacked by Madon and Geraint Pell.
However, not all members of the local guard are as helpful as Nestor, like the Deputy Provost, Lionel of Trebond , who clearly dislikes the fact that two female Dogs have been sent to investigate and is too frightened of Pearl Skinner to do anything against her or block her actions. While Beka and Goodwin do errands and explore the city at day, they also plunge into the nightlife of Port Caynn to gamble and thus find out who passes the false coins along.
Their acquaintance with Dale and Hanse—both of whom they met at the Bread Riot—helps them with getting accustomed to the nightlife in Port Caynn and introducing them to all the popular places.
Beka eventually finds refuge with Okha Soyan in the Waterlily. From this last hideout she coordinates with Nestor and helps him to confiscate Pearl's utensiles for forging the money. Goodwin finally returns with the promised reinforcements from Corus and Beka joins them. They take down the Court of the Rogue , but Pearl manages to flee. Thus Beka sets off after her, helped by her scent hound Achoo, pursuing her through the sewers. Together with Goodwin, who catches up with her, she manages to arrest Pearl and bring her to justice.

Bloodhound (Beka Cooper)
I received this book for free from the library in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Second in the Beka Cooper fantasy series for middle-grade readers and revolving around Beka Cooper who has wanted to be a Dog since she was eight years old. Fortunately, she has her regular breakfast routine with Rosto, Aniki, Kora and Ersken, Phelan, and sometimes Tansy keeping her sane. Counterfeit coins are flooding the markets, an action so serious that even passing coles without knowing you are, is considered a heinous crime. And those in power are refusing to act.
