This is the third book in the Beka Cooper trilogy, and Beka is a full-fledged Dog now, but it hasn't made her job with the law-enforcing Provost's Guard any easier. On this hunt, she'll need all her resources, from her bare-knuckled fighting skills to her suspiciously intelligent cat, Pounce.
About the Author
Tamora Pierce has written over twenty novels for young readers, including the wellloved Protector of the Small and Circle of Magic quartets. A former radio actress, Tammy herself narrates this full cast recording and says, In the studio I came as close as I can to shaking hands with characters who had once leaped into my mind, as if they d waited all along to talk to me. I don t think a writer can get a better gift. You can visit her on the Web at www.tamora-pierce.com.
Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, October 1, 2011:
"Pierce has long been lauded for her kickass heroines, and in Beka she has created her most compelling, complicated character...[T]his novel provides both crackerjack storytelling and an endearingly complex protagonist."
Booklist, December 1, 2011:
"This concluding title in the Beka Cooper series is the best yet, a tasty blend of detective work, romance, magic, and treachery."
