Beka Cooper is a rookie with the law-enforcing Provost's Guard, and she's been assigned to the Lower City.
His attitude of letting Day Watch catch the criminals they see annoys Beka to no end. Silsbee eventually dumps her as a partner, and she is partnered with Clara Goodwin and Matthias Tunstall, her former trainers.
Beka learns of the existence of coles, or counterfeit coins , from her friend Tansy.
As she and her partners investigate, they get word of a thin harvest, which bodes ill for the poor of the Lower City.
Beka and Pounce—a speaking constellation in the form of a cat—find Achoo, a bloodhound, being hurt by her handler. When Beka steps in to stop the abuse, she takes Achoo as her scent-hound. Meanwhile, due to the thin harvest, bread prices go up and a riot starts in the city. Beka, Goodwin and Tunstall get caught up in the fight, and Tunstall gets both of his legs broken. Pounce, for once, cannot go with her as he is actually a constellation and he must deal with some troublesome stars.
They depart and on board the ship are reacquainted with Dale Rowan, a banker who helped them during the Bread Riot.

Beka loses her temper with him, and Sir Lionel orders her sent to Rattery Prison. With the help of one of the loyal Dogs, Beka is able to escape and goes to Pearl for shelter.

Pearl and her bodyguards escape, but Beka follows them down into the city's sewers, where, with Achoo and Goodwin's help, she manages to arrest Pearl. They suffer numerous wounds, and when Beka wakes, she must face the sad reality that she and Dale must part; they live too far apart, and their jobs leave no time for each other.
She says that she is tired of being a street dog, and that desk sergeant will be the perfect position for her. The novel ends at Beka and Goodwin's welcome home party, as Beka and Tunstall agree to stay partners.

Whilst waiting for Bloodhound to come out and it has been a long wait I would eagerly read all the news from Tammy about the progression of the book. I was a little dismayed to learn that Beka would be out of Corus and in Port Caynn, therefore away from all of those much loved characters from Ter I was filled with glee when I got my advance readers copy of Bloodhound. I was a little dismayed to learn that Beka would be out of Corus and in Port Caynn, therefore away from all of those much loved characters from Terrier — Aniki, Kora, Rosto, Ersken, Tansy and et cetera.
I also learned, while she would still be with Goodwin, Tunstall would be out of the picture with broken legs! However, it turns out as it usually does , that my fears were unfounded and what I think sounds odd in summary turns out to be grand in actuality.
Bloodhound takes place sixteen months after Terrier, and the action happens over the course of almost three weeks. The book builds on what Terrier established.
There are new words introduced into the language one reason why re-reading Terrier before Bloodhound is such a good idea as well as an expansion of Dog methodology. Bloodhound is one long hunt to resolve the issue of coles being filtered into the money stream, which are raising the prices of food and causing civil panic. There are some sterling action sequences in Bloodhound, making me feel like I was actually part of the riots and chases and also making me feel that poor Beka must have had some terrible hand cramps after her long stretches of diary and report writing!
Yes, the old faithful were keenly missed at some moments during Bloodhound, but this is good for both Beka and the reader but mostly Beka, as we are selfish readers who want things Our Way!
