Beka wants to be a member of the Provost's Guard, and she's good at her job, but there are more than the usual problems plaguing the rough part of town in which Beka lives. With an unusual magical heritage, Beka is being followed by the ghosts of children and workers who've been murdered as part of the mysterious activities that have been taking place. In such a poor and dangerous part of town, the Guard is always overwhelmed and underpaid, but Beka is determined to bring justice to those who are being hurt.

It was interesting to see a Tamora Pierce story set among the poorest in Corus instead of the nobility. I also enjoyed the moral ambiguity among the people considered to be "Rats" and the richness of the relationships between them at the lawful. I've enjoyed Beka's story so far.
