A swashbuckling tale of mystery and adventure in old London!

Here’s a mystery in a little different package – Cat Royal is an orphan who lives behind the scenes at the Drury Lane Theater in 18th century London.  Rumor has it that a diamond is being hidden at the theater, and suddenly Cat is being followed by an ugly street gang, who wants her to steal it for them.  She is befriended by two noble-born teenagers who want to help her protect the “diamond”, and she also meets up with an African boy who’s determined not to go back to his life as a slave.  Can they get the diamond out of the country before the criminals tracking it find it first?  Check out the first in Cat Royal’s adventures and find out!
