London, 1790: Covent Garden’s glittering, dangerous Theatreland. Feisty orphan Cat Royal has always been a star turn at the famous Drury Lane theatre, adopted as a baby by the owner Mr Sheridan after she was found mysteriously abandoned on the theatre’s steps. She has grown up backstage among the costumes, performers, musicians and stagehands, and is treasured like a daughter by them all. But when Cat hears a rumour about a priceless diamond hidden somewhere in the theatre, she determines to solve the mystery. Little does Cat know that her curiosity will lead her into Covent Garden’s hidden world of rival gangs, boxing matches, riots, crime and intrigue – and teach her some important lessons about who she really is.
