I couldn't put it down and if you've read the first two books, - The Diamond of Drury Lane and Cat Amongst the Pigeons, you just have to read this one as well.
The time era of the book is set is the time of the French revolution. The main part of the story in France involves the King fleeing the country and Cat being stuck in the middle of the political scandal trying to find out what the common people think. She starts to understand the power of the people in the Kings absence and realises that the impossible may be possible. During her time in Paris, the Duke, Duchess, Lizzy and Frank are also present, as well as Pedro and Johnny. As an undercover spy acting as a ballerina, Cat along with Frank and his loyal servant Joseph, end up in the middle of the den of thieves with JF as the witty leader.Read more ›
It was amazingly different from the types of books I've read in a very good and clear for people who have problems to understand some speech.
goes to paris at the height of the french revoluntion, as a english
spy and a ballerina!
this book is just as good as the last and not to be missed, if your like me you might have clue what will happen in the next book. excellent and hilerious.
With a strange mix of the top drawer and the hoi polloi of London and Paris, with the theatre as the thing which binds it and them all together, teenage orphan adopted by Drury Lane theatre folk Cat Royal is, rather suddenly cast adrift on to London's harsh unforgiving streets after her combined home and work place, the Drury Lane theatre is knocked down to make way for a brand new building. However, her homelessness is partly the fault of usually good solid friends assuming she will be ok as she usually is during hard times, and Cat's own pride which prevents her uttering, 'What about me? Where do I go?' etc.
Her penchant for writing tales based on her own experiences and those of her friends, and for good measure, enemies and others within her limited London stamping ground, may provide a glimmer of hope. She hawks her precious manuscripts around the small publishing houses to see if she can earn money from them. It is here the tale really begins, so will have to rein in the spoilers, but basically, after being ill-used by one dubious character, and threatened by another, her friends finally show the level of concern previously amiss. Not too long after, Cat is in Paris as a correspondent for theatre impresario, Mr Sheridan. Cat blunders into Paris at the worst possible time, and is soon embroiled in all sorts of fixes.
Cat is a delightful character.Read more ›
