The multi award-winning, The Diamond of Drury Lane returns – this time in paperback! Set in 1790’s Covent Garden this book whisks you back to a bygone era and into the magic of the theatre. Cat Royal’s colourful slang and confident I’ll-tell-you-how-it-really-is, makes the story sparkle off the page. Cat Royal is an orphan who lives at the back of the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane. She mingles with the high and low of society, from the actors on stage to the lords and ladies in the stalls to the barrow boys in the grimy marketplace. The tale is packed with local colour and authentic detail. And of course there is a gripping diamond mystery.
