Cat Among The PigeonsPaperback - 2010
MYSTERY, DISGUISES, AND A FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.
Welcome back to the seedy underbelly of London, in 1790. Cat Royal and her friends at the Theater Royal are getting ready for their next performance. But the star of the show may not make it to opening night. Pedro has proved to all of London that he is a brilliant musician and a gifted actor, but, according to Mr. Kingston Hawkins, Pedro is nothing more than a slave. When Cat attempts to secure Pedro's freedom, she ends up risking her own and has to go into hiding. Go undercover with Cat as she infiltrates aristocratic society one moment and Billy Shepherd's gang hideaway the next. The irrepressible Cat Royal never fails to stir up trouble--and save the day--wherever she goes.

“I ‘ope you enjoyed our little jaunt together,” Billy Shepherd said, as I wiped my hands. “I ‘ave. I’ll say one thing for you, there’s never a dull moment when you’re around, wot with everyone who meets you wantin’ to kill you.” “ I s ‘pose I should thank you for stopping Hawkins from running me through,” I said grudgingly. “Nah, don’t do that. I only did it ‘cos I didn’t want ‘im to deny me the pleasure of killin’ you meself one day. For now, you make me laugh, but when I’ve ‘ad enough of that, I’ll make sure there’s somethink special in store for you.” His stare was chilling, like a snake biding its time before the strike.
