The Lovereading4Kids comment

Den of Thieves is the thrilling third volume in the Cat Royal series that began with The Diamond of Drury Lane. As an underground reporter in Paris with men desperate for her attention, Cat finds herself homeless and caught up in the French Revolution. Rest assured, as with the first two you will be utterly captivated. It’s not essential to have read the first two before reading Den of Thieves, but you’ll be missing out on two sensational books, The Diamond of Drury Lane and Cat among the Pigeons if you do. If you’ve already read them then we know you’ll enjoy this one just as much, if not more. For more information Julia Golding titles please click here.
