The third volume of the CAT ROYAL ADVENTURE series takes readers to Paris on a covert mission.

The Theater Royal is closed for renovations, so Mr. Sheridan commissions Cat to act as his spy in revolutionary Paris. Disguised as a ballerina, Cat joins the revolution, only to find that it is up to her to save her friends when they are captured as traitors. Like the previous two books in the series, "The Diamond of Drury Lane" and "Cat Among the Pigeons," "Den of Thieves" is filled with disguises, danger, drama, and, most of all, the irrepressible Cat Royal.

Praise For Den of Thieves

“Cat’s confusion about her attraction to the many young men in her life rings achingly true.” —Kirkus Reviews

“It’s her [Cat] larger-than-life spunkiness that supplies the engine for the fast-paced adventure: she’s at her zenith when telling off some criminal type in defiance of her own safety.” —Horn Book

“Cat suffers more, learns to have faith in herself, and becomes a deeper character as a result.” —School Library Journal

“Series fans will once again be treated to a look at the fiery-tempered redhead, always in trouble, who charms commoners and gentry alike.” —Booklist
