When a baby turns up at the circus, abandoned in the lion’s cage on a wet autumn night in Smithfield, it marks the beginning of a gripping, historical adventure. Daniel’s never known anything but his life in the circus, travelling the road. It’s a life he loves; no two days the same always an adventure waiting to happen. But then something changes in him and he begins to ask questions about where he’s come from – and why he was abandoned. It marks the beginning of a roller-coaster ride of secret assignations, mistaken identity and kidnapping all revealing the dark side of London life. A page turning drama is propelled by convincing and likable characters.
