The Diamond of Drury Lane by Julia Golding
The Theater Royal on Drury Lane is the only home that Cat Royal has ever known. Left there as an infant, the owner and staff took her in. Smart and adventurous, Cat often finds herself in tricky situations. Believing a diamond to be hidden in the theater, Cat soon finds herself the target of a ruthless street gang, the keeper of a life-threatening secret, and friend to a couple of high-society youth. This is an action-packed mystery full of twists and turns as well as a cast of fun characters. Cat, herself, is likable and well worth cheering for. This is an A+ mystery for older kids.
