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.

When Josie joins the circus, Daniel realizes that his visions are coming true, but he still cannot stop the terrible fire that he had foreseen. In the aftermath he is snatched away - taken to London, gagged and bound, and he must find a way to escape. But could the city be the place to finally discover the truth behind his birth?
