Summary
1950s. An eleven-year-old boy from Ceylon is sailing alone for England, and at mealtimes he is seated at the insignificant "cat's table" with two other boys and some strange fellow passengers, including a shadowy figure from the British Secret Service and a mysterious thief. The three boys rush from one wild adventure and startling discovery to another, experiencing the first stirrings of desire and spying on a notorious shackled prisoner. The secretive adult world is slowly revealed, and the prisoner's crime and fate will be a galvanizing mystery that will haunt and link them forever
