Aged ten, Nat is lucky enough to come to work in the Tower of London. King Edward is fighting France, but his household needs staff. The Tower contains prisoners - and a menagerie, including the King's Lion.

Big Cat Bones is the background to this tale, explaining the forensic archaeology which has discovered fascinating historical details about lynx and lion in England.

Clare O'Beara won the Arkady Renko short story competition held by Simon & Schuster in 2014 and judged by Martin Cruz Smith.
"Please congratulate Clare O'Beara for me for her clever short, short story 'London Calling.' I appreciate that she treated Arkady kindly, taking his age into consideration, and managed to cross the finish line with a different sort of twist."
- Martin Cruz Smith.
