Australian secrets and Jack the Ripper’s London keep Mel the time-travelling angel on her toes in her fifth adventure!
Rather to Mel's horror, she is teamed up for her new assignment in the nineteenth century with her best mate Lola – and her worst enemy Brice! But tensions are put aside as they all witness a scene in the Australian outback, where an old convict lies dying, burdened with a terrible secret. Then suddenly they are transported to Victorian London – and Jack the Ripper is on the prowl. Foggy streets, phoney mediums, gin shops and workhouses – Mel's really got her work cut out this time.
The angels' new mission is to watch over little Georgie and his sister Charlotte, caught up in poverty and being duped by a wicked uncle with an eye to their inheritance. Could the old convict they saw be the key to saving Georgie and his family from ruin?
On top of all this, working with Brice is getting harder for Mel. Because there's something more than friendship developing between him and Lola…
