Read full description of the books L'ange de Whitechapel:India Selwyn Jones, jeune aristocrate fraîchement diplômée de médecine, décide de renoncer à ses privilèges pour exercer son métier dans la jungle populaire qu'est le quartier de Whitechapel. En ce début des années 1900, il n'est pourtant pas facile d'être une femme médecin, célibataire qui plus est. Dévouée à ses patients, impétueuse, avant-gardiste en matière de progrès social, India va croiser le chemin de Sid Malone, un gangster qui règne sur Londres et dont la tête est mise à prix. Partagée entre sa vocation, son futur mariage avec un éminent politicien et ses sentiments ambigus pour celui qui se prend pour un justicier, India va devoir trouver le juste équilibre entre ce que l'on attend d'elle et ce qu'elle veut vraiment.
