Behind the seemingly innocuous facade of St. Marys Institute of Historical Research, a different kind of academic work is taking place. Just dont call it time travelthese historians investigate major historical events in contemporary time. And they arent your harmless eccentrics either; a more accurate description, as they ricochet around history, might be unintentional disaster-magnets.From Tudor England to the burning city of Persepolis, from a medieval St. Marys under siege to Victorian Rushford and a very nasty case of gaol fever, Max is struggling to keep her private life intact. Theres an ambitious programme hindered by giant teapots, plus Mrs. Midgelys objection to dead hamsters in her airing cupboard, and Mr. Markhams stubborn refusal to reveal his exact marital status.And as if thats not enoughthe unfortunately not leprosy-laden Malcolm Halcombe is back. Admittedly, none of this is the most secure platform from which to launch an initiative to bring down the renegade Clive Ronan, but heywhats the worst that could happen?...

An Argumentation of Historians (The Chronicles of St Mary's #9) Reviews
Buddy read with the honorary Historians (we can't be the real thing we have too much brains and sense of self preservation) of the Wednesday UF Group.
Jodi Taylor gutted us in the previous instalment so I expected a tamer as far as emotions go 9th book. Boy, was I wrong! Sure it wasn't as brutal as And the Rest is History but it had its own brand of emotional impact.
Two things really screwed with my head and my poor abused feelings. As we well know Max's plans always end in dis ...more
Great as always but with one flaw
I loved the book. Following the adventures of Max and the rest of St Mary's is always a great read, but I felt that there was a glaring possible solution to Max's main predicament that she would have thought of.
Just before the planned double trap for Roman in ancient Persia, Dr Bairstow explains to Max that he communicates with the Time Police in the future by posting a "snail mail" letter in the present. When Max is stranded in 1399, wouldn't she have tr ...more
I thought this book wasn't supposed to be out until May 1st, but whatever, I'll take it, Amazon!
Oh man. So, first of all, I laughed out loud about ten times before the book even started thanks to Taylor's introduction and character lists. And then, just...a lot of things happen! And there are shocks, and tears, and great conversations, and that ending!
Okay, but seriously, Jodi Taylor! I am so mad about (view spoiler)[poor Tim Peterson, AGAIN! Give the guy a break wouldja? (hide spoiler)]
You know you really love a series when you buy the 9th one the very day it comes out and keep reading till it's done. Time travel, historical accuracy, wacky British humor, mayhem, and a certain amount of saucy romance--these are a few of my favorite things and they're all present in the Chronicles of St. Mary's. Now, when will we get #10????
Another brilliant masterpiece!!!
I love this series of books, the sass, sarcasm and humour are brilliant. Also you unwittingly learn things! I’ve learnt more history from these books than I ever did at school.
I am here for it and I am ready.
Though it did seem a bit slow in the middle, this one was as much fun as the others in the Chronicles of St. Mary’s. The story has progressed so much, with so many people and places visited, that nostalgia & sentiment are around every corner, but that takes nothing away from a clever tale well told.
In contrast to the slightly sagging middle, the end flew by in a flash, it seemed. A little rushed but obviously necessary to tee up the next installment. (Fantastic to know that there will be one ...more
