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?...

Tons better than the last crazy, time-muddled, heart-breaking one.
Much more 'normal' Max
It's Book Nine in a series. If you're still reading reviews, pull the trigger already! Start at book one, Just One Damned Thing After Another, and work your way through the books. You will experience:
and that's just for the perpetratrix of the series.
All while laughing yourself sore. And note please that should you not be amused by the authorial voice, stop at once. Do not attempt to read further. You will do irreparable harm to your clearly already overloa ...more
Whilst continuing the main series arc with the intrepid historian Madeleine 'Lucy' Maxwell - Max to her friends - Taylor manages to deliver both another thrilling, humourous instalment and a very funny, tongue in cheek take on Outlander. I love this series so much. One to read and reread. My only quibble is the length of time between books, which if I'm being reasonable, isn't actually that long but I find it frustrating nevertheless. Highly recommend these fabulous time travelling historians.
These books are always enjoyable but I didn’t like the amount of time Max spent removed from St Mary’s. I missed the wider cast of characters.
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
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????
I am here for it and I am ready.
As usual, an amazing story. I read it in one sitting, going through a whole roller- coaster of emtions. Now I desperately need to read the next one!
