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
I can't give anything like a sensible review for these books anymore. They're like crack - I'm totally addicted, can't say no, and I inhale these books in big sweeping breaths. Argumentation does not disappoint.
Max & Co. decide to lay a trap for the dastardly Clive Ronan, but he didn't get his reputation for nothing. As expected, things go spectacularly wrong. Taylor manages to pile on the heartache and the belly laughs in equal measure. Oh, and still delivers twists and shocking suprises. N ...more
I laughed. I cried. I gasped.
As always, I can rely on St Mary’s to spin a good yarn and deliver an excellent story. This time we find Max, on her own and without any chance of rescue, in desperate need of help. I don’t want to expand on the plot too much, as I think this is best enjoyed ‘blind’, but trust me - it’s as good as ever. The new characters, especially William, are thoughtfully developed to the point where I really grew quite attached to for all of them in such a short space of time. ...more
This is a one click pre-order for me as are all the Chronicles of St. Mary's books! Can't wait to read it!
Another excellent offering from Jodi Taylor and she just goes from strength to strength. The book seems to have three distinct phases and I loved them all. It's a real cliff hanger and I didn't see it coming. If you haven't discovered this author yet, what are you doing? Drop everything now and go read this series.
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!
It's been a while since I've been at St. Mary's. True, I've kept up with the short stories as they are usually sweet in a way, but feel no guilt over having skipped #8. Maybe some day I'll feel strong enough to read it. Why I haven't so far? Well, I can get quite emotional about characters and the disaster magnets that are the historians, techies, R&D and security staff here are very close to my heart. The series has always been dramatic and an emotional rollercoaster but things happen in bo ...more
Love this series and this was no exception. Huge fun twist at the end of this one and cannot wait for the next. Max starts off with great plans to catch Ronan after bumping into Ellis of the Time Police on a nice simple jump to see Henry the 8th get knocked off his horse and possibly turned into a tyrant with a head injury. Its St Marys so of course they go not according to plan. Liked the jump to old St Mary's as well. Lots of good personal growth too among lots of folks. As usual highly entert ...more
