Book Two in The Chronicles of St Mary’s series by Jodi Taylor
At St Mary s Institute of Historical Research, the historians don t just study the past, they revisit it. Behind the strait-laced façade of a conventional academic institution, the secret of time travel is being used for ground-breaking and daring historical research, taking the historians on a rollercoaster ride through history. Meanwhile, within St Mary s itself, there are power struggles and intrigues worthy of a book in themselves. Max and the team visit Victorian London in search of Jack the Ripper, only to have him find them instead. From the fog-shrouded streets of 19th-century London to the Hanging Gardens of Ninevah and from the murder of Thomas à Becket to the court of Mary, Queen of Scots, follow the historians of St Mary s on their hair-raising, hilarious escapades.
