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. In this, the sixth installment, take one interim Chief Training Officer, add five recruits, mix with Joan of Arc, a baby mammoth, a duplicitous Father of History, a bombed rat, Stone Age hunters, a couple of passing policemen who should have better things to do, and Dick the Turd. Stir well, bring to the boil and wait for the bang!Revue de presse:
A carnival ride through laughter and tears with a bit of time travel thrown in for spice . . . readers will be impatient for later installments ----Publisher's Weekly, starred review
Danger, romance, history, financial and academic politics, hidden agendas, dangerous assignments, characters you care about, and the feeling that more is going on than you're actually reading about. I can hardly wait for book two. Just One Damned Thing After Another is a true page-turner. ----SF Revu
Taylor does a great job of setting up an appealing cast of characters in this new series opener, most especially the intrepid Max. There is plenty of humor, lots of action, and even a touch of romance. ----Library Journal
