Publisher's Summary

Max is back! New husband, new job, and a training regime that cannot fail - to go wrong!
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!
Join Max in the sixth instalment in the off-the-wall Chronicles of St Mary's series.

"[Narrator Zara] Ramm wears her characters' voices like old friends, smoothly dipping into blunt East End accents and coarser tones for the gentlemen." (AudioFile)

Another great visit with the St. Mary's historians

Any additional comments?

I always look forward to Jodi Taylor's books about St. Mary's, and I think this will be one of my favorites. It's lighter than the last couple entries have been, but as always it contains the perfect mix of adventure, pathos and especially understated British humor.

Zara Ramm does a brilliant job of making Max and all her colleagues (co-conspirators?) come alive.If you're new to the series, start at the first book. You won't regret it!

Solid entry in the series

This book takes Max through the education of a new group of St Mary's trainees. As such, it's a bit episodic with various time periods offering chances for disaster. You learn new things about some of the continuing characters. Zara Ramm's narration as always is fantastic.

Being honest

I truly think that I may be in love with these ladies. Ms Taylor writes just the most wonderful stories that are a marblecake of wry humour, intrigue, and history. Ms Ramm then bakes that cake to perfection. There are no two other people that I'd rather spend my evenings with!
