Just One Damned Thing After Another

Just One Damned Thing After Another

The first book in the bestselling Chronicles of St Mary’s series which follows a group of tea-soaked disaster magnets as they hurtle their way around History. If you love Jasper Fforde or Ben Aaronovitch, you won’t be able to resist Jodi Taylor.

Time Travel meets History in this explosive bestselling adventure series.

‘So tell me, Dr Maxwell, if the whole of History lay before you … where would you go? What would you like to witness?’

When Madeleine Maxwell is recruited by the St Mary’s Institute of Historical Research, she discovers the historians there don’t just study the past – they revisit it.

But one wrong move and History will fight back – to the death. And she soon discovers it’s not just History she’s fighting…
