A Chronicles of St Mary’s short story that is sure to entertain. If you love Jasper Fforde or Ben Aaronovitch, you won’t be able to resist Jodi Taylor. **Includes bonus St Mary’s escapades Desiccated Water and Markham and the Anal Probing – never before heard in audio – and original introductions read by the author herself** ‘Max, your father is here. He’s come to take Matthew away’
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Max’s husband met Max’s father? What would Leon do?
They’re normally a fairly amiable bunch, but this is the story of what to expect if St Mary’s doesn’t like someone. As in, really doesn’t like someone. Warning: contains a unit-wide criminal enterprise, a great deal of illegal activity and a sad misuse of public resources. All the things a father will do to protect his family.
It is also a story of revenge. Because this is payback – St Mary’s style. **Bonus stories** Desiccated Water – Professor Rapson breaks astonishing new ground with his latest feat of scientific invention.
Markham and the Anal Probing – When Markham disappears in the middle of nowhere, Max jumps to the only logical conclusion – alien abduction.
