 About the Book 

Rating: 4* of fiveThe Publisher Says: Book Two in the madcap time-travel series based at the St Marys Institute of Historical Research that seems to be everyones cup of tea.In the second book in the Chronicles of St Marys series, Max and the team visit Victorian London in search of Jack the Ripper, withess the murder of Archbishop Thomas a Becket in Canterbury Cathedral, and discover that dodos make a grockling noise when eating cucumber sandwiches.But they must also confront an enemy intent on destroying St Marys - an enemy willing, if necessary, to destroy History itself to do it.My Review: You know how, as youre watching Star Trek in any of its incarnations, you end up wondering pretty darn quick what the heck they keep talking about this Prime Directive for since they seem not to have any intention of following it? Yeah, that. The whole book is that. The St Marys tea-soppers are set the one really big intervention that will make History match itself. It is a matter of the survival of St Marys, so were told, so its okay to monkey with History. Kleio will approve.Getting to the magic moment is, however, quite entertaining, and the key discovery made at the end of the first book is called into play very frequently. Pay attention to the details in this book, and I assume youll want to read it after the delirious romp of #1, because some things are larded in to the chat and background that will cause a veritable street light to go on over your head when you read #3. Which I also assume youll want to read after the sobering and still very fun events of this book.So youve read #1, have you? Then click here: (view spoiler)[The team goes to Mary Queen of Scots court to fix the gargantuan error in the timeline of Elizabeth Tudor dying at the chopping block instead of Her Scottish Majesty which they discovered upon sneak-peeking the Shakespeare play that the Director coerced from the Bards pen. It is imperative, for their time to exist at all, that the error be corrected and Mary forced...or so we imagine...to marry Bothwell, which seals her doom. (hide spoiler)]
