Behind the seemingly innocuous facade of St. Mary's Institute of Historical Research, a different kind of academic work is taking place. Just don't call it time travel -these historians investigate major historical events in contemporary time. And they aren't your harmless eccentrics either; a more accurate description, as they ricochet around history, might be unintentional disaster-magnets.

From Tudor England to the burning city of Persepolis, from a medieval St. Mary's under siege to Victorian Rushford and a very nasty case of gaol fever, Max is struggling to keep her private life intact. There's an ambitious programme hindered by giant teapots, plus Mrs. Midgely's objection to dead hamsters in her airing cupboard, and Mr. Markham's stubborn refusal to reveal his exact marital status.

And as if that's not enough-the unfortunately not leprosy-laden Malcolm Halcombe is back. Admittedly, none of this is the most secure platform from which to launch an initiative to bring down the renegade Clive Ronan, but hey-what's the worst that could happen?

Jodi Taylor is, and always has been, a history nut. Her Chronicles of St. Mary's, a wild mix of history, adventure, comedy, romance, tragedy, and anything else the author could think of, began as a self-published book entitled Just One Damned Thing After Another. It's now a bestselling, wildly addictive series.

Reviews for Argumentation of Historians (#9 Chronicles of St Marys)

The ninth novel in Taylor's impressively complex and entertaining time travel series is a kaleidoscope of sensation filled with passion, intrigue, humor, and heartbreak. . . . Readers new to the series will fall in love with it and eagerly hunt down the previous installments, and series fans will be well pleased. --Publishers Weekly, starred review The book crosses several genres and excels at every one. Its prose flows beautifully whether it is explaining unusual tech, setting historical scenes, or building up the various romantic connections in the story. Humor is strong and varies between dry wit, over-the-top puns, and flat-out slapstick antics. An Argumentation of Historians is a witty and emotional adventure, filled with humor and heart. It will reward longtime series readers and ensnare new fans. --Foreword, 5/5
