A Symphony of Echoes
Dispatched to Victorian London to seek out Jack the Ripper, things go badly wrong when he finds the St Mary's historians first. Stalked through the fog-shrouded streets of Whitechapel, Max is soon running for her life. Again. And that's just the start. Max finds herself in a race against time when an old enemy is intent on destroying St Mary's. An enemy willing, if necessary, to destroy History itself. From the Hanging Gardens of Nineveh to the murder of Thomas a Becket, via an unscheduled dodo rescue mission, join the historians of St Mary's as they hurtle around History on more hilarious, hair-raising escapades.

Returning to St Mary’s for the second book in the series, to find it’s just as much fun as the first.
Like book one, everything goes wrong for the historians, as they attempt to experience historical events. The narrative continues to be fairly episodic, making for good pace and fast moving events.
There are some parts I felt I struggled to quite follow the emotional narrative, and also some of what I had thought was pretty obvious foreshadowing which never paid off. But otherwise a really fun story that I enjoyed reading.
