St. Mary's #1: Just One Damned Thing After Another
Don't call it time travel; the historians of St. Mary's just happen to investigate major historical events in contemporary time. The first thing you learn on the job is that a wrong move will lead to history fighting back - sometimes in particularly nasty ways. And as new recruit Madeleine 'Max' Maxwell soon discovers, often it's not only history they're fighting.
