Publisher's Summary

It’s Christmas again at St Mary's and time for Max’s obligatory illegal jump. On this occasion, however, they’re right up against it.

A loaded gun has been left behind in Ancient Egypt, and it’s up to them to retrieve it before anyone accidentally blows their own head off, thus affecting the timeline for centuries to come.

And as if that’s not enough, someone (Max) has inadvertently poisoned Mr Markham. It’s hot, they’re running out of supplies, they can’t find the gun and it’s all going horribly wrong. Again.

Fantastic for fans of the series

I very rarely give short stories 5 stars but this one was absolutely perfect for what it was-- a small snippet of life at St. Mary's. Hilarious as usual. A great way to get me even more excited for the release of the next book in a few days. And it was free which makes it even better! A wonderful way for fans of the series to spend 1+ hours. (This is not meant for people who have not read any of this series yet. Don't start with this short story. Start with book 1. You won't be sorry.)

Truly entertaining !

I adore the Chronicles St. Mary’s. I feel each character is a part of my family and I thank Jodi Taylor for bringing them to life for me in every chapter. Zara Ramm is utterly amazing once again. You will never be able to convince me that Zara isn’t the Real Max. Words can not express how delighted I am to have found this series and I pray Jodi Taylor never stops writing them. I don’t know what I would do with out them. Thank you Ms. Taylor you are a genius.

Always funny

Once again Jodi Taylor puts Max in the middle of a mess up. What makes this book enjoyable is character development. The reader learns to care about Max and the other regulars. These books are enjoyable reads and always funny although this one is a little on the slap stick side.

Cute

Cute and fun to listen to. All the loose ends were taken care of just like a short story should do and it was interesting and original.

Poor Markum...

A big ooops on the part of someone other than Max, for a change, causes the usual mayhem for Max, Petersen and Markum, but this time - oh my for Markum!! Thankfully, he is Markum the indestructible! And, have I mentioned that Leon is THE BEST! You have to listen to fully understand....

Here I go again

Well, I've said it before and this short story is no exception - it's another rousing and hilarious adventure. Best of all, it fleshes out a cliffhanger from the previous book and answers unanswered questions (as well as some unasked questions) with more grit and humor. I'm so, so glad this entire series is available on Audible! Jodi Taylor is one of my favorite authors and this book does not disappoint! Needless to say, neither does Audible or the AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

Very Enjoyable Short Story

This was a very enjoyable short story featuring Max and the regular crew. I actually enjoy the author's short stories about St. Mary's as much or maybe more than the full novels. This one is worth the read for St. Mary's fans.

Short and sweet

One hour 25 minutes of light hearted entertainment - just enough time for one jump (or one commute, in my world).

Out of sync with the books I've listened to already, but it didn't detract. Set at Christmas time, and in the usual tradition of "St Mary's Christmas chaos"...........Characters consistent with previous books, and the same light tone.

If you're a fan of the series this is just more of the same, and as a give-away from audible, you may as well download and enjoy it.

Just love st Mary's, it never disappoints

Zara Ramm brings life and humour to the superb writing of Jodi Taylor. They should teach history at school like this!

I wanted it to carry on!!

I love the series and the fact that Jodie gives her .5 books out for free is extremely generous.
I have read this book out of sequence so there were some major spoilers in it and to be honest I was a bit baffled by the time line but it wasn't a major issue. The story itself was full of the usual fun, frolics, angst and mayhem.
A thoroughly good listen and expertly read by Zara Ramm.

Great fun!

Have just discovered Jodi Taylor and her Chronicles of St Mary's - started off with the short stories and can't wait to read more of these. Not my usual choice of book but thoroughly enjoyable and I'm very glad I tried them. A fun fast paced story with good narration.

Clever Marketing and a nice introduction

A free book is always nice to have though it could be something the listener does not like. This was not the case as I thoroughly enjoyed the book and it will have the side effect that I shall be buying more of the same series

St Mary's shenanagins continue

A great short tale to entertain the reader in Ancient Egypt. Mites and bites ensue as Max tries to right a wrong gone awry.
