Publisher's Summary

Not one to let being banged up in Sick Bay stop her, Max has had a brilliant idea. But she needs Markham to execute it on her behalf. The subject of this cunning plan is Peterson, struggling with another bereavement and not doing very well. What’s needed to get him through it is sympathy, sensitivity, tact and understanding. 

Step forward Mr Markham, for whom sympathy, sensitivity, etc., are things that happen to other people. Combine a fanatic from R&D, a head of Security with his own problems, a steam-pump, two historians who can’t even be in the same room as each other, some fractious Protestants and a large body of very dirty water. Told in Markham’s own words, this is the story of an intervention - St Mary’s style.

Pure delight.

Another Markham short story. Even better than My Name is Markham. One of the fastest two hour listens I've heard. Went by way too fast. A pure delight.

Cupid, steam pump and moat

Max is concerned that Peterson is depressed after first his fiance, then his quasi girlfriend were both killed. She recruits Markham to help find a way for Peterson to spend time with Langoss to see if they’re compatible. If not as lovers, then at least friends.
Seeing the first exhibition of a steam pump in action is on Langoss’ wish list, so Max sets it up with Markham overseeing. He’s able to return and give Max the Seal of Approval.
Funnies: Easy care flooring;-)!!!
Huh?: Before Cabbie!, it was Chair, Ho! Which became Cheerio!
Ramm does a good job of narration.

Another gem from Jodi Taylor<br /><br />

Once again Jodi Taylor and Zara Ramm team up to transport us to my favorite place on Earth, St Mary's. By far my favorite team on audio books.

Markham at his best

What a fun adventure and addition while we wait for the next book to come out. Despite Max being laid up, her team manages to not get killed on an adventure of their own. Fantastic sense of humor that I love about the series.

Fun!

A great St. Mary's adventure! Two historians who hate each other, matching making at it's finest and a stream engine. What could go wrong?

More St. Mary's please!

As a huge fan of the St Mary's series (and pretty much everything Jodi Taylor writes) this was a little morsel to feed my addiction. Love any story told by Markham, and though we don't see much of Max here at least the terrible cliffhanger that "Argumentation" left us with is resolved. I really loved seeing the dynamic of Markham & Max taking care of Peterson & look forward to the results of their intervention. And Zara Ramm is fabulous as always-she really is the voice of St. Mary's! One happy customer here, now just anxiously awaiting the next full length book!

Another adventure all fans will enjoy.

An absolute must for St Mary fans! And THANK YOU Audible, for having Zara Ramm narrate this short story.
A delight to listen to as always.
It follows from An Argument of Historians and

***SPOILER ALERT***

we find out that Max is recovering from the cliffhanger ending to the last novel and that Peterson will recover too.

Another excellent St Mary's book

I love the St Mary's Chronicles. The books were in my Wish List for ages, but once I'd bought that first book, I couldn't get enough. Humour, horror, Sci fi, and mystery all in one series, and with one of best narrators I've heard. Characters you come to know and love (and few you'll hate!). Definitely worth a listen, but beware, the series is very addictive!

Another proof of Murphy's Law, according to which, anything that can, could have, or will go wrong, is going wrong, all at once.

Will wet and soggy win the day?

Another delightful episode in the shenanigans at St Marys, with a clever twist, this story is told by Marcomb, what an insight into the thoughts of security about historians. A cleverly contrived plot which moves at Jodi Taylor’s usual breakneck speed not a wasted word, well worth taking time out to enjoy.
