"Team Weird are back causing havoc in the Time Police in this irresistible spin-off series by international bestseller Jodi Taylor, author of The Chronicles of St Mary's. If you love Doctor Who, Ben Aaronovitch and Jasper Fforde, you'll love the Time Police. "


The Time Police do not have problems. They have challenges.

Idiots who want to change history have always proved 'challenging'. But now temporal tourism is on the rise - highly illegal but highly lucrative. If you're prepared to take the risk.

To face down this threat the Time Police will despatch their toughest undercover agents. Which is fine until the unthinkable happens. Replacements are needed fast and who better than three young officers who don't even look the part?

Step forward Jane, Luke and Matthew. They may be about to graduate, but there's still plenty of time for everything to go wrong. Throw in the Versailles time slip, a covert jump to Ancient Egypt and a race against Time itself and you've got yourself an assignment worthy of Team Weird.

My Review

This is the second book in this series, i had the pleasure of reviewing the first last October.


It was so good to be back in this world and with these characters!

Luke, Jane and Matthew are newly graduating officers in the Time Police there team known as team weird, they all seem at a bit of a stalemate, as they come to the end of there training before graduation they are expected to know what department they wish to work in but non of our intrepid trio have any clue what they want and were that should be!

When a politician's daughter goes on an illegal trip to the seventeenth century and gets stuck, Team Weird are on the case, complicated by the stranded girl been an ex of Luke, the team are thrown for a loop as they uncover a major illegal underground business running tourism trips to the past.

This business does not care about the illegalities of there trips or the risk, and they have a ruthlessness that ends in the murder of 2 of Time Polices hunters.

With no leads and a lack of information the decision is made to send team wired undercover, Can the team do this? are they ready? are we?

This second book just cemented this series as one of my new favourites the characters are relatable and oh so funny.

Again packed with crazy adventures and laugh out loud moments this is the perfect read for the passionate and more casual sci fi fan, think Doctor Who mixed with Brooklyn Nine Nine!


Author Bio

Jodi Taylor is the author of the bestselling Chronicles of St Mary's series, the story of a bunch of disaster-prone historians who investigate major historical events in contemporary time. Do NOT call it time travel!

Born in Bristol and educated in Gloucester (facts both cities vigorously deny), she spent many years with her head somewhere else, much to the dismay of family, teachers and employers, before finally deciding to put all that daydreaming to good use and pick up a pen. She still has no idea what she wants to do when she grows up.

You can keep up with all the latest developments at St Mary's on her Facebook page.
