Synopsis

Praise for Mary Malloy's The Wandering Heart:

"An impressive fiction debut. . . . Malloy mixes history and fantasy with flair and delivers a wonderfully satisfying puzzler."—Publishers Weekly

"A fabulous thriller. . . . A modern psychological tale with strong implications of horror."—MBR The Bookwatch

"Mystery à la Gothic. . . . Historian Malloy does her research proud."—Mystery Scene

The second book in the Lizzie Manning trilogy. Following the path of a medieval pilgrimage, historian Lizzie Manning finds unexpected danger. Chaucer may have based his Wife of Bath on a real woman, whose descendant holds certain artifacts, but will the investigation lead to something more sinister? Are the bones of St. Thomas Becket, believed to have been destroyed nearly six hundred years ago, hidden in Canterbury Cathedral, and is someone willing to kill to protect the secret?

Mary Malloy is the author of four maritime history books, including Devil on the Deep Blue Sea, which won the 2006 John Lyman Book Award for best maritime biography. Her first historical mystery The Wandering Heart introduced historian Lizzie Manning. Malloy has a PhD from Brown University and teaches maritime history at the Sea Education Association in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and Museum Studies at Harvard University.

Malloy loads her less than suspenseful second Lizzie Manning mystery (after 2009’s The Wandering Heart) with literary history, not all of which is relevant.
