About the Edition

"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"Mystery a la gothic. Historian Malloy does her research proud, inserting humanity into the too-often dry history some of us suffered through in school."-Mystery Scene"Malloy's use of medieval tales, the Knights Templar history, ancient artifacts, and naval history deftly guides the reader deeper into the character and her motivations. This novel itself reads like a seafaring voyage-full of swift turns, unknown frontiers, and the desire to answer the big questions we all ask ourselves."-ForeWord"Malloy provides a terrific tense thriller."-Midwest Book ReviewProfessor Lizzie Manning is creating a centennial exhibition for her college's one hundredth anniversary. Discovering that the founder's daughter married an Italian prince with a family collection dating from the Renaissance, she travels to Bologna, where she finds ancient alligators, old master paintings, and unicorn tusks, among other rarities. But it is the unexpected mummified occupant of a sarcophagus that begs the most attention, and draws her into a mystery that spans ancient Egypt and German-occupied Italy of the 1940s. Mary Malloy is the author of The Wandering Heart and Paridise Walk, the first two Lizzie Manning Mysteries, and four maritime history books, including the award-winning Devil on the Deep Blue Sea. She 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."--

"It is the 100th anniversary of St. Patrick's College and Professor Lizzie Manning is tasked with creating a centennial exhibition to celebrate the occasion. Her research takes her to Bologna, where the daughter of the college's founder married an Italian prince with a family collection dating back to the Renaissance. Among the oddities and works of art Lizzie finds ancient alligators, old master paintings, unicorn tusks, and rarities from around the globe. But it is the mummified occupant of a sarcophagus that draws her into an unexpected mystery that reaches from ancient Egypt to German-occupied Italy in World War II"--
