Newman writes engaging historical mysteries and this one is no exception. I've been reading my way through all the Catherine LeVedeur books and haven't been disappointed yet. I must admit, I found this one a bit slow going at first, but then suddendly I was hooked and hard-pressed to put it down.

When the mummified arm of St. Aldhelm is stolen from the Salisbury Cathedral in England, Catherine LeVendeur must find the lost reliquary to save those she loves. The Wandering Arm is an absorbing, richly authentic adventure.

The first novel I've read in this series. Holds together well, good research into the time period.

Third in the Catherine LeVendeur medieval mystery series, this one set in Paris. A relic has been stolen from the Salisbury Cathedral, the arm of St. Aldhelm, a Saxon bishop. Catherine and her husband Edgar are implored by her father to assist in finding it and bringing those who stole it to justice. Meanwhile, a shady member of the Jewish community appears on Elizar's doorstep asking a favor and is turned away, only to die a few days later in Elizar's basementâon top of Catherine, who had gone down there to get some beans from a crock for dinner. Suspicion against Elizar by his own people puts a big strain on family relations. Very enjoyable book in the series, difficult to put down.
