TROUBLECROSS by Jessica Mann

Thea Crawford, newly liberated from a husband, comes to Cornwall (""not sunshine and clotted cream"" nor the land's end of gothic nonsense it usually is) to be a professor of archaeology. There are of course not such live finds (the story is simple and even predictable) including an old skeleton, a more recent one, and a medieval crucifix. The academic background is nicely observed and Miss Mann writes with personable sympathy and intelligence -- enough to put her at the head of her class.
