"Shed here no tears. No Saint could die
br>More Blessed and Comforted than I."
So read the epitaph composed by Morwenna Treverra centuries ago as she followed her beloved husband, Jan, into death. The couple have been together ever since, models of pious content, in the little seaside Saxon church near the village of Maymouth. But when curious scholars arrange to open Jan Treverra's tomb, it yields not one body but two...and neither one of them is Jan Treverra.
Detective Inspector George Felse happens to be on holiday nearby; indeed, he helped to open the crypt and reveal its all too modern contents. Now, from an ancient grave, a mystery unfolds; a trail ov violence in Maymouth's history that casts shadows centuries long.

I was never quite certain where the story was going. I love it when a mystery is unpredictable.
I had no favorites -- they were all entertaining!
No tears but quite a few giggles.
