Further Information
John Trench was born in England in 1920 and had one main series character who appeared in all the novels bar the last one, Martin Cotterell. He is an archaeologist which certainly gives the character scope to be plotted outside of the normal boxes. The author does indeed do that, with quality background, characters and plotting. The style is traditional English and every bit as good as many of the better known names, and in many cases better.
