One of my colleagues in crime is Dana Cameron. Dana is a for-real professional archaeologist, but in her odd spare moments she also writes murder mysteries and supernaturals.
Almost inevitably one of her detectives is an archaeologist, called Emma Fielding, whose first adventure is called Site Unseen.
Site Unseen has been picked up and made into a movie for television!
Site Unseen is coming out from Hallmark in only a few days. If you want to see an archaeological detective written by someone who actually knows archaeology, this is your big chance.
Dana by the way has the most amazing New England accent, which people outside the US don't typically hear. She should totally be doing podcasts.
