Thanks for your help,
Peter Tremayne has written a bunch of mysteries dealing with the 7th Ireland. Sister Fidelma. These are very clean and still very interesting, because of the time frame the 'science' used in the forensics is very primitive and so most is deductive reasoning.
and there is always Agatha Christie for a good cozy.
Has she tried Rex Stout? Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolf?
Nothing to bring a blush to even the most maidenly cheek in any of them (well, except for a very mild sex scene in one of the later Nicholas Blake books)
Several of the older ladies I work with like Alexander McCall Smith. I would probably classify them as cozies, but they are clean.
I don't know where you are, but if you can get hold of her you might find Ngaio Marsh worthwhile. She's a bit in the Agatha Christie vein, very theatrical, no sex and no swearing that I can remember. But she's New Zealander and I'm not sure how far her books have spread.
