I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.  Published by Henery Press Books via NetGalley.

This was my first introduction to the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt mysteries, and must say that I found the experience most enjoyable.  Jaya is the modern female version of Indiana Jones.

After visiting a professor who had taught her, Jaya is given a set of 3 note books containing drawings from an artist that might have a connection to Michelangelo and India.

When the professor dies mysteriously, Jaya is determined to follow the clues to find the artist’s lost studio near the Park of Monsters in the hills of Italy .

With plenty of twists and turns, this adventure/mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish!

I really enjoyed this book.  It was well plotted and written, with a good set of characters.  I will be going back and reading the earlier Jaya Jones mysteries in this series.

5 Stars*****


A lost work of art linking India to the Italian Renaissance. A killer hiding behind a centuries-old ghost story. And a hidden treasure in Italy’s macabre sculpture garden known as the Park of Monsters…

Filled with the unexpected twists, vivid historical details, and cross-cultural connections Pandian is known for, Michelangelo’s Ghost is the most fast-paced and spellbinding Jaya Jones novel to date.

When Jaya’s old professor dies under eerie circumstances shortly after discovering manuscripts that point to a treasure in Italy’s Park of Monsters, Jaya and her brother pick up the trail.

From San Francisco to the heart of Italy, Jaya is haunted by a ghost story inexorably linked to the masterpieces of a long-dead artist and the deeds of a modern-day murderer. Untrustworthy colleagues, disappearing boyfriends, and old enemies—who can Jaya trust when the ghost wails?
