Michelangelo's Ghost

The USA Today–bestselling author delivers “everything a mystery lover could ask for . . . not to mention dabs of authentic history and academic skullduggery” (Publishers Weekly).
 
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 . . .
 
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?
 
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.
 
“An enjoyable adventure from start to finish. A bit of Indiana Jones, but with an emphasis on art, history, and not a little stealthy investigation in places where they weren’t exactly supposed to be.” —Gumshoe Review
 
“Pandian’s sprightly prose celebrates the pleasures of Italian painting, food, and landscape. The light touch, swift pace, and verve maintained throughout the novel disguise the deeper thought and scholarship underpinning the story, which like the stage props of a conjurer, make the magic happen.” —Linda Lappin, author of Signatures in Stone
