“Globe-trotting historian Jaya Jones is off on another treasure hunt and it’s a worthy follow-up to Gigi Pandian’s award-winning debut mystery, Artifact.” —Susan C. Shea, author of the French Village Mysteries
A century-old treasure map of San Francisco’s Barbary Coast. Sacred riches from India. Two murders, one hundred years apart. And a love triangle. . . . Historian Jaya Jones has her work cut out for her.
1906. Shortly before the Great San Francisco Earthquake, Pirate Vishnu strikes the San Francisco Bay. An ancestor of Jaya’s who came to the US from India draws a treasure map . . .
Present Day. Over a century later, the cryptic treasure map remains undeciphered. From San Francisco to the southern tip of India, Jaya pieces together her ancestor’s secrets, maneuvers a complicated love life she didn’t count on, and puts herself in the path of a killer to restore a revered treasure.
