In this series launch, historian Jaya Jones receives a mysterious package containing a jewel-encrusted Indian artifact sent by an old lover the same day he dies in a supposed accident in Scotland. Traveling from San Francisco to London to the Scottish Highlands, Jaya follows hints from her late lover's note to reach a remote archaeological dig. When a member of the crew is murdered, Jaya must figure out which of the scholars vying for her affections might be the love of her life—and which is a killer. Pandian (The Accidental Alchemist) creates a light and humorous story. The plot twists and turns, preventing the listener from solving the mystery until the final chapter. Well read by Allyson Ryan, this book will appeal to mystery fans.
VERDICT Recommended to fans of capers and international mysteries.
