After her adventures in Italy in Michelangelo's Ghost, historian Jaya Jones sets out for Japan where her best friend, magician Sanjay, will appear with the famous illusionist Akira, who claims to know the secret of the famous Indian rope trick. Jaya also gets caught up in the search for a secret connected to the 18th-century European trade with Japan, but it may all be a matter of staged misdirection. Pandian's fast-paced, exotic adventures featuring fascinating characters and historical treasures will appeal to young adults as well as readers who loved Elizabeth Peters's "Vicky Bliss" stories.—LH
