Publisher's Summary

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 Gigi Pandian is known for, Michelangelo's Ghost is the most fast-paced and spellbinding Jaya Jones novel to date.

What the Critics Say

"This book has everything a mystery lover could ask for: ghostly presences, Italian aristocrats, jewel thieves, failed actors, sitar players, and magic tricks, not to mention dabs of authentic history and academic skullduggery." (Publishers Weekly)

If you could sum up Michelangelo's Ghost in three words, what would they be?

Good book/narration.


What did you like best about this story?

The narration is spot on and that's what I look for when I read reviews. I'll read the book if the narration is bad. I've listened to all 44 J.D. Robb's in Death series because of the excellent narration of Susan Ericksen.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes but that would be a spoiler so you'll have to listen to the book to find out.


Any additional comments?

The Jaja series are very similar to Elizabeth Peters Vicky Bliss books.

i love this series.

As with all Pandian's novels, I can go online and find the places Jaya visits and explores. I would have never known about the Monster Park in Italy. It was fascinating to see all the statues and learn about the area surrounding the park. I don't have to just visualize objects and places from her writing. I can go and actually see. That really brings each novel to life. Thank you, Gigi.
