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)

    Story
    "Fun!"

    amateur-sleuth, art, murder, professor, italy

    Grabs the reader's attention and refuses to let go! Professor Jaya Jones is hot on the trail of a conundrum involving Michaelangelo, India, Italy, murder, and art thieves. The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers, but that can't begin to prepare you for all the suspense. Get your head in the game and enjoy!
    Allyson Ryan gives an exceptional performance as narrator.

    Never read the print version; no time to sit

    Well Jaya of course, the theres Sanjay and then theres Fish. How do you choose?

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    I played it in my car sterio while driving out of town. It was so good even my 10 year old son got into it and wanted to keep listening! Can't wait for the next.

    Story
    "Michelangelo's Ghost: Jaya Jones Book 4"

    I have loved Jaya Jones from the moment she stepped onto the pages of book 1. She is intelligent, independent, feisty and quirky. Best of all, this larger than life individual comes in a petite package. As I have come to expect since book 1, this story had an interesting treasure hunt with just the right amount of historical details to add flavor to the mystery.

    Jaya was reluctantly drawn into this latest treasure hunt by a professor that she felt she had wronged in the past. Her need to see this through to the end was a given, but having her straight-laced brother and his latest girlfriend accompany her was not. The hijinx these three got up to were extremely entertaining. As I read, I was feeling very pleased with myself because I figured out a few things before Jaya but, as always, Gigi had a number of unexpected twists planned.

    It was wonderful revisiting characters that I have loved from previous books and meeting new ones. I am really invested in these characters and am really rooting for Jaya and Lane. I love them as a couple and as a team. I am looking forward to the next book in the series because I have so many questions that I am hoping will get answered.

    As always, the narrator did an incredible job bringing the characters to life.
