From Publishers Weekly

Jan 26, 2015 – In Pandian s lively and humorous third Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery (after 2014 s Private Vishnu), a letter and plane ticket purportedly from former art thief Lane Peters sends San Francisco history professor Jaya to Paris. There, one of Lane s former associates forces him into a plot to rob the Louvre; Jaya must reluctantly insist on participating. When Jaya realizes the significance of the artifact to be stolen a page from an illuminated manuscript she and Lane determine to thwart the others involved in the theft. A coded message from Sanjay, Jaya s magician friend back in San Francisco, helps her locate S bastien: a remarkably energetic 90-year-old with a brilliant mind, a houseful of amazing automatons, and a set of invaluable skills to help them in their quest. Charming characters, a hint of romantic conflict, and just the right amount of danger will garner more fans for this cozy series.
