Book Description

 August 1, 2013

When historian Jaya Jones receives a mysterious package containing a jewel-encrusted artifact, she discovers the secrets of a lost Indian treasure may be hidden in a Scottish legend. But she’s not the only one on the trail. From San Francisco to the Highlands of Scotland, Jaya must evade a shadowy stalker as she follows hints from the hastily scrawled note to a remote archaeological dig. Helping her decipher the cryptic clues are her magician best friend, a devastatingly handsome art historian with something to hide, and a charming archaeologist running for his life. When a member of the dig's crew is murdered, Jaya must figure out which of the scholars vying for her affections might be the love of her life—and which one is a killer.

Gigi Pandian is a mystery writer and graphic designer in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a child, she was dragged around the world by her cultural anthropologist parents. She tried to escape her fate by leaving a PhD program for art school, but adventurous academics wouldn't stay out of her head. Thus was born the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt mystery series.

Gigi's first mystery novel, Artifact, was awarded the Malice Domestic Grant and named a "Best of 2012" debut mystery by Suspense Magazine. Her short fiction includes novella "Fool's Gold" in Other People's Baggage and two locked-room mystery short stories published in Fish Tales ("The Shadow of the River") and Fish Nets ("The Hindi Houdini"). Gigi blogs at and posts her mysterious photographs at
