***
One incredibly smart narrative with highly intelligent characters. I found both narrative and characters quite appealing. The plot has an interactive feeling with undeniably charismatic characters, you try to solve the mystery with them every step of the way. Fabulous historical elements cement the solidity of the storyline.

Sébastien quickly became my favorite, his zest for life, his vibrant personality jumps off the pages. Jaya possesses all the ingredients for a standout female protagonist. I like Lane but I am rooting for Sanjay. Lane’s past seems impossible to escape, truthfully he comes across as insincere in turning over a new leaf, I sense hesitation. Ghosts from his past will manage to track him down and their demands place those in his life at risk. Jaya doesn’t seem the type attracted to bad boys, she’s far too pragmatic, Sanjay’s her best man.

Exciting, fast paced, loads of fun. Very enjoyable sharp mystery.

SYNOPSIS

A thousand-year-old secret room. A sultan’s stolen treasure. A missing French priest. And an invitation to Paris to rekindle an old flame…

Historian Jaya Jones finds herself on the wrong side of the law during an art heist at the Louvre. To redeem herself, she follows clues from an illuminated manuscript that lead from the cobblestone streets of Paris to the quicksand-surrounded fortress of Mont Saint-Michel. With the help of enigmatic Lane Peters and a 90-year-old stage magician, Jaya delves into France’s colonial past in India to clear her name and catch a killer.
