Rating: ♨♨♨♨ 4 out of 5 cups (Jaya is one character that mystery readers would love.  She has a certain charm that makes trouble follow her around despite the fact she just wants to finish her paper and maybe eat)
Jaya Jones has just barely finished her last adventure when she is suddenly faced with another one. This time around it hits closer to home with a treasure map from a stranger who claims that her great-great uncle Anand was the maker of said map and only her can solve it. The next thing she knows, the stranger is dead and she has been pulled into the treasure hunting business once again. With the help of her friends, Jaya sets out to find out what really happened to Great Uncle Anand and the treasure lost and found? From San Francisco, to India and back, Pirate Vishnu is guaranteed to keep you guessing till the end, all the while giving the readers very interesting historical facts without bogging you down. Jaya Jones can definitely solve the mystery, travel to one end of the world to the other, try to navigate a failing romance and submit and finish her paper for publication in one breath. Well not necessarily smooth sailing but thats the fun part of her adventure. Looking forward to more Jaya Jones.

A century-old treasure map of San Francisco's Barbary Coast. Sacred riches from India. Two murders, one hundred years apart. And a love triangle... Historian Jaya Jones has her work cut out for her.

1906. Shortly before the Great San Francisco Earthquake, Pirate Vishnu strikes the San Francisco Bay. An ancestor of Jaya's who came to the U.S. from India draws a treasure map...

Present Day. Over a century later, the cryptic treasure map remains undeciphered. From San Francisco to the southern tip of India, Jaya pieces together her ancestor's secrets, maneuvers a complicated love life she didn't count on, and puts herself in the path of a killer to restore a revered treasure.
