I'm currently reading Pirate Vishnu by Gigi Pandian. This is the second book in the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery series. Recovering from her adventures in Artifact, Jaya is excited to see Lane (whom she encountered in the first book in the series) only to find him rebuff her and disappear. She is also approached my a man with a treasure map demanding her help. He claims that the stories of her granduncle are not true-he didn't die a hero in the San Francisco earthquake, instead he stole treasure from this man's family and buried it! To make matters more complicated, Jaya is given the map, the man gets murdered, Jaya gets mugged and winds up the number 1 suspect.
Pandian tells two stories in Pirate Vishnu, the current tale of Jaya and the story of her Granduncle Anand. I'm enthralled by both stories. I'm also pleased to be learning more about Jaya's friends and co-workers, especially Sanjay and Tamarind.
