Artifact (Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery #1) (Paperback)

A Scottish legend that hides a secret. A treasure from India that vanished long ago. An unexpected package that ignites an adventure.


History professor Jaya Jones is reeling from the news of a former flame's untimely death when she receives a mysterious parcel he'd sent from abroad. Inside is a cryptic plea for help, along with a jewel-encrusted artifact hinting at a treasure from India shrouded in a Scottish legend. As she starts to unravel the mystery, the unsettling discovery of her ransacked apartment makes it clear she's not the only one on the trail.


From the iconic British Library in London to the rugged Highlands of Scotland, Jaya is pursued by a shadowy stalker as she seeks to both reveal a lost history and the identity of a murderer. Joining her in the race to decode the baffling clues are her quick-witted magician best friend, a disarmingly handsome art historian harboring his own secrets, and a charismatic archaeologist running for his life. Amidst the thrill of the chase, a troubling question arises-who among her companions might be the love of her life, and who is a cold-blooded killer?

Can Jaya solve the puzzle in time to find the long-lost treasure and make it out of Scotland alive?


Artifact is the first book in the USA Today bestselling and award-winning Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Series. If you like lighthearted mysteries filled with fascinating history and a touch of romance, then you'll love this twisty, globe-trotting caper.
