Waiting on Wednesday #191: The Ninja's Illusion by Gigi Pandian


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event which had been hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. I'm now linking up with "Can't Wait Wednesday" hosted over at Wishful Endings

This week I'm waiting on the 5th installment in the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mysteries, The Ninja's Illusion by Gigi Pandian. It's due to be released October 3, 2017 by Henery Press.

Publisher's synopsis:

A fabled illusion performed by a stage magician who claims to possess real supernatural powers. A treasure from the colonial era in India when international supremacies vied for power. A phantom trading ship lost over 200 years ago. And a ninja whose murderous intentions in present-day Japan connect the deeds of a long-dead trader who was much more than he seemed…
When Jaya travels from San Francisco to Japan with her stage magician best friend Sanjay—a.k.a. The Hindi Houdini—for his Japanese debut, she jumps at the chance to pursue her own research that could solve a tantalizing centuries-old mystery. 
With the colorful autumn leaves of historic Kyoto falling around her, Jaya soon loses sight of what’s real and what’s a deception. A mysterious ninja attempts sabotage on Sanjay’s trick, along with Japan’s most controversial magician, Akira. Ancient folklore blurs the lines between illusion and reality when a magician’s assistant appears to be a kitsune, a mythical fox spirit. As tricks escalate to murder, Jaya and her friends must unravel secrets hidden in the ancient capital of Japan, before one of their own becomes the next victim.
Why am I waiting on this one? The Jaya Jones mysteries just get better and better with each addition to the series. I enjoy reading about Jaya's exploits, some of which are Indiana Jones-ish. This book looks like it has a good blend of folklore and history along with action. And it's from Henery Press. They have a good line of mysteries.
