Waiting on Wednesday #61 - Quicksand by Gigi Pandian

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I am waiting on Quicksand by Gigi Pandian. This is the third Jaya Jones mystery from Henery Press. It's due to come out March 10, 2015. 

The Jaya Jones mysteries are a little bit historical, but also part Indiana Jones-ish. She has a mystery to solve in the present day, but it is always affected by some sort of history that is often crucial to her solving the mystery. This mystery takes place in France. Settings include places like The Louvre and Mont Saint-Michel.

From the publisher: 
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.
I am looking forward to it because I enjoyed the first two Jaya Jones mysteries. And because I like the Indiana Jones-ish quality to these mysteries.
What book are you waiting on this Wednesday? Tell me in the comments or share a link. I look forward to hearing from you!
