This was an enjoyable read of short stories featuring Jaya Jones. I love reading about her adventures. These were intriguing locked room mysteries that keep you guessing. I had already read two of the tales, but I read them again. In fact, the last one, Fool’s Gold, was the one that I read in Other People’s Baggage that got me hooked on Jaya Jones several years ago.

I’m a fan of the Jaya Jones mystery series. It is like Indian Jones and Amelia Peabody rolled into one and set in a current day setting with a feisty sleuth. Jaya is a professor who seems to like to venture outside of the classroom to solve mysteries (Jones and Peabody in one!) She always seems to be put into the heart of the action whether she wants it or not (but she usually is happy to be right in the midst of it.) In this book, we are given nine short stories which feature Ms. Jones. She is given a series of “unsolvable” mysteries and guess what? Does she solve them? Well, you’ll have to read the book for yourself. While I love to get lost in one of the full novels by Gigi Pandian, it is fun to have this series of stories to read when I have only a little time. It is the same group of characters and the stories and fun. You don’t have to read the series to enjoy the stories but having the background makes them that much more fun. I’m looking forward to reading another full novel in the Jaya Jones series – hopefully this coming year! I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Edelweiss.

Pandian shows herself to be a pro at the locked room short story. Each one is different in its solution. They are tight and very interesting. And true to the form, she plays fair and gives the reader all they need, assuming they are REALLY clever, to solve the mysteries.

I love Gigi Pandian’s books. If you love we’ll-written, fun, intelligent mysteries then this is the author form you. This short story collection is a great introduction to her books. Plus, at this very busy time of the year, you have time to sit for a few minutes and read one of the stories to relax and rewind.

I forgot how enjoyable short stories can be. It has been awhile since I’ve read a collection of short stories. Probably since I read Sherlock Holmes many years ago. I forgot how enjoyable short stories can be. I have not had the pleasure to read Jaya’s other adventures and this was an enjoyable intro to Jaya and her friend Sanjay. They were fun and I liked that Sanjay had several adventures of his own. So many times I love some of the secondary characters in a series and wish to hear more about them – this was a great opportunity to do so. I have already picked up the first book in Pandian’s series and can’t wait to get started on it!
