INTRODUCING A NEW LINE OF CAROLYN HART CLASSICS, each with a
new introduction by the author!
BEIJING, 1941: The ancient bones of the famed "Peking Man"
are placed in two wooden crates for shipment to the United
States to escape the invading Japanese army. The bones are
never seen again.
San Francisco, 1980s: The greatest treasure in the history
of paleontology remains missing-until a frantic stranger
named Jimmy calls on noted anthropologist Ellen Christie and
shares a scintillating secret with her: he may have the
famous bones in his possession.
After allowing Dr. Christie to examine an intriguing skull
in a dank Chinatown basement, Jimmy is forced to flee with
the evidence, a couple of violent thugs in hot pursuit. As
Ellen navigates the treachery of the city's elite criminals
along with Jimmy's brother, Dan, her dreams of academic
stardom draw closer. Unfortunately, so does danger.
