Beijing, 1941: The ancient bones of the famed "Peking Man" are shipped to the US to escape the invading Japanese army. The bones are never seen again. New York City, 1970s: a woman offers to sell the bones to an unknown man atop the Empire State Building only to disappear forever when someone takes a photograph. San Francisco, 1980s: The greatest treasure in the history of paleontology remains missing - until a frantic stranger calls on noted anthropologist Ellen Christie and shares a scintillating secret with her: he has evidence of the bones in his backpack. She becomes convinced that he is right. But when she visits his Chinatown home, Jimmy must flee with the evidence, as a couple of thugs are also after the treasure. Can Ellen really trust the stranger? And if she can't, will her own ambition lead her astray? Ellen soon discovers that the real world is greyer than the black-and-white lines of science, and the blurrier the lines, the more tempting they are to cross!
