SkulduggeryPaperback - 2012
The greatest treasure in the history of paleontology remains missing, the ancient bones of the famed Peking Man, until a frantic stranger named Jimmy 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 Jimmy? And if she can't, will her own ambition and her growing attraction to Jimmy's brother, Dan, lead her astray? Ellen will soon discover that the real world is greyer than the black-and-white lines of scie science and the blurrier the lines, the more fun they are to cross.
