An errand to deliver rare Indian artefacts turns into a deadly game for forensic archaeologist Diane Fallon when a tree slams into her car, with a human skeleton sticking from the trunk.
Then, leaving the car to investigate, she's ambushed by a shadowy stranger.
Stumbling blindly through the woods, Diane plans to take refuge at a friend's house, but there she finds him and his wife seated at their kitchen table, their throats cut from ear to ear. Just who does the skeleton belong to, why are her friends dead, and who is the killer hot on her tail?
It's up to Diane to uncover a deadly secret hidden away in the mountains by time and distance - before it's too late...
