9781624068256: Skulduggery (Carolyn Hart Classics (Audio))

Beijing, 1941: The bones of the famed ""Peking Man"" are placed in two wooden crates for shipment to the United States to escape the invading Japanese army. New York City, 1970s: a mysterious woman offers to sell the bones to an unknown man on top of the Empire State Building. But when someone takes a photograph, she makes a hasty retreat. San Francisco, 1980s: 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. But when she visits his Chinatown home, Jimmy must flee with the evidence. As Ellen and Jimmy's brother navigate the city's elite criminals, her dreams of academic stardom draw closer. Unfortunately, so does danger.

Review:

""Fans of Carolyn Hart are in for a new sort of treat with Skulduggery, an evocative and suspenseful stand-alone novel set in San Francisco. New readers will go on to her other books and discover why this mistress of mystery is, indeed, a national treasure."" - Katherine Hall Page, author of the Faith Fairchild Mystery series
""An enticing mix of engaging characters, fascinating historical details, and a runaway treasure hunt."" - Mary Kennedy, author of the Talk Radio Mystery series
""An entertaining dash through San Francisco's Chinatown with attractive detectives and a fascinating look at a real historical mystery. The authentic background - of both Peking Man and modern-day Chinatown - makes it hard to put down."" - JoAnna Carl, author of the Chocoholic Mystery series
""Readers who only know Carolyn Hart's sunlit and cheerful books will be intrigued to learn that she does dark and suspenseful ones just as well. Skulduggery combines a priceless archeological treasure with an evocative rendering of San Francisco's Chinatown in this surprising standalone."" - Margaret Maron, author of the Judge Deborah Knott series
