Burials, bones and bandits – not what Alicia and Chris Mallory are expecting when spring finally arrives in Dunbarton.
In the aftermath of a violent storm, Chris and Alicia come across fossilized dinosaur bones in a lakeside rock fall. Before long, Chris’ sister, anthropologist Dr. Penny Mallory, arrives to head up an archaeological dig.
Despite their best efforts to keep it a secret, news of the discovery gets out and it’s not long before members of the shadowy underworld of antiquities theft and trafficking take notice.
Two old foes return to Dunbarton and the chase is on to save the momentous find from disappearing into the murky haunts of the illegal antiquities trade. Who can the Mallorys trust? Which of these two villains is the Chameleon and which is a dragon bent on increasing his hoard?
Will Alicia and Chris manage to play the winning hand in a life-and-death game or will they come to rue the truth in Shakespeare’s advice, “Come not between the dragon and his wrath.”?
