A Wyoming mine worker discovers a human hand bone embedded in a forty million year-old coal seam. Sent to recover the bone, anthropologist Larry Krafter also unearths a human skull. Instead of receiving acclaim and setting off a review of human evolution, entrenched establishment interests seek to discredit him and his find, using whatever means possible – including murder. Dismayed by the viciousness of the attack against him, Krafter fights back. The FBI races against time to prevent the assassin from striking, and Krafter’s critics make one last attempt to silence him. A drama that will shatter your belief in the academic system.
