Two years have passed since Mimi Sinclair last saw Nathan Price, a professor of paleontology. Though she finds him as handsome as ever, she notes a certain defiance in his demeanor.
Both remember the night Price stood proudly before his peers at the Crystal Palace to show them his discovery; the jawbone of a Megalosaurus reptile. But it had disappeared along with his notes. Ostracized and humiliated, Nathan is determined to prove its existence and expose the person he believes responsible for the theft: Mimis father.
Working to complete his mission, he needs Mimis expertise to sculpt a copy of the fossil for him. Though Mimi knows what happened to Nathans fossil and has no intention of telling him, she does have a plan to help him regain his stature with his fellow paleontologists.
