Rachel Venora, an Italian policewoman specializing in the theft of art and archaeological artifacts, teams up with Agent Grayson Pierce of SIGMA Force, a covert U.S. organization of so-called "killer scientists" responsible for acquiring sensitive technologies, to recover the bones and confront the sinister secret society known as the Dragon Court.
