Description


A crystal skull with a deadly secret leads two women on an adventure across two continents. Virginia Davies-Clark is on special assignment for the Smithsonian, helping to secure archaeological artifacts confiscated from smugglers--treasures worth millions. Since she's prone to dangerous situations, it's no surprise when Texas is hit by a raging hurricane and she's trapped on St. John's Island. What does surprise Virginia is running into her long time friend Donna Boletti. As the women prepare to ride out the storm at the beach front resort, they stumble on Virginia's murdered partner--and a mysterious crystal skull. It doesn't take long for the killers to come after them but Donna and Virginia turn the tables and get information about the skull. After the storm passes they escape the island, then go up against a strange cast of characters as they're pulled into the world of Voodoo in New Orleans. The body count climbs as everyone fights to get their hands on the treasure. When Virginia and Donna learn the people behind the murders are headquartered in Rome, their quest continues, in Italy. The women must infiltrate a fake antiques business, and deal with a lecherous porn producer in his mansion overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Will they expose the secret of the crystal skull without having to star in one of his art films?
