Centinaia di cadaveri mummificati in una caverna e, al centro, un piedistallo con sopra un teschio d’oro: è questo lo spettacolo che si presenta a due esploratori all’interno di una riserva indiana nello Utah. Un’esplosione distrugge la caverna e i sospetti ricadono su Kai, una giovane attivista per i diritti dei nativi americani. La ragazza si rivolge all’unica persona in grado di dimostrare la sua innocenza, suo zio Painter Crowe, direttore della Sigma – una sezione occulta del dipartimento della Difesa statunitense – che insieme al collega Grayson Pierce inizia le indagini. Capiranno subito che quella misteriosa necropoli e il teschio sono solo il primo indizio di un segreto inquietante…
