What could be safer than Ol' Saint Nick?
Displayed in Italy's Basilica di San Nicola, the bones of Saint Nicholas have been a popular tourist attraction for over a century. More, they have been reputed to be the source of miraculous healing for anyone who comes into contact with them.
When the bones are stolen, in broad daylight, the Italian government requests the aid of the FBI's Historic Crimes division. Doctor Dan Kotler, archaeologist and FBI consultant, joins his partner, Agent Roland Denzel, in a quest to find and recover the bones of Saint Nicholas, and return them to the Basilica.
No guns. No jurisdiction. No backup. Kotler and Denzel will need a Christmas miracle to get out of this one alive.
