In an anachronistic dream, Booth is a cat-burglar/master jewel thief who donates the proceeds to fellow war veterans. Breaking in to rob socialite Eva, he finds her burnt corpse in the safe. Brennan is a pioneer female LAPD detective, whose father Max, the commissioner, fires her for maintaining Booth didn't murder Eva. The pair teams up to prove the authorities wrong and turn to paleontology professor Jack Hodgins and his assistant Clark Edison to invent the forensic use of archaeological methods. Dandy millionaire James Aubrey is murdered while informing them about Eve, reporter Wendell Bray keeps the case in the spotlight.
