A seemingly random killing puts Ryan, Mickey and Jack on the trail of a possible cursed object – a scalpel believed to have been used by Jack the Ripper himself. Able to cut through nearly anything, it could be an incredible surgical tool…or a deadly weapon. The track the scalpel down to a Dr. Howard, who is rapidly gaining a reputation as a somewhat aloof, eccentric medical miracle worker. But the artifact hunters aren’t the only ones on his trail: a woman who has been trying to stalk Dr. Howard aims a gun at him in the hospital, but Ryan and Jack’s quick intervention make her only a would-be murderer. She has many clues about Howard’s past victims, but her obsession makes her almost as dangerous as Howard himself. AFter a scuffle with Howard, Jack is critically injured…and the man from whom he was trying to take the scalpel may now be his only hope of survival.
