Narrated by Patrick Lawlor

Run Time: 6 hrs and 31 mins


A man gets his throat slashed by an invisible enemy, and the only witness is a drunk. Another woman swears the attacker is a goblin. Mulder is a little reluctant to hop on the investigative bandwagon, especially now that he’s saddled with a rookie agent and an interdepartmental loaner agent. He thinks the case is too normal for him, but somebody high up pulls a string and gets him assigned to the case anyway.

Additional Comments:

  • Mulder and Scully and two others are sent to New Jersey to investigate a brutal murder
  • I’ve been on a kick to hear X-files books. This is one of my favorites of the lot so far. They’re all good in different ways.
  • I may also be partial to this one because it’s set in NJ near Fort Dix.
  • I love how most of them skirt the edge of possibility. They come in a few flavors. This one falls on the government conspiracies side, rather than the horror or straight up paranormal.
  • Of the ones I’ve heard thus far, I think this is probably the most plausible so far. (Just finished Ground Zero, Whirlwind, and Ruins recently.)
  • I don’t remember everything, but the plot moved along at a steady pace. The end twist was reasonably satisfying.
  • Patrick Lawlor captures Mulder and Scully and their dynamic pretty well.
