Publisher's Summary

Don't miss this thrilling audiobook in the series based on the award-winning television show The X-Files!

Dr. Gregory, a renowned nuclear weapons researcher, is not only dead - he's been charred to a radioactive cinder.

Since this is a death on federal property, FBI agents Mulder and Scully are hastily called in. As agents who specialize in unexplained phenomena, they are the investigators of the X-Files, strange and inexplicable cases - mysteries the FBI doesn't want solved.

When a second victim, completely unrelated to nuclear science or to Gregory, is obliterated in the New Mexico desert and then a third dies the same way in Washington, DC, Mulder and Scully begin to focus on the frightening dimensions of their task. The bizarre deaths cannot be a coincidence. And as they work to uncover the secret element that unites these deaths, it becomes clear that this twisted puzzle has fatal consequences for the entire world.

Captivating

Very good story and read well. Interesting trail of unusual locations and circumstances, with an exciting ending.

Changing writers is a slight improvement.

Anderson is a little better than Grant, but not a lot. Some of the same problems are still here. Over-describing, bad impersonations/narration rather than full cast. Story is slightly moire interesting and less offensive stereotypes. Parts of it stretch the universe but not terribly so. Still hard to get through.

X as in just plain wrong !

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I Luve the X files but this range of books is sadly lacking ive read 2 so far and both have been very disappointing...not only are the stories formulaic in worst kind of way but they lack any of the humour or thrills of the tv series the characterisations of mulder and scully are bland and lacking and the reader totally kills any resinance to the show with his dull lifeless reading he doesent even try to capture any of the subtlety of the characters we have grown to love
a real missed opportunity

Another FANTASTIC X-Files story !!! EPIC AS ALWAYS

If you are an X-Files fanatic like myself then you will enjoy this audio book immensely !!!!!
As ALWAYS I do NOT do spoilers or plot twists and try not to give to much of a books storyline away in reviews !!!
This is a true classic X-Files story though, dead scientists, strange occurrences, mysterious questions needing answers, & secret government tests,.....
All needing answers that can only be investigated by the amazing duo, that is FBI's Agents Fox Mulder & Dana Scully !!!!
Need too find out more,.........
Then I guess you will have to listen to the X-Files - Ground Zero audio book yourselves !!!!!
If you are a fan of The X-FILES, then regardless of the story (*although this is an EPICALY classic one !!!) Then this book is a MUST HAVE listen !!!!
