B: The Books

Ok, so I haven't read all of the literature out there, but I have read all of the novels.

I enjoy movie tie-in novels, I always have. But, what I like about the X-Files novels themselves is that they aren't episodes of the show, but have plots and characters on and introduced in the series. My favorite one is Whirlwind.

Serial killers come in all shapes and sizes, but this one is particularly puzzling. There's no pattern to the mutilated bodies that have been showing up in Albuquerque: both sexes, all races, ages, ethnic groups. There is no evidence of rape or ritual. Only one thing connects the victims. They were the victims of a natural disaster. One of the most unnatural natural disasters imaginable, leading to a most painful, most certain and most hideous death.... 

Mulder and Scully, FBI: the agency maverick and the female agent assigned to keep him in line. Their job: investigate the eerie unsolved mysteries the Bureau wants handled quietly, but quickly, before the public finds out what's really out there. And panics. The cases filed under "X."

  3. I haven't read any of the X-files novels, even though I have acquired a couple over the years - I must get round to it at some point :).

  5. That description sounds intriguing! I have never been big on the murder mystery genre, but I do like a good story premise :)

  6. Really good post, Stephanie. I love reading but I'm too slow a reader to get through all the books I'd like to.

    Wishing you all the best with the rest of the A-Z Challenge.
