Favorite Quote:  He didn't take offense, although he knew she wanted him to.  "There are lots of things that are no such thing, Licia.  Some of them aren't, some of them are."

Synopsis (Amazon):  Opening the X-Files...
Meet Mulder and Scully, FBI. The agency maverick and the female agent assigned to keep him in line.

Their job: investigate the eeriest unsolved mysteries in modern America, from pyro-psychics to death row demonics, from rampaging Sasquatches to alien invasions. The cases the Bureau wants handled quietly, but quickly, before the public finds out what's really out there. And panics. The cases filed under "X."

Review:  I loved this TV series.  I didn't actually expect this book to be as good as it was.  It surprised me.  I had forgotten just how much I love Mulder and Skully and the odd cases they investigated.  There are Goblins, also known as human chameleons, running loose.  Part of a government experiment gone awry, the Goblin in question is killing people without a trace.

Enter my two favorite FBI agents and their humorous partnership of belief and disbelief, imagination and science.  The story is a romping fast read, full of action and suspense.  It may not be the best book ever written, but it's certainly not the worst.  And, I had a blast reading it.

Review:  8 / 10
