Summary

Don't miss this thrilling book in the series based on the Emmy Award-winning television show The X-Files!
When a disease-ravaged body is found in the smoldering ruins of the federally funded DyMar genetic research lab, Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully fear that a deadly, man-made plague is on the loose. As the FBI agents investigating the "X-Files" - cases the bureau has deemed unsolvable - Mulder and Scully pursue the truth wherever it leads, even into the labyrinthine corridors of the FBI...and beyond.
Racing to contain the lethal virus before it can spread, Mulder and Scully make a chilling discovery. Before his death, Dr. David Kennessy, a hotshot cancer researcher at DyMar, had been experimenting with a promising but highly dangerous technology: microscopic bio-machines that can cure any disease and heal any wound. In theory, this research could be a miracle cure, perhaps even a doorway to immortality. It was also the only way Dr. Kennessy could save his leukemia-stricken son.
But when a second corpse turns up, savagely mutilated from within, it's anything but theoretical. Could machines created to cure have learned to kill? Scrambling for answers, Mulder and Scully are opposed at every step by faceless enemies with all the resources of the government - even perhaps of their own agency - at their command. These enemies will stop at nothing to ensure that the secret of immortality falls into the right hands - their hands.
As sinister forces close in, Scully fights to save the life of an innocent boy while Mulder comes face to face with a crazed and desperate man - a man whose slightest touch brings agonizing death, and perhaps a resurrection more horrible still.

Another FANTASTIC X-Files story !!!!

Another FANTASTIC journey into the X-Files universe !!!!!
Can F.B.I. Agents, Fox Mulder & Dana Scully stop the spread of an unknown, and yet to be understood bio-agent ?? Can they find the cause of this bio-agent & who or what is spreading it ??
Can they get to the crux of the case, help the young boy diagnosed with a terminal Luekemia Cancer & his mother, hiding somewhere in the wilderness in a hidden cabin ??
And do this.......Before the Shadowy Cabal known as the "Syndicate" & the "Smoking Man", who have sent a team of lethal quick response agents, with the sole purpose of finding,.......killing,.......and leaving NO traces, NO witnesses, NO evidence !?!
If you need to find out more,.......
Then I strongly urge you to dive into this Fantastic X-Files story !!!!
Patrick Lawlor, has done a brilliant job of narrating this X-Files series !!! He has done a fantastic job of bringing the story, characters and mind blowing events within the X-Files universe to life !!!!
If like me,..... you are a fan of The X-FILES, then this series is surely a MUST !!!!!

Painful

Unbearably repetitive and forced. don't waste your time. the author has dumbed down the text so much and it feels like trading through a pre teen drama.

Conditional praise!

This audiobook flows most like an x-files episode. Unfortunately, it is an average story dealing with themes and ideas dome better in other actual episodes. The characterizations are pretty spot on, but falls flat with narration rather than full cast.
