In the third installment of The X-Files, the once reliable nuclear weapons specialist, Khalid, is listed as “missing in action” by the United States government. Why? Well, he has turned into a sleeper agent, which means that he isn’t human and was exposed to dangerous, unknown radiation in the alien city called Skulath, and he could be in danger if his former handler, Scully, doesn’t find him.
Or is it a political issue? Mulder finds out that he’s not human and he does seem to be an excellent spy but they could not give him a gun, and the fact that his real name is missing is just… strange.
This is a very interesting book for fans of the show because there are lots of different places that can be done with the story. And I was very intrigued by how Mulder dealt with the whole thing and what he found out. But it seems to me that this is the most interesting part of the book. What we see in this book is a side of Mulder that is rarely seen in the X-Files and I think that really adds to the popularity of the show.
I have read other books about the X-Files and have always been drawn to these books because of the use of flashbacks and other things. This is a great book for that kind of reading and I was very excited to find out what happened with this character. It seems to me that this series is very smart about how people use technology and make theories.
As I said, there are some great scenes and I really liked the history of the place, the history of the people that lived there, and the interesting cast of characters that have had to deal with this place and the X-Files. The most interesting thing to me was how Mulder came to be in this place.
I always feel like these types of novels are fiction book and are probably not going to make any money at all unless the author is on the TV show. A lot of times you will find someone who is just interested in trying to cash in on a good piece of fiction and try to get it published as their own. Well, this book has been released under the name “Pat Sullivan” so it’s on good authority that the author did some research on this place and went to several movies that were shot there.
There are some very strong points about the overall atmosphere of the place and the people that lived there. I enjoyed reading about how the X-Files helped to put this place back together and put a bright light on people that had lived there for a long time and had nothing to do with the show at all.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who likes this type of book. Definitely would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of the X-Files and sci-fi books in general.
