From the Back Cover
A team of American archaeologists disappear while exploring the lost Mayan city of Xitaclan – and FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are flown to the Yucatan jungles to investigate.
A mysterious jade artifact and ominous local legends lead Mulder to believe there may be more to this case than simply the missing team of scientists. Also, unbeknown to the two FBI agents, Xitaclan is the scene of an impending three-way brush war between Central America drug lords, international smugglers who deal in looted Mayan artifacts, and a covert US military commando team that has been sent to investigate, and destroy, a strange electronic signal received from beneath the ruins. Mulder and Scully must unravel the secret of Xitaclan and discover what has become of the lost archaeology team before these opposing forces converge on the forgotten ruins and unleash a power that nothing on Earth can contain.
Ruins is the most ambitious and exciting 'X-Files' novel to date, as Mulder and Scully race to unearth an ancient mystery with eerie and prophetic consequences for today's world, and for the future. The truth is out there, but can they bring it home to a sceptical world?
