READ BY BRUCE HARWOOD
When an elderly professor, admitted to hospital for a routine skin graft, receives skin from the wrong donor, the results are catastrophic: the hospital ward is destroyed in a psychotic bloodbath, and the professor becomes a wanted man.
Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are the only ones to suspect something more ominous than a medical procedure gone awry, and while the police hunt the fleeing professor, Mulder and Scully track the skin that was mistakenly grafted onto him, first to the headquarters of a cutting-edge biotech company , and then to Thailand, where napalm victims were treated with an amazing recovery rate, but never returned to their families.
Scully is looking for an experimental medical technology with disastrous side effects. Mulder suspects the stakes are even higher, his fear confirmed as they begin to uncover an unholy alliance between a battle-trained plastic surgeon, international politicians, and a legendary Thai monster known as the “Skin-Eater.”
Bruce Harwood has the recurring role of Byers, one of the trio known as the Lone Gunmen and also appeared in the X-Files film.
Ben Mezrich worked variously as a cartoonist, legal researcher, communications specialist and television production assistant before writing his first novel Threshold, then Reaper. A Harvard graduate and X-Files fan, he lives in Boston
