Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8When FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully go to Gibsonton, FL, to investigate a murder, they quickly realize that there is something "very special"if not down right weirdabout this case. The murder victim is Jerald Glazebrook, better known as "The Alligator Man" in his profession as a circus and carnival sideshow act. All of the suspects are "different," to say the least, for they live in a town populated by freaks and sideshow performers. The murderer is a shocker, not only for who he is, but what he is. The pace in this mystery is brisk, and the characters are believable enough. This story takes the unusual and turns it around to show how much it has in common with ordinary matters. These bizarre twists make for some engaging, if not compelling, reading.Jeanette Lambert, Nashville Metropolitan Schools, TN
