The X-Files: Ground Zero by Kevin J. Anderson

Dr. Gregory, a renowned nuclear weapons researcher, is not only dead—he's been charred to a radioactive cinder.

Since this is a death on Federal property, Mulder and Scully are hastily called in. As FBI agents who specialize in unexplained phenomena, they are the investigators of The X-Files, strange and inexplicable cases which are also mysteries that the FBI doesn't want solved.

When a second victim, completely unrelated to nuclear science or Dr. Gregory is obliterated in the New Mexico desert, and then a third dies the same way in Washington, DC, Mulder and Scully begin to focus on the frightening dimension of their task. The bizarre deaths cannot be a coincidence. And as they work to uncover the secret unifying element that unites these deaths, it becomes clear that this twisted puzzle has fatal consequences for the entire world.

After the death of an old man ,Mr. Gregory, who is a nuclear weapons researcher, the FBI have failed to solved the crime so they call in Special agents Mulder and Scully who specialize in paranormal cases. After their inspection of the body, they observe that the researcher is not only dead but charred to a radio active cinder. Mr. Gregory's unusual death soon becomes an X file. As Mulder and Scully begin their tedious work unearthing the top secret project that Mr. Gregory was working on, which may have killed him, they confront a tight lipped Federal Bureaucracy whose job it is to fend off questions before they are asked. One by one Mulder and Scully hit dead ends closed by security clearance and classified documents which no one wants them to, see. But that does not stop Mulder and Scully from exposing Mr. Gregory's illegal project-Bright Anvil- a new type of flash nuclear explosive that has all the destructive power of the infamous Hiroshima atomic bombs, but with a new design that leaves virtually no radio active fallout. The implications for the modern world are deadly, and some radical protest groups will stop at nothing to prevent this from happening. This type of book has a unique plot. Usually I find mystery books boring but this one has this fascinating paranormal activity plot. Even the imaginary technology that we know does not really exist seems realistic in this book. I like this book because every chapter end leaves you wanting for more. In other words it is hard for me to put the book down. It is very interesting that I like this book because I am usually a picky reader and usually like reading action books only. I would, though like a little more action and adventure even though the suspense in this book is electrifying at times. I recommend this to teenagers that like mystery books or science fiction books. This type of story is hard to find.

I'm a big X-Files fan, so it's hard for me to fault this on anything. But I could just picture Mulder saying some of the things in a show that he says in the book. It's very true to the characters.
