About this title

Synopsis:

Based on the popular Emmy Award-nominated television series, a tale of supernatural suspense brings the FBI psychic investigator team of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully up against one of their most confounding cases. 50,000 first printing. TV tie-in.

From the Publisher:

A well-connected American archaeologist, Cassandra Rubicon, disappears while exploring the lost Mayan city of Xitaclan -- and an FBI team is flown to the Yuctan jungles to investigate.

This is no ordinary FBI team, however. Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are investigators assigned to the X-Files, the strange and inexplicable cases the FBI wants to keep hidden from the scrutiny of the press and the public...the cases involving the paranormal, the supernatural -- and possibly, the extraterrestrial.

Based on a mysterious jade artifact recovered from the crumbling ruins, as well as ominous legends whispered by superstitious natives, Mulder decides there may be more to this case than simply a missing team of scientists -- namely ancient curses, blood sacrifices, and deadly reptilian monsters lost in the jungles since before history.

Scully is, as always, more skeptical. Her priority is to keep an eye on her partner, trying to provide logical explanations for Mulder's unorthodox speculations.

Unbeknownst to the two FBI agents, the lost city of Xitaclan is the scene of an impending three-way brush war between Central American drug lords, international smugglers who deal in looted Mayan artifacts, and a covert U.S. military commando team that has been sent to investigate and destroy a strange electronic signal received from beneath the ruins -- a signal aimed upward, at the stars!

Accompanied by the father of the missing Cassandra Rubicon, 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 the future. The truth is out there -- but can they bring it home to a skeptical world?
