Scully and Mulder have to throw the rule book away when they investigate a murder in Gibsonton, Florida, where normal does not exist. The natives are circus and sideshow performers. The victim, called The Alligator Man, died a bizarre, mysterious death. And the agents' list of suspects, which grows daily, is beginning to look like a page out of Ripley's Believe It or Not. . . .

About the Author:

Les Martin has written and adapted dozens of books for young readers, including eleven X-Files novelizations, and Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom movie storybooks. He lives in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?When 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 weird?about 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
