Beneath the surface of North Texas, something has been sleeping for more than thirty-five thousand years, since the last ice age until the present, when a group of young boys stumble upon something unspeakable deep inside a cavern. Their discovery draws the attention of the mysterious group known only as the syndicate--but will the syndicate save humanity, or bring on a viral Armageddon?
In nearby Dallas, FBI special agents Fox Mulder And Dana Scully save hundreds of lives from a terrorist attack on a federal building. But in the government investigation that follows, their careers--and lives--are on the line, as the bureau attempts to pin the blame on them. Why?
Mulder and Scully's search for answers takes them from FBI headquarters in Washington, D. C., to a hidden laboratory on the Texas border and finally to a frozen wilderness, where their worst suspicions about a global conspiracy are confirmed. And when Scully is kidnapped and infected with an extraterrestrial virus, Mulder has only hours to find the antidote and his partner before it s too late--for all of us. Will one man be able to fight the future?
