9780006483243: X-Files (1) - The Calusari (The X-files)

The first in a stylish new series of novelizations of classic episodes from the phenomenally successful cult TV show The X-Files created by Chris Carter.

FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully investigate the eerie unsolved mysteries the FBI want handled quietly but quickly, before the public finds out what’s really out there… and panics. The cases filed under ‘X’.

In The Calusari, first, Charlie’s little brother is pulled onto the tracks of an oncoming train by an unseen force. Several days later, his father is killed by a bizarre garage-door malfunction. Both times Charlie is present – watching. Charlie’s Romanian grandmother believes that he is responsible for the deaths. A firm believer in old-world traditions, she calls in the ancient Calusari. They will perform the rituals needed to cleanse the boy’s soul.

But is Charlie truly a demon? Or is there a darker, more horrifying force at hand? Mulder and Scully must find out – before a young boy becomes the final sacrifice!

About the Author:

Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing’Hail the Conquering Hero Comes’ or possibly’Roll Out the Barrel’. Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital) and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a boot full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter. He is now an award-winning author and one of the most influential names in contemporary fantasy.
