The first in a series of novelizations based on the new exciting and compelling series Millennium from Chris Carter, the creator of the phenomenally successful X-Files.
The approach of the millennium seems to coincide with the demise of human feeling, and an increase in evil. However, there is also hope, for a force is at work to begin to reverse the horror of the inevitable. Frank Black, a brilliant FBI veteran whose speciality is the apprehension of homicidal psychopaths, mysteriously has an intense ability to enter the minds of the criminals, coupled with flashes of psychic insight. He has amassed an impressive track record against the worst serial killers and murderers of recent memory.
But burned out, afraid for the safety of his wife and daughter, he has left the FBI and relocated to Seattle. Now part of a shadowy underground force – known cryptically as the Millennium Group – Frank’s mission is to take down the maniacs preying on the innocent. Frank’s seemingly idyllic family life is in direct conflict with the horrific world he must enter – the minds of the most evil killers – in order to protect them.

THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS
The signs are everywhere. A stripper's mutilated corpse. Prophecies scrawled on a highway overpass. The living dead interred in home-made coffins beside a freezing river. Darkness visible is stalking Seattle's sexual underground and the police can't stop it.
Frank Black quit the FBI and moved his wife and daughter to Seattle to keep them safe. But it may be too late. As the millennium approaches, the darkness only he can see has followed him. Now, Frank Black and the enigmatic Millennium group are pitted against a tormented serial killer whose visions mirror Frank's own: the death throes of a world – our world – spinning into the abyss.
