Review: Jack has had a miserable day. He has planed to take his anger out at the local arcade. He has just started a game when a mealy looking kid sad that it is his game. Jack isnīt going to let this kid take away his game and lifts him a few inches from the ground. Then throws him away. That was when the power went out. Things are getting creepy around the arcade. And Jack wants to leave.
He gets back to his car and stars the engine. He isnīt even off the parking lot when the engine dies. Yet the radio still blared. And the creepy kid was in the doorway of the arcade, silently watching. There was a burst of light followed by a sharp crack. Jack spun to see what had happened. His pizza delivery sign on the antenna burst into flames. It was the only warning he got. A shock seemed to explode from the center of his chest, out to his legs, arms and head. He could feel his eyes bulging, his body convulsing violently, bouncing in the seat. The pain in his muscles was unbearable. His fingers knotted with the voltage flying through them. He reached out to try to open the door, but he was shaking so violently that his head smashed the side door.There was nothing he could do...
There in the doorway was Darin Oswald, watching without a bit of emotion as Jack died. At last Darin released his hold on the car radio. The parking lot fell silent and Darin went back to his game. Getting a new record.
Yet another great X-Files book. As shown in the part above which is mostly copied from the book, so much detail in all the X-Files books. And yet, every thing we all suspect from those books. Mystery, the unexplained the scientific proof, just everything. T And again, easy to remember if you have seen it on TV. Nothing is left out. And the book is just so short. Easy to read and just over a hundred pages. So for you who donīt like those huge books, which takes months or even years to read, read this one. Remember. this book is from a series. But you donīt have to read these books in that order.
