A Killer Takes Shape
When rancher Jim Parker sees a snarling beast with blood-red eyes charging toward his son, he shoots it dead. But to his horror, the lifeless body is no wild animal. It's Joseph Goodensnake, a Trego Indian from the neighboring reservation.
It's a case that FBI Agent Fox Mulder can't resist. But when he and his partner Dana Scully begin to investigate, they're forced to a single conclusion: the Trego man and the wild beast are one and the same. Is there a more logical explanation - or have Mulder and Scully uncovered a terrifying tribal secret?
