Trust No One: The Official Third Season Guide to The X-Files is a reference book published by HarperPrism that provides an extensive episode guide to Season 3 of The X-Files.

First published in 1996, the book was the second volume in a series of reference books; each volume had summaries and production information for the episodes of each season, up to and including Season 7, with the exception of the first volume, The Truth Is Out There: The Official Guide to The X-Files, which pertained to both Seasons 1 and 2.

Like the first volume, this book was written by Brian Lowry and researched by Sarah Stegall. It includes not only a summary and production information for each of the episodes in the fourth season but also an in-depth article about the making of season finale "Talitha Cumi", an article about the writing of the series (up to and including the third season), a FAQ about the first three years of The X-Files, a guide to the ratings of the series' third season, a list of awards and honors presented to the series during its first three years of airing and a compilation of synopses for every episode in the series' first and second seasons.
