The legendary Psychological thriller
An FBI trainee
A psychopath locked up for unspeakable crimes
And a serial killer getting ever closer to his latest victim –
FBI rookie Clarice Starling turns to Dr. Hannibal Lecter, monster cannibal held in a hospital for the criminally insane, for insight into the deadly madman she must find. As Dr. Lecter invites her into the darkest chambers of his mind, he forces her to confront her own childhood demons as the price of understanding, an unspeakable tuition he exacts to teach her how the monster thinks. And time is running out . . .
“Thrillers don't come any better than this. Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. It takes us to places in the mind where few writers have the talent or sheer nerve to venture.”
“The best book I've read in a very long time. Subtle, horrific and splendid”
“A snapshot from hell”
