Praise for Silence Of The Lambs

“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.”

Clive Barker

“The best book I've read in a very long time. Subtle, horrific and splendid”

Roald Dahl

“A snapshot from hell”

Rolling Stone
