Hannibal

Hannibal

Author: Thomas Harris Format: eBook Release Date: 10/12/2009

`It is an axiom of behavioural science that vampires are territorial, while cannibals range widely. ' Hannibal killed nine people before he was caught. And five on his escape. Two of his victims survived - one of them is in an asylum; but the other craves revenge. Mason Verger, a paraplegic confined to a respirator since his encounter with Dr Lecter, can move only the fingers of his crippled right hand across the soft blanket that covers his lifeless body. But Verger is very rich and very influential, and his reach extends into the echelons of power around the world. His need to find Lecter is insatiable. In Clarice Starling he has the perfect bait. As gripping and terrifying as any reader or listener of Silence of the Lambs would expect. Simply unforgettable

Author: Thomas Harris Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/05/2009

_________________________ HANNIBAL LECTER WASN'T BORN A MONSTER. HE WAS MADE ONE. Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front of World War II, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He will not speak of what happened to him and his family. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France. There, Hannibal lives with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki, who helps him to heal - and flourish. But Hannibal's demons are not so easily defeated. Throughout his young life, they visit him and torment him. When he is old enough, he visits them in turn - and in the fog of traumatic memory, he discovers that he has gifts far beyond what he imagined...

Hannibal

Author: Thomas Harris Format: eBook Release Date: 27/11/2007

Invite Hannibal Lecter into the palace of your mind and be invited into his mind palace in turn.Note the similarities in yours and his, the high vaulted chambers of your dreams, the shadowed halls, the locked storerooms where you dare not go, the scrap of half-forgotten music, the muffled cries from behind a wall.In one of the most eagerly anticipated literary events of the decade, Thomas Harris takes us once again into the mind of a killer, crafting a chilling portrait of insidiously evolving evil--a tour de force of psychological suspense.Seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane.The doctor is still at large, pursuing his own ineffable interests, savoring the scents, the essences of an unguarded world.But Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr. Lecter, and the metallic rasp of his seldom-used voice still sounds in her dreams.Mason Verger remembers Dr. Lecter, too, and is obsessed with revenge.He was Dr. Lecter's sixth victim, and he has survived to rule his own butcher's empire.From his respirator, Verger monitors every twitch in his worldwide web.Soon he sees that to draw the doctor, he must have the most exquisite and innocent-appearing bait; he must have what Dr. Lecter likes best.Powerful, hypnotic, utterly original, Hannibal is a dazzling feast for the imagination.Prepare to travel to hell and beyond as a master storyteller permanently alters the world you thought you knew.
