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.

    " This book basically made Silence of the Lambs look like child's play. It was grotesque, disturbing and had plenty of times where the book had to be put down because of how horrible it was getting. There were some points where I wondered how Clarice had gone from being a celebrated member of the FBI to a has-been. She was still doing a perfectly fine job and seemed to be getting railed for whatever reason. We got a more interesting look into the mind of Hannibal, and it was definitely more interesting to see him out of the cells that we had previously only been allowed to see. I absolutely hated Mason, he was far too disturbing in the book and clearly had been out of his mind for a long time. I wish it was more clear on who ended up eating his face; himself or the dogs. I liked the story all the way up until the last few chapters, when there was apparently a serious relationship going on between Hannibal and Clarice. From Silence of the Lambs, I never got the feeling that their relationship would go into that direction. "
