    DescriptionFBI trainee Clarice Starling walks down the state asylum's deepest keep, through the moans and whispers of the criminally insane. She is here to meet the monster in the final cell. He knows she is coming. She finds Dr Lecter reading the Italian Vogue. He looks up, looks into her. His gaze seems to pulse in her head, but she is only hearing her heartbeat. He listens to it too.

    Review quote
    "Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. Thrillers don't come any better than this." --Clive Barker "A virtual textbook on the craft of suspense, a masterwork of sheer momentum that rockets seamlessly toward its climax...Harris is quite simply the best suspense novelist working today." --"The Washington Post"" ""A psychological thriller so deftly woven and gripping that a reader can hardly get through one sentence fast enough to discover what's in the next." --Associated Press "Superb!...Harris's chilling story lowers the reader's blood temperature by several degrees." --"The New York Times" "A thriller to out-thrill all thrillers...impossible to put down!" --"Detroit News" "A real roller coaster, full of hairpin turns, sickening descents and sudden accelerations." --"New York Newsday" "A spine-tingling, vastly entertaining crime story...[by] a master of suspense...ingeniously macabre." --"Boston Herald" "It's marvelous, the best book I've read for a very long time...It is infinitely superior to any novel published this year." --Roald Dahl ""The Silence of the Lambs" will haunt for a long time; Harris places his clues and his carnage with precision." --"Philadelphia Inquirer" "As remarkable as its predecessor...some of the most powerful and entertaining fiction of our time!" --"The Washington Post" "Fast-paced...intriguing...exciting!" --"Chicago Tribune" "Without a doubt, [Harris is] one of the most powerful writers of suspense fiction today!" --"Milwaukee Journal" "Harris has once again hit us in the solar plexus. This is, in fact, a better read than "Red Dragon," which is all you need to know...A page-turner, one of those books that, once picked up, becomes immediately addictive." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"" ""The plot unreels rapidly...Hooks the reader and keeps the tension taut until the end." --"Portland Oregonian" "I read the first sentence of this book, threw up my hands and then stayed up all night to finish. It didn't matter, I've scarcely slept since." --Liz Smith "One of the most gripping reads of the year." --"Kirkus Reviews" "Thrilling effective...Harris understands the crafting of literary terror as very few writers do; readers who put themselves in his good, cold-blooded hands will lose sleep and demand a sequel." --"Publishers Weekly" "Intelligent, fast-paced...Hard to put down." --"Library Journal" "Beautifully written." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
