Description

________________________________
From the creator of Hannibal Lecter and The Silence of the Lambs comes a story of evil, greed and the consequences of dark obsession.
________________________________
Twenty-five million dollars in cartel gold lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront. Ruthless men have tracked it for years. Leading the pack is Hans-Peter Schneider. Driven by unspeakable appetites, he makes a living fleshing out the violent fantasies of other, richer men.

Cari Mora, caretaker of the house, has escaped from the violence in her native country. She stays in Miami on a wobbly Temporary Protected Status, subject to the iron whim of ICE. She works at many jobs to survive. Beautiful, marked by war, Cari catches the eye of Hans-Peter as he closes in on the treasure. But Cari Mora has surprising skills, and her will to survive has been tested before.

Monsters lurk in the crevices between male desire and female survival. No other writer in the last century has conjured those monsters with more terrifying brilliance than Thomas Harris. Cari Mora, his sixth novel, is the long-awaited return of an American master.

Review Text

"Cari Mora reinforces the brilliance of an author who can carve a piece of art from the placement of words on a page to form a narrative that scorches the mind, and makes one think."

"As good as ever. Reading his prose is like running a slow hand down cold silk." -- Stephen King "`The last two decades of 19th century popular fiction were dominated by Conan Doyle and Sherlock Homes. A century on, suspense literature has achieved their equals in Thomas Harris.'" * Guardian * "`I hope with all my heart that [Harris] will write again, and sooner rather than later - novels that bravely and cleverly erase the line between popular fiction and literature are very much to be prized.'" -- Stephen King "`Harris's writing bears the hallmarks of honed perfection.'" * The Times *
