Hannibal is back! Thomas Harris's sequel to the Silence of the Lambs once again pits Clarice Starling against Hannibal the Cannibal in this utterly compelling thriller

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, but Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr Lecter, and the metallic rasp of his seldom-used voice still sounds in her dreams…


An absolute holiday must. Quite simply this is the best-written thriller to dominate the market in years
