THE CLASSIC THRILLER BEHIND THE OSCAR-WINNING MOVIE

FBI trainee Clarice Starling has an elusive serial killer to hunt.
Only one man can help.
Psychopathic cannibal Hannibal Lecter...

The serial killer nicknamed 'Buffalo Bill' has been capturing and starving women, then murdering and skinning them. FBI rookie Clarice Starling is assigned to solicit help from imprisoned psychopath Dr Hannibal 'the Cannibal' Lecter, whose insight into the depraved minds of serial killers is second to none.

But in exchange for inviting her into the darkest chambers of his mind, Hannibal begins to probe at hers, demanding knowledge of her childhood demons as the price of understanding Buffalo Bill's.

Reviews

  • Thrillers don't come any better than this. Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. It takes us to places in the mind where few writers have the talent or sheer nerve to venture.
    Clive Barker
