I need to establish that I am a "Silence of the Lambs" guy so my opinions might be biased. At first I thought Harris should have let someone else read it, but I must confess, if for no other reason, his Mason Verger voice is worth the listen. Simply fabulous! The story is great if you are a Hannibal Lecter fan as am I. Harris obviously knows the FBI, knows about Italy, and his writing is GREAT. Wonderfully established plot, intriguing characters, just plain good. The ending was NOT what I expected, and was even a little cooky, but did not detract from my love of this read/listen. EXCELLENT!
"A native of Mississippi, Thomas Harris began his writing career covering crime in the United States and Mexico, and was a reporter and editor for the Associated Press in New York City. His first novel, Black Sunday, was published in 1975, followed by Red Dragon in 1981 and The Silence of The Lambs in 1988."
