Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As part of the search for a serial murderer nicknames "Buffalo Bill," FBI trainee Clarice Starling is given an assignment. She must visit a man confined to a high-security facility for the criminally insane and interview him.

That man, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, is a former psychiatrist with unusual tastes and an intense curiosity about the darker corners of the mind. His intimate understanding of the killer and of Clarice herself form the core of Thomas Harris' The Silence of the Lambs--an unforgettable classic of suspense fiction.

Review:

"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 Book World

Review:

"[T]hrillingly effective....Harris understands the crafting of literary terror as very few writers do; readers who put themselves in his good, coldblooded hands will lose sleep, and demand a sequel." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Beautifully written." The San Francisco Examiner

Review:

"Fast paced...intriguing...exciting." Chicago Tribune

Review:

"Superb." The New York Times

Review:

"[An] intelligent, fast-paced thriller....Harris has written a story, although not for the squeamish, that is hard to put down." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Hannibal Lecter. The ultimate villain of modern fiction. Read the five-million-copy bestseller that scared the world silent...

A young FBI trainee. An evil genius locked away for unspeakable crimes. A plunge into the darkest chambers of a psychopath's mind — in the deadly search for a serial killer...

Don't take this wrong, the movie was excellent. But the book has so much more riveting detail that wasn't incorporated into the film. Thomas Harris is in a league of his own, the master of creating suspense. Hannibal Lecter and Jame Gumb are two of the sickest fictional sociopaths ever created. The Silence of the Lambs is one of my all-time favorite books. If you haven't read this book yet, now is the time.
