MEET HANNIBAL LECTER FOR THE FIRST TIME.

In the realm of psychological suspense, Thomas Harris stands alone. Exploring both the nature of human evil and the nerve-racking anatomy of a forensic investigation, Harris unleashes a frightening vision of the dark side of our well-lighted world. In this extraordinary novel, which preceded The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, Harris introduced the unforgettable character Dr. Hannibal Lecter. And in it, Will Graham—the FBI man who hunted Lecter down—risks his sanity and his life to duel a killer called the...Red Dragon

Harris writes a new Foreword for this edition. Extensive national radio network campaign. National print ads. Updated author site at www.thomasharris.com.

I've seen the movies and the television show, but I have never read such a thrilling, detailed book. Harris writes as though each and every one of these characters are his best friends. The vivid imagery and the realism in this book made me feel part of it. Honestly the beat series I have read by far.

A few weeks before reading this book I watched, for the first time, The Silence of the Lambs. That movie was incredible, so I decided to purchase the book. I got really lucky and found a copy that was on sale, that not only contained The Silence of the Lambs, but also came with Red Dragon. Red Dragon is the most amazing, heart clenching, spine twisting book I have ever read. This book drove me crazy with confused feelings about the killer! Red Dragon is definitely one of my most favorite books of all time, and it is absolutely worth reading.
