Thomas Harris after several years of not writing has returned to the world of Fiction. Cari Mori is a book of factions fighting each other and several governments to get a treasure left by Pablo Escobar. Cari Mori is the name of the protagonist of the book. Her life has not been easy from her enforced inscription as a Colombian rebel to living in Miami with shaky immigration status.
Cari's survival instincts and her ability to adapt to any situation keep the reader interested and not wanting to stop reading. The book isn't as intense as "RED DRAGON" or "The Silence of the Lambs" series, but it's a true Thomas Harris thriller.
