A serial killer is on the loose who murders whole families. The only hope of stopping him rests in the hands of two men...a detective who can put himself in the mind of a killer and a serial-killing cannibal who he locked away. This is the first appearance of Hannibal Lecter and it's a good one! This book got me into suspense thrillers and it's still one of the best. It's hard to put this book down.

WOW---This was a very Creepy??? Scarey??? Lets lock the doors and turn on all the lights read. The book is so much better than the movie. This book is the one written before the Silence Of The Lambs,so this is where you are actually introduced to Hannibal Lecter.

This book is scary, much scarier than Silence of the Lambs. Written very well, riveting. And gory.

As for the book itself...excellent. If you enjoyed the others in the Hannibal series you will not be disappointed here. The only complaint I found after reading it was...not enough Hannibal in there. I was actually expecting for him to be a bigger part of things. But was still a fantastic read.

This was a good read. Much better than I expected a sequel/prequel to Silence of the Lambs to be.
