    A serial murderer known only by a grotesquely apt nickname - Buffalo Bill - is stalking women. He has a purpose, but no one can fathom it, for the bodies are discovered in different states. Clarice Starling, a young trainee at the FBI Academy, is surprised to be summoned by Jack Crawford, chief of the Bureau's Behavioral Science section. Her assignment: to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter - Hannibal the Cannibal - who is kept under close watch in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

    Story

    I read the book decades ago, but my memory of the story comes from the Jodie Foster film -- which I thought was way beyond scary and absolutely excellent. Could be that it was, but this audiobook is far superior. The story itself is extremely innovative with provocative main characters and a host of colorful second-tier players, enough to make it a great book all by itself, but Frank Muller's narration makes it simply perfect. I don't know how he does it, but in some of the unbelievably tense scenes, I realize I'm sitting with every muscle ready to spring. The pure evil Muller brings out of the scenes, just by voice alone, is amazing -- the Radio Spirits people, who talk about 'the theater of the mind' could have been talking about this audiobook. You hear the words, but because of the excellent narration, the scenes that play in your mind are better than any film could be. I know this is a book I will listen to again and again -- and I'm sure, on subsequent listens, I will discover even more things about it than I saw this first time. It's a true classic, in every sense.
