Publisher's Summary

A quiet summer night...a neat suburban house...and another innocent, happy family is shattered - the latest victims of a grisly series of hideous sacrificial killings that no one understands, and no one can stop. Nobody lives to tell of the unimaginable carnage. Only the blood-stained walls bear witness.

All hope rests on Special Agent Will Graham, who must peer inside the killer's tortured soul to understand his rage, to anticipate and prevent his next vicious crime. Desperate for help, Graham finds himself locked in a deadly alliance with the brilliant Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the infamous mass murderer who Graham put in prison years ago.

As the imprisoned Lecter tightens the reins of revenge, Graham's feverish pursuit of the Red Dragon draws him inside the warped mind of a psychopath, into an unforgettable world of demonic ritual and violence, beyond the limits of human terror.

    "greatbook!"
    Would you listen to Red Dragon again? Why?

    oh yes, i have read the book and seen the movie (manhunter). i love the audiobook the best. because i don't see well and anyway, i enjoy someone reading to me. that way i don't miss a thing. i find my eyes tire too quickly and i end up skipping half the book.

    it is a good story. i will listen to again and again.


    What other book might you compare Red Dragon to and why?

    silence of the lambs by the same author. maybe because the y were written by the same author.


    What does Alan Sklar bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    a clear crisp voice. easy on the ears.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when reba was with frances and he was watching those movies of his next victim. i remember that when i read the book and saw the movie. again that moment struck me as very very scary.

    "Not what I expected"
    What would have made Red Dragon better?

    More Hannibal Lector


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    An Innocent Man by John Grissom


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The Narrator was great. The story was boring.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not Really


    Any additional comments?

    It should not have been part of the Hannibal Lector series of books when he's only mentioned in couple of paragraphs. I wish that character would have been a larger part of the book.
