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.
"Much more than the movie"
An innocent family are 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.
"The Best Police Procedural of Our Time"
Seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane. The doctor is still at large, pursuing his own ineffable interests, savoring the scents, the essences of an unguarded world. But Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr. Lecter, and the metallic rasp of his seldom-used voice still sounds in her dreams. Mason Verger remembers Dr. Lecter, too, and is obsessed with revenge.
"Great Story but the last 25 pages are missing"
Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki.
"Good book, good narration"
The Silence of the Lambs is an instant classic of chilling psychological suspense. From the tormenting words of homicidal maniac Hannibal Lecter and the flesh-rending depravity of an elusive killer to the sheer courage of a young FBI novice who risks her life to track him down and stop the bloodshed, this critically acclaimed audio production, narrated by Kathy Bates, has an unforgettable intensity.
"Lots of fun."
From the author of Silence of the Lambs, it's the terrifying tale that introduced the world to Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lecter. There's a serial killer on the loose who specializes in murdering innocent, happy families, and now it's up to FBI Special Agent Will Graham to understand the brutal killer's motivation and anticipate his next move. Graham needs to get inside the killer's mind; to do that, he needs the help of the brilliant, psychopathic Hannibal Lecter.
"May as well just watch the DVD"
In the highly-anticipated sequel to The Silence of the Lambs and the final book in the trilogy that started with Red Dragon, seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane.
Thomas H. Davenport, a professor at Babson College, Jeanne Harris, an executive research fellow and senior executive at Accenture's Institute for High Performance, and Jeremy Shapiro, an executive director in human resources at Morgan Stanley, writes about what the best companies know about their employees – and how they use that information to outperform their rivals.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Thomas Harris’ legendary best-seller, Audible presents The Silence of the Lambs, with a new introduction written and read by the author himself. An FBI trainee. A psychopath locked up for unspeakable crimes. And a serial killer getting ever closer to his latest victim... Seeking insight into the deadly madman she must find, FBI rookie Clarice Starling turns to Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a monster cannibal held in a hospital for the criminally insane.
'It is an axiom of behavioural science that vampires are territorial, while cannibals range widely. 'Hannibal killed nine people before he was caught. And five on his escape. Two of his victims survived - one of them is in an asylum; but the other craves revenge. Mason Verger, a paraplegic confined to a respirator since his encounter with Dr Lecter, can move only the fingers of his crippled right hand across the soft blanket that covers his lifeless body.
"Ridiculously intrusive narration"
Seit sechs Jahren wird der Massenmörder Dr. Hannibal Lecter in der geschlossenen Abteilung einer psychiatrischen Klinik hermetisch...
There's a killer on the loose who knows that beauty is only skin deep, and a trainee investigator who's trying to save her own hide. The only man that can help is locked in an asylum. But he's willing to put a brave face on, if it will help him escape.
"Abridged and ruined"
Sin una razón de peso, el agente especial Jack Crawford no habría turbado la apacible existencia y el anonimato de Will Graham, el hombre que había conseguido desenmascarar al psicópata doctor Lecter, más conocido en los medios de comunicación como Hannibal el Caníbal.
Sexual hunger; demonic violence; sinister logic; the lethal components of a deadly formula driving a psychopath in the grip of an unimaginable delusion; a boastful killer who sends the police tormenting notes; a tortured, torturing monster who finds ultimate pleasure in viciously murdering happy families, and calls himself The Red Dragon.
"A good listen - but where's the rest?"
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.
When the game begins in New Orleans this Super Bowl Sunday, 80,000 people had better get ready to die. Before there was Hannibal and The Silence of the Lambs, Thomas Harris wrote Black Sunday, the gripping, suspenseful, and "frighteningly believable" New York Times best seller.
The sequel to Silence of the Lambs marks the return of Dr Hannibal Lecter. One of Hannibal's victims, the influential and rich Mason Verger, a paraplegic confined to a respirator thanks to Hannibal, is bent on revenge, and FBI agent Clarice Starling provides the perfect bait.
"The book is so much better than the film"
Harris ve své knize vykresluje komplikované vyšetrování netradicních a brutálních vražd. Jenže do hlavní role neobsadil nezdolného ostríleného detektiva nebo "bondovského" agenta, ale doslova "pískle" - studentku akademie FBI Clarice Starlingovou, která je prizvána na základe duvery a instinktu reditele mocné FBI. Dalším netradicním prvkem je spolupráce Clarice s masovým vrahem a kanibalem Dr. Hannibalem Lecterem. Už tato fakta svedcí o tom, že Harris predložil thriller, který bourá konvence.
