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.

    "Just as good as the first time I listened to it"

    It must have been ages since I listened to the book back when I had it on CD but I had to give it another listen because I wanted to jog my memory a bit before watching Hannibal on network TV. Season 1 was good, Season 2 not so good, so I went back to the original material including this one.

    "Something New "

    This was the first audible book I've listened to and it was great to hear the story while getting things done. The gentleman who read the book oud able to create distinct tones for each individual character.

    "Cool Story Bro"

    Much better than I expected. certainly going to finish the series. The narration was excellent and easy to understand, but the narrator didn't do as good of a job as others when it came to making the voices sound different. a lot of slight differences to inflection and tone, but not much else. Easy to get used to as you listen though.

    "Not a Patch in Silence of the Lambs"

    Harris's prose and characters advance light years in Silence of the Lambs. Red Dragin reads like the average Netflix series.

    "A Worthwhile Suspense"

    This is an enjoyable read. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fun, easy read with some decent police drama, Hollywood action scenes and sympothetic villians. Certainly not going to win any awards, but we'll worth the time investment.

    "I had forgotten how good Red Dragon was..."

    Firstly, don't pay any attention to those nattering nabobs of negativity that dissed Alan Sklar's performance. I thought he did a fine job. Too many of my fellow Audible's are like teenage Beatle groupies, don't EVEN mention the Monkee's to them...they don't wanna hear anything else but... Now onto the story... I really enjoyed both film versions of Red Dragon/Mindhunter and also enjoyed reading it back in the day. But it always surprises me how much I have forgotten about a previously read book. Couple that with the unique experience of listening to the same book and I found myself completely enjoying the experience, again. This is a dark, dark listen and not for the faint of heart. The last chapter was just flat out great writing...and listening. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    "Outstanding"

    I am not sure why some have put down Alan's performance narrating this novel, but as someone who has been listening to audiobooks since they were introduced on cassettes, I thought his performance was excellent.
    This book is well worth the time and effort and the listener will not be disappointed.

    "Very similar to the movie"

    I saw this movie (the 2002 edition) before reading the book and I was pleasantly surprised that the movie stayed very close to the book. I love the movie and love the book! It was well written and well read.
