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.

    "Great book,So so narration"

    Would have given 5 Stars except for the narrator. He's especially bad doing the bad guys.I still recommend this offering,even if like me you are well acquainted with the story.I read the book years ago and have seen both movies more than once. The combination of crime procedural and character studies make for a compelling read.Harris is one of the best all time story tellers.

    "Great story, great narration"

    First off, hats off to Alan Sklar. One of the finest narrations that I've had the pleasure of listening to.

    What a great book. Harris' descriptions are perfect as we get a feel for different personalities. The ways he sets pace and suspense are expert.

    Especially heart-wrenching were the descriptions of the traumas that helped shape Francis Dolarhyde into the monster he'd become. Indeed, he was transformed -- from sad, tortured man into torturous killer.

    "Great book, terribly narrated"

    This is a really good book, but I couldn't finish the Audible version because of the narrator.

    "A clenching story"

    The book was by all means far better than the movie or series. It had portions fragments if you will of both which fulfilled the story completely. The book was much more descriptive. I found parts were frightening as well as heart wrenching, as you read life through a killers eyes as a child. I wont tell any of the story but this is a must read to fully understand this authors ideas before Hollywood and Anthony Hopkins fell into his life

    "Performance? Very annoying."

    While the story was great, the performance was annoying to the point it nearly ruined it for me.

    What made the experience of listening to Red Dragon the most enjoyable?

    I loved the narrator's voices throughout the story, as well as the storyline itself. The dramatic pauses and pronunciation really brought the details to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Dragon?

    I really loved the scene in which they went to see the tiger. I believe that was my most memorable moment.


    Which character – as performed by Alan Sklar – was your favorite?

    Will Graham was defiantly my favorite. I loved the way he would get into the mind of the killer to solve the crime. Many of his ideas where ingenious.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh no, I listened to it in multiple sittings. I usually play audiobooks while I drive.

    I'm just a guy who hates Small talk, thanks to audible and a good set of ear buds. Not shopping, not even waiting rooms are a problem.
