A NEW NOVEL FROM THOMAS HARRIS - CREATOR OF HANNIBAL LECTER - HIS FIRST IN 13 YEARS
Thomas Harris is the author of five novels and is perhaps best known for his character Hannibal Lecter. All of his books have been made into films, including most notably the multiple Oscar winner, The Silence of the Lambs. Harris began his writing career covering crime in the United States and Mexico, and was a reporter and editor at the Associated Press in New York.
As good as ever. Reading his prose is like running a slow hand down
cold silk. -- Stephen King
The good news for readers of Cari Mora is that Hannibal is here in spirit if not in person. This is a very peculiar book, lavishly ridiculous in almost every respect and fully committed to the gothic extremes of human cruelty ... Sounds like fun, right? Well, it is ... There are decapitations, multiple dismemberments and brains dripping off ceilings. Also, a certain amount of lyrical stuff about manatees and seabirds, and some comic business with a foul-mouthed cockatoo ... What his fans look for is here - turned up to 11. -- Sam Leith * Spectator *
Thomas Harris set the bar for modern suspense writing ... [Cari Mora is] a tense heist thriller, plausibly grounded in coastal Florida and urban Colombia ... Harris's best since The Silence of the Lambs -- Leo Robson * New Statesman *
Cari Mora reinforces the brilliance of an author who can carve a piece of art from the placement of words on a page to form a narrative that scorches the mind, and makes one think. * Shots Magazine *
A literary event ... Thomas Harris is a supreme thriller writer - for not only does he create memorable and monstrous villains, but he also gives us formidable female protagonists ... Violent, brutal and action-packed, yet told with Harris's typical wry wit, it crackles from first page to last. * Daily Mail *
