about

As part of the search for a serial murderer nicknames "Buffalo Bill," FBI trainee Clarice Starling is given an assignment. She must visit a man confined to a high-security facility for the criminally insane and interview him.

That man, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, is a former psychiatrist with unusual tastes and an intense curiosity about the darker corners of the mind. His intimate understanding of the killer and of Clarice herself form the core of Thomas Harris' The Silence of the Lambs--an unforgettable classic of suspense fiction.

From Our Editors

Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal the Cannibal kept millions of viewers awake at night, but you haven't truly entered into the mind of the monstrous Dr. Lecter until you've read The Silence of the Lambs, the terrifying novel that inspired the movie. Clarice Starling is determined to catch "Buffalo Bill", a serial murderer who's been skinning his victims, but she can only do so with the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, an insane killer who has been locked away from civilization.

Editorial Reviews

"Razor-sharp entertainment, beautifully constructed and brilliantly written. Thrillers don't come any better than this." -Clive Barker"A virtual textbook on the craft of suspense, a masterwork of sheer momentum that rockets seamlessly toward its climax... Harris is quite simply the best suspense novelist working today." -The Washington Post"A psychological thriller so deftly woven and gripping that a reader can hardly get through one sentence fast enough to discover what's in the next." -Associated Press

Employee Review

FROM: The Best Book I Have Ever ReadI went to see the movie when I was fifteen, and came home raving about how good it was. My mom looked at me and simply said: "The book's better." How could it get better? The books tells you why Clarice is so driven? Why Buffalo Bill is making a woman suit? The novel reveals deeper relationships between the characters. The information Clarice gives Hannibal Lecter is far deeper and much more revealing than in the movie. So please don't think you can get away with just watching the film. You're missing quite the story - my favourite of all time.
