A resilient young woman must outwit a sadistic psychopath in this pulse-pounding thriller from the author of The Silence of the Lambs, a "master still at the top of his strange and chilling form" (Wall Street Journal).

Twenty-five million dollars in cartel gold lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront. Ruthless men have tracked it for years. Leading the pack is Hans-Peter Schneider. Driven by unspeakable appetites, he makes a living fleshing out the violent fantasies of other, richer men.

Cari Mora, caretaker of the house, has escaped from the violence in her native country. She stays in Miami on a wobbly Temporary Protected Status, subject to the iron whim of ICE. She works at many jobs to survive. Beautiful, marked by war, Cari catches the eye of Hans-Peter as he closes in on the treasure. But Cari Mora has surprising skills, and her will to survive has been tested before.

Monsters lurk in the crevices between male desire and female survival. No other writer in the last century has conjured those monsters with more terrifying brilliance than Thomas Harris. Cari Mora, his sixth novel, is the long-awaited return of an American master.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reads Like A Movie I enjoyed this book but I didn't find it exceptional. The story reads quick as the plot is a period of a few days with the focus being getting to the gold. The writing style to me was like I was reading a movie or T V show. There are additional story lines about the characteristics of some of the characters, and there are a few good double crosses, but the story lacked something to give it some extra depth. I would still read another by this author.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I found absolutely nothing to like about this book. Waste of time and money. I really wish I could send my copy of this back to Thomas Harris and get a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast-paced adventure I've been waiting for the release of Cari Mora for a while now, and I was so excited to hear that Thomas Harris was releasing a new book. The Silence of the Lambs series is one of my all-time favourite book sets. I think there were a few loose ends, but I would read it again in future nonetheless.
