Red Dragon by Thomas Harris

  In the realm of psychological suspense, Thomas Harris stands alone. Exploring both the nature of human evil and the nerve-racking anatomy of a forensic investigation, Harris unleashes a frightening vision of the dark side of a well-lighted world. In this extraordinary novel, which preceded The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, Harris first introduced the unforgettable character Dr. Hannibal Lecter. And in it, Will Graham, the FBI agent who hunted Lecter down, risks his sanity and his life to duel a killer known as the Red Dragon....


  Was compelled to read this novel after first reading The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal and was not dissappointed in the least. I was hooked after the first few pages, and hunkered down to what became a weekend read. No one compares to Harris in psychological thrillers. A must read...
