THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS by Thomas HarrisRead about another entry on the list.
A young FBI agent is asked to interview the serial killer Hannibal Lecter in order to get information to solve a current serial murder case. It’s a great thriller and influenced my decision to write fiction. I liked the use of cryptic clues and forensic science.
The Silence of The Lambs is among Matt Suddain's five great meals from literature, Elizabeth Heiter's ten favorite serial killer novels, Jill Boyd's five books with the worst fictional characters to invite to Thanksgiving, Monique Alice's six great fictional evil geniuses, sixteen book-to-movie adaptations that won Academy Awards. Red Dragon appears on Kimberly Turner's list of the ten most disturbing sociopaths in literature and John Mullan's lists of ten of the best dragons in literature and ten of the best tattoos in literature, and the (U.K.) Telegraph 110 best books; Andrew Gross says "it should be taught as [a text] in Thriller 101."
