CLEARANCE

Robert Hilliard, a fifteen year old boy, living with his American Father in Sumatra, found himself orphaned by the Japanese. With the help of a British pilot, some Australians on New Guinea and a cattle station family in Australia, he found his way to the States where he lived with an uncle.

He joined the Navy at the end of the war, and was called to duty for the Korean conflict. He chose to serve in the Air Force and found himself on a special assignment that took him to Viet Nam, during the French occupation.

Hilliard fell from a plane over northern Vietnam and was captured by the Vietminh. This book is about his special assignment and escape from capture.

»Ett mästerverk. Thomas Harris är vår tids bästa thrillerförfattare.« | The Washington Post
Som en del i sökandet efter en seriemördare med smeknamnet »Buffalo Bill« får FBI-aspiranten Clarice Starling ett uppdrag. Hon måste besöka en man som sitter inspärrad på en högsäkerhetsfacilitet för psykiskt sjuka våldsbrottslingar, och intervjua honom.
Mannen, Hannibal Lecter, är en före detta psykiater med ovanliga preferenser och med ett passionerat intresse för det mänskliga psykets mörkare delar. Hans förståelse för mördaren och för Clarice själv bildar kärnan i Thomas Harris roman.
När lammen tystnar – en oförglömlig klassiker och boken bakom en av filmhistoriens mest kända thrillers.
I översättning av Sture Lundquist.

THOMAS HARRIS inledde sin karriär med att recensera kriminalromaner samtidigt som han arbetade som reporter i New York. Han debuterade 1975 och har sedan dess blivit en bästsäljande författare världen över, främst genom böckerna om den raffinerade psykopaten Hannibal Lecter. När lammen tystnar [The Silence of the Lambs] är den andra och mest kända boken i serien, inte minst tack vare den hyllade filmen från 1991, med Jodie Foster som Clarice Starling och Anthony Hopkins som Hannibal Lecter.

Siedem lat po brawurowej ucieczce z więzienia, doktor Hannibal Lecter przebywa pod fałszywym nazwiskiem we Florencji. Manson Verger, szósta ofiara doktora psychopaty ‒ choć udało mu się ująć z życiem ‒ został trwale okaleczony. Mężczyzna pała żądzą zemsty, wyznaczył za głowę Lectera wysoką nagrodę. Skorumpowany włoski policjant przekazuje Vergerowi informację o miejscu pobytu doktora, lecz próba schwytania kończy się fiaskiem. Lecter uwalnia się z zasadzki, jak zwykle zostawiając za sobą liczne trupy.

Tymczasem agentka FBI Clarice Starling, która dzięki pomocy Lectera odniosła swój pierwszy wielki sukces, po nieudanym nalocie narkotykowym zostaje zawieszona w obowiązkach. Lecter, który od dawna się nią interesował, pisze do niej list ze słowami pociechy. Mason Verger dowiaduje się o tym i postanawia wykorzystać agentkę jako przynętę. Udaje mu się schwytać doktora żywcem. Jednak Starling, która była świadkiem porwania, z niewiadomych powodów wyrusza doktorowi na ratunek…

Invite Hannibal Lecter into the palace of your mind and be invited into his mind palace in turn. Note the similarities in yours and his, the high vaulted chambers of your dreams, the shadowed halls, the locked storerooms where you dare not go, the scrap of half-forgotten music, the muffled cries from behind a wall.

In one of the most eagerly anticipated literary events of the decade, Thomas Harris takes us once again into the mind of a killer, crafting a chilling portrait of insidiously evolving evil—a tour de force of psychological suspense.

Seven years have passed since Dr. Hannibal Lecter escaped from custody, seven years since FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling interviewed him in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane. The doctor is still at large, pursuing his own ineffable interests, savoring the scents, the essences of an unguarded world. But Starling has never forgotten her encounters with Dr. Lecter, and the metallic rasp of his seldom-used voice still sounds in her dreams.

Mason Verger remembers Dr. Lecter, too, and is obsessed with revenge. He was Dr. Lecter's sixth victim, and he has survived to rule his own butcher's empire. From his respirator, Verger monitors every twitch in his worldwide web. Soon he sees that to draw the doctor, he must have the most exquisite and innocent-appearing bait; he must have what Dr. Lecter likes best.

Powerful, hypnotic, utterly original, Hannibal is a dazzling feast for the imagination. Prepare to travel to hell and beyond as a master storyteller permanently alters the world you thought you knew.
