Free sample

Todo empezó con la venganza...

Thomas Harris, autor de El silencio de los corderos y Hannibal, nos narra en esta novela la juventud de Hannibal Lecter.

Hannibal Lecter, huérfano y testigo de barbaridades indescriptibles, sobrevive al vendaval de la Segunda Guerra Mundial en Europa del Este. Al terminar el conflicto su tío le localiza en un orfanato soviético y lo lleva a París para vivir con él y su bella esposa, lady Murasaki. Ella le cuida y, con su apoyo, Hannibal se convertirá en el alumno más joven y más dotado de la facultad de medicina de París. Sin embargo, él nunca podrá olvidar lo que ha vivido. Sus demonios lo atormentan constantemente y exigen venganza. Y el joven estudiante comienza a desarrollar sorprendentes y exquisitos talentos para cumplirla.

«Con precisión de cirujano, Harris abre su palabra diseccionadora, analítica y eficaz, creando una atmósfera de suspense que atrapa al lector y le conduce por las estancias del palacio de la mente de un ser terrible.»

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.
