Even if you think a book can't really scare you lock the door and leave the bright lights on when you read this book. A serial killer is on the loose. He bites, he maims, he murders entire families in hideous ways. The police have no leads. They're afraid they can't stop him. That's why FBI agent Will Graham has come out of retirement. He has a special talent for catching serial murderers. The last one, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, nearly killed him. Maybe you've heard of Dr. Lecter? Even in jail, he's still dangerous. Graham knows that. But he's going to ask for Dr. Lecter's help. And it may be the most terrifying mistake of his life. . . " The author's second book, and the first to introduce the character Hannibal Lecter, who was featured in The Silence of the Lambs. Red Dragon was the basis for the movie "Manhunter" in 1986 and then for the 2002 film adaptation under the book's original title. Fine in a fine dust jacket. 348 pages.
