A masterpiece of suspense and a terrifying study of pure evil, The Silence of the Lambs is a living nightmare - but you won't want it to end. A killer is attacking women across the USA. His methods are horrifying, his motives unknown; he has a purpose, but no one can fathom it. No one except Dr Hannibal Lecter, brilliant psychiatrist and homicidal genius, now confined in strict isolation in a hospital for the criminally insane. Clarice Starling, a young FBI trainee, is assigned to interview Lecter, to match her wits against his in a race against time to save another young woman from the grotesque fate that has befallen the previous victims. 338 pages.
