From the genius of Thomas Harris, the #1 New York Times bestselling author who introduced the world to Hannibal Lecter, comes his terrifying and prophetic debut of an American who plans an act of terrorism at the Super Bowl--as the whole world watches. But in a mob of 80,000 people, how can they find him to stop him? The clock is ticking... The lives of 80,000 people gathered for Superbowl Sunday in New Orleans are threatened by a diabolical group of international terrorists. Spellbinding, fast-paced suspense is guaranteed once again from the acclaimed author of Silence of the Lambs.
Sin una razón de peso, el agente especial Jack Crawford no habría turbado la apacible existencia y el anonimato de Will Graham, el hombre que había conseguido desenmascarar al psicópata doctor Lecter, más conocido en los medios de comunicación como Hannibal el Caníbal. En efecto, las circunstancias que rodean los asesinatos de dos familias en Birmingham y en Atlanta convierten al investigador Graham en un hombre imprescindible del equipo de detectives que investigan el perfil psicológico del monstruo, el Dragón Rojo, y las horribles mutilaciones que inflige a sus víctimas.
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.

The childhood, teenage and young adult years of Hannibal Lecter, and how he became death's prodigy
Transactional Analysis delineates three observable ego-states (Parent, Adult, and Child) as the basis for the content and quality of interpersonal communication. "Happy childhood" notwithstanding, says Harris, most of us are living out the Not ok feelings of a defenseless child, dependent on ok others (parents) for stroking and caring. At some stage early in our lives we adopt a "position" about ourselves and others that determines how we feel about everything we do. And for a huge portion of the population, that position is "I'm Not OK -- You're OK." This negative "life position," shared by successful and unsuccessful people alike, contaminates our rational Adult capabilities, leaving us vulnerable to inappropriate emotional reactions of our Child and uncritically learned behavior programmed into our Parent. By exploring the structure of our personalities and understanding old decisions, Harris believes we can find the freedom to change our lives.
