Thomas Harris - Red Dragon - 1st 1st - Hannibal Lector - Author Silence of Lambs. Red Dragon Movie Tie-In Harris, Thomas Audio Cassette.

In the realm of psychological suspense, Thomas Harris stands alone. exploring both the nature of human evil and the nerve-racking anatomy of forensic investigation, Harris unleashes a frightening vision of the dark side of our well-lighted world. In this extraordinary tale -- which preceded The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, Harris introduced the unforgettable character Dr. Hannibal Lecter. And in it, Will Graham -- the FBI man who hunted Lecter down -- risks his sanity and his life to duel a killer called...

The Red Dragon

A quiet summer night...a neat suburban house...and another happy family is shattered -- the latest victims of a grisly series of hideous sacrificial killings that no one understands, and no one can stop. Nobody lives to tell of the unimaginable carnage. Only the blood-stained walls bear witness.

All hope rests on the Special Agent Will Graham, who must peer inside the killer's tortured soul to understand his rage, to anticipate and prevent his next vicious crime. Desperate for help, Graham finds himself locked in a deadly alliance with the brilliant Dr. Hannibal Lecter -- the infamous mass murderer who Graham put in prison years ago. As the imprisoned Lecter tightens the reins of revenge, Graham's feverish pursuit of the Red Dragon draws him inside the warped mind of a psychopath,, into an unforgettable world of demonic ritual and violence, beyond the limits of human terror.

  • I took my time reading this book, not because I had to but because I enjoyed stringing out the suspense - I rationed myself to a chapter a day. The story is gripping and the writing evocative - it stimulated my imagination like a vindaloo for the brain. Some of the American cultural references were too obscure for me but they were few and in context. Hannibal Lecter is peripheral to the story, lurking in the shadows with intensely cold and enigmatic eyes (in my mind anyway). All in all, a fabulous read, thoroughly enjoyable. If you like the kind of horror/thrillers that don't splash blood and guts all over the place at every turn "for effect", this will suit you down to the ground. The thrill is more in the suspense than the shock.

  • Despite enormous personal costs, Will Graham uses his unique talents of visual memory, pure empathy, and projection to get into the head of serial killers. In order to capture Francis Dolarhyde, The Red Dragon, who has slaughtered two families, Graham elicits the help of Hannibal Lecter, a serial killer he helped put away. Lecter, however, has his own agenda.

    Harris does an excellent job of showing Dolarhyde’s evolution from unwanted baby into adult serial killer.

    Fascinated with serial killer books, I devoured RED DRAGON and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS a couple of decades ago, along with every Patricia Cornwell book I could get my hands on. Recently, on the recommendation of a good friend, I binged watched all three seasons of the television show Hannibal, which is based on Harris’s works. When I reread RED DRAGON, all of the characters morphed into the brilliant portrayals of the television cast of Hannibal. The ghosts of character incarnations from the previous films are forever banished from my brain. Thomas Harris created memorable characters, which Bryan Fuller made magic.

    I’ve got all my fingers and toes crossed that Fuller continues to reimagine Thomas Harris’s books and has the opportunity to bring his vision to life on the big or small screen with his phenomenal cast. In the meantime, I plan to continue forward with Harris’s books. My rating of four stars is for the novel, RED DRAGON. Five shining stars for Bryan Fuller’s adaptation, which delves deep into all the character’s psyches’.

  • My original copy cover did not not have the Blake illustration on it. I remember going to a nearby city library and having the reference librarian help me find a book with a copy of the illustration. He asked why I was looking for it, and I merely said that it was referenced in a book that I was reading, and that I was curious about it.
    He said he had asked because I was the second person that had come to the library, looking for the same information.
    This was, of course, before home computers and the internet. It made that much of an impression.
    Hannibal Lecter was a horrible, but secondary character.
    I actually prefer this book to "Silence of the Lambs".
    Read both of them, and make up your own mind.

  • Commercial fiction is the bin in which Publishing tosses any book it doesn’t consider High Art. But to say Thomas Harris’s RED DRAGON is just another frivolous piece of commercial fiction would be like saying THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA is just another fishing tale. This is the book that all other serial killer thrillers should be compared to. It is, quite simply, the Gold Standard.

    Two families have been murdered in separate cities, drawing the FBI into a manhunt. Will Graham is an investigator who briefly worked with the bureau, until a run-in with the inimitable Hannibal Lecter left him near death and unwilling to pursue America’s monsters any further. Content to spend his days peacefully in Florida, Graham wants to decline to the invitation to track down another psychopath, but the brutality of the killings, and the certainty of future victims, force him to join the task force seeking the killer who soon becomes known as the Red Dragon.

    The villain in this story is the best kind - the terrifying, intelligent, and hauntingly human kind. With the stakes mounting and the tension becoming almost unbearable in its knuckle-biting swiftness, the plot hurtles toward an uncertain conclusion. The fact that the novel’s most famous character, Hannibal Lecter, is merely a sideshow in this macabre carnival is a testament to how riveting and excellent RED DRAGON is.

    Call my review hyperbole. Call it another bit of overheated cant from a Harris fanboy. But read the book. If your pulse remains at a resting heart rate, seek medical attention immediately.

    RED DRAGON is an eloquent, gripping contribution to American Literature (and yes, that is a capital L).

  • My interest in this book stemmed from watching the NBC show Hannibal. Luckily, the book also contained a lot of the gruesome and twisted elements that makes the show so interesting.

    Although this is considered the prequel to Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal Lector doesn't play too prominent of a role here. Instead, it's about a different killer (The Tooth Fairy aka Red Dragon) and Will Graham/Crawford's hunt to find him. Talking about some of the things the killer does would spoil the surprise and suspense of the book, but suffice to say, there were some cringe-worthy moments that literally had me squirming as I read them. On top of that, all of the main characters are incredibly intelligent, not leaving you with moments asking, "why would they do that?"

    It's not done in the style of a murder mystery, as you're aware of who the killer is and follow him for large chunks of the book. It's more of a suspenseful book that keeps you wondering how they'll catch him.

    Obviously, this book isn't for everyone as it contains a lot of sick and gruesome things that many people won't be able to take. However, if you're able to put up with that, you'll find a great book that assumes the reader is intelligent and doesn't hold your hand.
