The Hannibal Lecter Omnibus
does exactly what it says on the tin--collects together the three classic thrillers by Thomas Harris' featuring the world's most distinguished serial killer Hannibal Lecter. The good doctor settles for a supporting role in the first book Red Dragon
, assisting an FBI agent in tracking down a notorious murderer but his impact is still just as chilling. In The Silence of the Lambs
, Lecter is enlisted by rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling to help her profile and track another dangerous killer. What starts out as a routine interview develops into an unnatural obsession between both Lecter and Starling--the book is as much about Starling's own mission as it is about the twisted fascination she holds for him, which in turn fuels his interest in her. Clarice and Starling are reunited again in Hannibal
as the doctor, now living, but still killing, in Vienna, is hunted down by one of his surviving and horribly scarred victims. The limits of Starling and Lecter's relationship reach horrific and sickening levels in the much-debated climax. A bulky, but worthwhile collection showcasing the most imaginative image of evil personified in modern fiction. --Jonathan Weir
