Horror, fiction, suspense.

His name is Buffalo Bill and he kidnapped another potential victim. Clarice must interview and get assistance from an associate of Buffalo Bill whom may give answers to catching Buffalo Bill before it’s too late. Doctor Hannibal Lector not only helps Clarice but somehow got into her head. Both the cooperation of Hannibal and Clarice, the woman is saved, and Buffalo Bill was brought to justice. Doctor Hannibal Lector escapes and writes to her.
I really love Thomas Harris for producing this incredible horror fiction. I had seen the movie as well and both versions are perfect. I wouldn’t suggest one to read this lightly because it gets heavy and complicated till the end. Do not read this after dark or one might get the chills and spooked by shadows. I sure did make that mistake and couldn’t go to sleep right away after binge reading this novel. I highly recommend the book if one is looking for sinister horror. This is one of my favorite horror fiction by far.
