His mother describes him as "the most gentle person I have ever known" . . . Who really is the man behind Hannibal Lecter?
Thomas Harris is the great melodramatist of our time, author of the definitive thrillers of the last 20 years. 'The Silence Of The Lambs' alone has sold more than 12 million copies worldwide. And yet Harris's phenomenal success has been achieved without any personal publicity whatsoever. He has never given an interview.
In this gripping - and sometimes chilling - profile, David Sexton exploits every possible source to get to the bottom of Harris's monstrous genius: who really is the man behind Hannibal Lecter?
