Thrill in the ‘Ville Book Club: Throwback Thriller with Silence of the Lambs!
September 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
For Summerville lovers of mystery and thrillers, our Thrill in the ‘Ville Book Club meets on the second Tuesday of each month, September 8th this month! All are welcome…
Next up is a throwback thriller choice to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the nearly legendary The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris, featuring the extraordinary Hannibal Lecter.
The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestselling classic, now with a note by author Thomas Harris revealing his inspiration for Hannibal Lecter.
A serial murderer known only by a grotesquely apt nickname–Buffalo Bill–is stalking particular women. He has a purpose, but no one can fathom it, for the bodies are discovered in different states. Clarice Starling, a young trainee at the F.B.I. Academy, is surprised to be summoned by Jack Crawford, Chief of the Bureau’s Behavioral Science section. Her assignment: to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist and grisly killer now kept under close watch in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. Lecter’s insight into the minds of murderers could help track and capture Buffalo Bill.
Smart and attractive, Starling is shaken to find herself in a strange, intense relationship with the acutely perceptive Lecter. His cryptic clues launch Clarice on a search that every reader will find startling, harrowing, and totally compelling.
An ingenious, masterfully written novel, The Silence of the Lambs is a classic of suspense and storytelling.
