Black Sunday
This is the 1975 debut novel from Harris, who went on to write Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal. Black Sunday pits an American Vietnam veteran of dubious sanity and PLO terrorist accomplices against a ruthless Israeli security agent and the FBI in a race to kill the 80,000...

Hannibal
Horror lit's head chef Harris serves up another course in his Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter trilogy, and it's a pièce de résistance for those with strong stomachs. In the first book, Red Dragon (filmed as Manhunter), Hannibal diabolically helps the FBI track a fascinating serial...

Newport Serial Killer
The Newport Serial Killer relates the tale of a grisly series of murders which take place in Newport, Rhode Island. There are no clues as Police Lieutenant Clayhill and his partner, Sergeant Souza, struggle to discover and apprehend the brutal murderer of three young women, each murder taking place on a national holiday. Many leads and many interrogations lead nowhere until finally a confession is received. The confessed killer, Lloyd Krubick, is quickly tried, convicted and sentenced to a life term in prison, where in a short time he is killed by other prisoners...

Psycho Paths - Tracking the Serial Killer through contemporary American Film & Fiction
Philip L. Simpson provides an original and broad overview of the evolving serial killer genre in the two media most responsible for its popularity: literature and cinema of the 1980s and 1990s...

Red Dragon
Lying on a cot in his cell with Alexandre Dumas's Le Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine open on his chest, Hannibal "The Cannibal" Lecter makes his debut in this legendary horror novel, which is even better than its sequel, The Silence of the Lambs. As in Silence, the pulse-pounding suspense plot involves a hypersensitive FBI sleuth who consults psycho psychiatrist Lecter for clues to catching a killer on the loose...

Sex and the Serial Killer
When her husband of fifteen ears deserts her for his married high school sweetheart, Roberta Jones Spivey changes her looks, shortens her name and follows her soon-to-be ex. He'll be sorry he left when the newly svelte Bobbie Jones moves into town!...

Silence in the Shadows
William seems to be a normal teenage high school boy growing up in New York City. He rides the bus to school, gets his homework done, arrives to work on time at a local pizza parlor and helps his aunt and uncle, William’s legal guardians since the death of his parents, with the chores around the house.

Silence of the Lambs
The Silence of the Lambs, by Thomas Harris, is even better than the successful movie. Like his earlier Red Dragon, the book takes us inside the world of professional criminal investigation. All the elements of a well-executed thriller are working here--driving suspense, compelling characters, inside information, publicity-hungry bureaucrats thwarting the search, and the clock ticking relentlessly down toward the death of another young woman. What enriches this well-told tale is the opportunity to live inside the minds of both the crime fighters and the criminals as each struggles in a prison of pain and seeks, sometimes violently, relief...
