From the creator of Hannibal Lecter and The Silence of the Lambs comes a story of evil, greed, and the consequences of dark obsession. Twenty-five million dollars in cartel gold lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront. Ruthless men have tracked it for years. Leading the pack is Hans-Peter Schneider. Driven by unspeakable appetites, he makes a living fleshing out the violent fantasies of other, richer men. Cari Mora, caretaker of the house, has escaped from the violence in her native country. She stays in Miami on a wobbly Temporary Protected Status, subject to the iron whim of ICE. She works at many jobs to survive. Beautiful, marked by war, Cari catches the eye of Hans-Peter as he closes in on the treasure. But Cari Mora has surprising skills, and her will to survive has been tested before. Monsters lurk in the crevices between male desire and female survival. No other writer in the last century has conjured those monsters with more terrifying brilliance than Thomas Harris. Cari Mora, his sixth novel, is the long-awaited return of an American master.

"The author of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and RED DRAGON lends insight and a gentle delivery to his new story of unbound greed and warped obsession. The gambit involving a psychopathic killer and a young woman in search of 25 million dollars in cartel gold that lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront is both entertaining and engaging. Harris uses his soft and intimate voice to create a sense of looming danger and dread amid the heat and humidity of Miami. His new creation is not as sophisticated as Hannibal Lecter, but Hans-Peter Schneider is as casual in his violence and just as chilling. R.O. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
