Hannibal Rising - Thomas Harris

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

He is one of the most haunting characters - in all of literature. At last, the evolution of his evil is revealed. Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck.

He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki. Lady Murasaki helps Hannibal to heal. With her help he flourishes, becoming the youngest person ever admitted to medical school in France.

But Hannibal's demons visit him and torment him. When he is old enough, he visits them in turn. He discovers he has gifts beyond the academic, and in that epiphany, Hannibal Lecter becomes death's prodigy.

      Comments about Hannibal Rising:

      This was my introduction to the Hannibal books. I've seen The Silence of the Lambs on film but never read any of the books and I'm glad I started with this one as it appears to be the beginning. One of the most fascinating imaginary characters of all time. I couldn't put it down and look forward enthusiastically to the rest of them. Being an avid Stephen King reader has prepared me for the all gruesomeness ( and yes there is a bit ) Only for those with a strong fortitude!
