The Return of Hannibal Lecter

Exciting news today on the publishing front. Thomas Harris, who usually takes a decade to produce a book, will return only 6 years after the much-excoriated Hannibal.

The book, to be called Behind the Mask, will be published next fall by Bantam Dell. I was one of the few people who actually dug Hannibal, but even if I hadn't, I'd still be eager to read this one.

Red Dragon and Silence of the Lambs established Thomas Harris as one of the finest writers of psychological suspense and he is still the market setter in this corner of the genre.
