After watching Hannibal on Netflix, I found myself itching to know more. I decided to delve into the world of Thomas Harris and explore this dark world from the beginning.
I was entertained that this first Hannibal story was the beginning, and yet it was the ending for the TV/streaming show.
The show followed the book closely, with only a few changes that I noticed. I found the story engaging, though the show added an even darker element to the tale. Overall, I was satisfied with the adventure and I am considering continuing the series.
You can find the story on Amazon in multiple formats.
Synopsis: FBI agent Will Graham once risked his sanity to capture Hannibal Lecter, an ingenious killer like no other. Now, he’s following the bloodstained pattern of the Tooth Fairy, a madman who’s already wiped out two families.
To find him, Graham has to understand him. To understand him, Graham has only one place left to go: the mind of Dr. Lecter.
