He chilled us in Red Dragon…

Thrilled us in Silence of the Lambs…

Shocked us to our souls in Hannibal…

We have a love/hate relationship with Hannibal Lecter. He’s a fiend, yet he strikes primarily at targets we ourselves would want to eliminate (if in a perhaps more gentle way). So, how does a young boy become a monster? Hannibal Rising tells us what made him what he is, the stunning brutality, the pain, the dark places that must not be entered…

On the eve of WW II, Count Lecter and his family—including brilliant young son, Hannibal, and his beloved baby sister—live a prosperous and peaceful life on their ancestral estate in Lithuania. But as the war approaches, all their lives will change—or end—very soon. Betrayed by local collaborationists at their rustic hunting lodge, Hannibal and his family endure unimaginable horrors. Hannibal survives—though at what cost, he doesn’t yet realize—and by the war’s end makes his way to Paris where his uncle lives in bohemian splendor. Fiercely loyal to the last of his family, Hannibal finally finds a measure of peace. But, there are monsters hiding behind human faces, monsters that force Hannibal to begin his own descent into savagery—into vengeance, at any cost.

Shocking and utterly riveting, Hannibal Rising will take you through the blood-soaked hell that made a man into the most complex character in all suspense fiction. Explicit violence, subject matter.
