________________________________ 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. ________________________________ 'As good as ever. Reading his prose is like running a slow hand down cold silk.' STEPHEN KING ‘The last two decades of 19th century popular fiction were dominated by Conan Doyle and Sherlock Homes. A century on, suspense literature has achieved their equals in Thomas Harris.’ GUARDIAN ‘Harris’s writing bears the hallmarks of honed perfection.’ THE TIMES 'The good news for readers of Cari Mora is that Hannibal is here in spirit if not in person ... What his fans look for is here – turned up to 11.' SPECTATOR 'A tense heist thriller ... Harris’s best since The Silence of the Lambs’ NEW STATESMAN 'Cari Mora reinforces the brilliance of an author who can carve a piece of art from the placement of words on a page to form a narrative that scorches the mind, and makes one think.' SHOTS MAGAZINE 'A literary event ... Thomas Harris is a supreme thriller writer – for not only does he create memorable and monstrous villains, but he also gives us formidable female protagonists ... Violent, brutal and action-packed, yet told with Harris’s typical wry wit, it crackles from first page to last.' DAILY MAIL 'A cavalcade of the grotesque, with murderous figures that make Hannibal the Cannibal, the Tooth Fairy and Buffalo Bill appear like upright citizens from small-town America ... Hollywood directors will be dreaming of a golden windfall by putting this page-clawing thriller on to the big screen. Harris is a superlative storyteller with an eye for the director’s cut.' DAILY EXPRESS 'Thomas Harris, the creator of Hannibal Lecter, is the greatest thriller writer of our time ... An expertly delivered and fast-paced thriller, full of distinctively Harrisian inflections' EVENING STANDARD 'A gripping tale of lost cartel gold ... No shortage of physical action ... Harris delivers a narrative that is absolutely cut to the bone' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Pulse-boosting suspense ...Harris’s flavourful prose: laconic, tough-guy Hemingway one moment ... then veering off into imagery of a Baroque luxuriance ... Harris evokes the poetry of everyday life – especially the natural world.' i NEWS

Film history is merged with psychiatric history seamlessly, to show how and why bad depictions of mind doctors (especially hypnotists) occur in early film, long before Hannibal Lecter burst upon the scene. The German Expressionist Dr. Caligari is not cinema’s first psychotic charlatan, but he launches the stereotype of screen psychiatrists who are sicker than their patients. Many film psychiatrists function as political metaphors, while many more reflect real life clinical controversies. This book discusses films with diabolical drugging, unethical experimentation, involuntary incarceration, sexual exploitation, lobotomies, “shock schlock,” conspiracy theories and military medicine, to show how fact informs fantasy, and when fantasy trumps reality. Traditional asylum thrillers changed after hospital stays shortened and laws protected people against involuntary commitment. Except for six short “golden years” from 1957 to 1963, portrayals of bad psychiatrists far outnumber good ones and this book tells how and why that was.
