"Praise for Hannibal: Quite simply a compelling and brilliant thriller" * Daily Mirror * "The thrills, horror, sly erudition and sheer exquisite writing make this so much more than another serial killer novel ... [It] reaches almost sublime levels of gothic grandeur at its conclusion. If only all bestsellers were so rewarding" * Guardian * "A masterpiece... Chillingly brilliant" * Observer * "Quite simply this is the best-written thriller to dominate the market in years ... A literary evocation of the diabolical to compare with Goethe and Gogol. Honestly" * The Times * "A gut-churning, nail-biting, skin-crawling, often lyrical triumph - addictive on every level" * Daily Express *
