Red Dragon review

Red Dragon - Thomas Harris

This is going to be a fanboy review, but I adore Thomas Harris. He exemplifies everything I want to be as a writer(if I can ever call myself that): economy and completeness. You don't lose any details of the story, but he dosen't weigh you down with boring, page-skipping unnecessaries. This is the prequel to The Silence of the Lambs, and the events here get a passing mention at the very start of that book, but this story is excellent in itself.
