Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Cari Mora, written and read by Thomas Harris.
________________________________
________________________________
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

I had hoped for a bit more,

but I must say I look forward to the movie.

Don't misunderstand me, this is still THE Thomas Harris and is probably one of the best novels to come out this year, but having been a fan for twenty years or more, I can't help but pine a bit for the days of Hannibal and Black Sunday. The character development and the plot both felt rushed and the entire novel was easily finished during my shift at the factory.

Reasonable

I was very excited about this book. I agreed with the other reviewers who say that this author, who reads himself, should probably give way to another reader. For me it flattened the whole experience. All in all I found the story lacked real pace and depth and the characters lacked synergy, motive and cohesion but that could again be something to do with the reading performance. Not a page turner for me but something I dutifully plodded back to in the hope of an upturn. It’s not a book that will particularly remain with me and I sincerely hope other readers get much more out of it than I did. Worth a try but manage your expectations.

Good old fashioned storytelling.

I think I must have listened to a different book from others! I loved it and I absolutely loved the narration too.
I loved Cari and her parakeet and the cast of characters.
If you love Thomas Harris, and I do, you'll love this book right up to the exciting end!

Could have been better

Narration was awful - leave to the professionals. Story was ok but everything was rushed and a bit unclear...but that could also have been due to the narration

A Distant Protagonist

Harris is know for his fantastic writer quality and its all there. However, our title protagonist Cari is left hidden in a cast of much better characters and another brilliant antagonist.

A real disappointment

After reading and listening to the lector series which I loved, I expected to be drawn into another dark novel with unsettling , well-written characters. Sadly I was wrong! I liked the fact the author read the book as he would be the one to understand and better express his work but still I found myself drifting from boredom and confusion. The times I forced myself to concentrate, I could not understand what was occurring or who was talking to whom. With every new chapter, I had to check back I hadn’t missed some of the story accidentally as the book seemed to jump about constantly but never really move forward with the plot. Most of the characters were shallow and similar to each other so I was unable to tell them apart. I am still not entirely sure why the book was named after the lady in the story as she was dull and seemed somewhat insignificant and hardly a heroine figure. A real disappointment for Harris I’m sad to say.
