"The first novel in Harris’s widely acclaimed Hannibal series, Red Dragon added a sense of realism to the crime novel while injecting it with a heavy dose of horror. Harris took criminology classes to prepare for the novel, while working closely with FBI Behavioral Science agents. His extensive research was poured into creating one of the most iconic villains in history: Hannibal Lecter."
In Red Dragon, former FBI profiler Will Graham comes out of retirement to apprehend a serial killer known as "The Tooth Fairy," but to do so he must enlist the help of Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer with whom he has a dark past.
As we all know, the success of Red Dragon led to two sequels and a prequel in the Hannibal series. In 2002, the book was adapted into a film starring Anthony Hopkins and Edward Norton, directed by Brett Ratner.
