A resilient young woman must outwit a sadistic psychopath in this pulse-pounding thriller from the author of The Silence of the Lambs, a "master still at the top of his strange and chilling form" (Wall Street Journal).

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.


  • Horrible

    By F690
    Worst book I have ever read. No point to the story. Boring. What a waste of money.
  • What a Dud

    I should have stopped reading this garbage after the 4th chapter or so but I suffered thru it. I couldn't stand all of the Spanish lines in the book because I can't read Spanish! The story was stupid and boring. I still don't care who the good guys and bad guys were. Best to pass on the lame book

    The lack of detail made this difficult to read. I made it to chapter 5 and gave up.
  • Classic Harris

    Another great, twisted novel that I couldn’t put down. Wish he wrote more frequently but I’ll appreciate what he gives us. 😀
  • Good read!

    I enjoyed this book a lot. Starting with “Black Sunday”, Harris has always created memorable monsters and this book is no exception. I read the energetically negative reviews and hesitated before purchasing but am glad I went ahead. Enjoy the book for what it is and don’t waste a lot of energy comparing.

    Too many characters for such a short book. Disappointing and dull. Unnecessarily gross.

    This was worth reading but not as exceptional as expected. The violence and sadism seem contrived. The characters are not fully realized. It’s as if it were not quite ready; an outline for a better effort.
  • So disappointed

    I was looking fwd to reading this book. I’m not even sure I can force myself to finish third chapter. I have no idea what storyline is supposed to be Or who main characters are.... I rarely give up on a book. .. so,I may come back to it and try again later. Right now I’m just totally disappointed. Nothing like his earlier books.
