More about the book!
Penguin Random House has revealed the cover for Cari Mora, the new novel from Thomas Harris, bestselling author and creator of The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal!
Cari Mora is Harris’s sixth novel, and marks his comeback after a 13 year hiatus. It will be published in May.
Jason Arthur, publisher of William Heinemann, Hutchinson and Windmill, said he was ‘thrilled’ to be publishing Cari Mora.
‘There is no doubt in my mind that Thomas Harris remains one of the most notable writers of the last four decades, and the publication of his first novel in 13 years – his first non-Hannibal novel in over 40 – will be a significant publishing event,’ Arthur said.
About the book
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.
