Where Hannibal gets his taste for killing!

Prepare the Chianti and fava beans. Books and Nachos is having a month long meal with author Thomas Harris and his seminal creation Dr. Hannibal Lecter. As a companion podcast to the current movie review series over at, Stuart In LA is cracking the spines on the four novels that inspired the five films to feature the caged cannibal. 

The 2006 novel Hannibal Rising delves into the memory palace of Lecter's mind to unlock the secret traumas that drive his thirst for vengeance and human flesh. Can this blunt little tool dissect our favorite serial killer, or will the prequel leave a bad taste in readers' mouths? Join Stuart for the final conversation in this series to find out!
