5.0 out of 5 stars Instagram| @Booked.Everynight
By Crime Book Investigator on November 2, 2018
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Hello Clarice. I have no plans to call on you, Clarice. The world's more interesting with you in it. So you take care now to extend me the same courtesy. 😱

Clarice Starling is a top student at the FBI's training academy. Agent Jack Crawford wants Clarice to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant psychiatrist & violent psychopath, serving a life sentence behind bars for multiple murders & you guessed it... cannibalism. Crawford believes that Lecter may have insight into a case involving the murder of several women. When a well to-do’s daughter is kidnapped, Starling is believed to be just the FBI agent for the job. As a young woman she may be the perfect person to convince Lecter to help them better understand the unsub before it’s too late for another young girl. This is one of the great classic book & movie combos for a reason- it’s creepy AF! Two vicious murderers- one behind bars you so desperately want insight from, one on the loose you’re desperate to stop, & one kick ass fearless female who will have you silent as a lamb as she solves her case & makes a ‘killer’ new friend.

I do wish we could chat longer, but I’m having an old friend for dinner!
