From the creator of Hannibal Lecter and The Silence of the Lambs comes a story of evil, greed, and the consequences of dark obsession. 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 US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A good, fiendish read.” USA Today
Harris has created a sense of dreadful intimacy that we cannot escape.” Washington Post
“A spine-tingling, edge-of-your-seat ride steeped in intrigue and nail-biting suspense. You will not sleep. You will not eat. This book screams to be devoured in one sitting.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“The author of Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon lends insight and a gentle delivery to his new story of unbound greed and warped obsession…Harris uses his soft and intimate voice to create a sense of looming danger and dread amid the heat and humidity of Miami. His new creation is not as sophisticated as Hannibal Lecter, but Hans-Peter Schneider is as casual in his violence and just as chilling.” AudioFile
As cinematic as one might expect, charged with smugglers and lawmen, gruesome deaths, and deceit that crisscrosses the ocean between Columbia and Miami…Harris is a masterful storyteller who knows exactly how to get under our skin and into our heads.” Amazon.com
"[A] penetrating exploration of signature themes—the nature of evil, the persistence of trauma, and the strange, fateful gravity that so often seems to exist between individuals on either side of law and morality…Cari Mora will keep readers up all night in the best possible way.” CrimeReads
