The new novel will be Thomas Harris’s first standalone thriller since Black Sunday was published in 1975. The book will be published in hardcover, ebook and audiobook on 21 May 2019, with Thomas Harris narrating the audio edition himself. The title and cover will be revealed this autumn.
In addition, Thomas’s thrillers Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Hannibal Rising are now available as ebooks in the UK for the very first time – so there’s never been a better time to discover these classic books or reread an old favourite!
Thomas Harris, perhaps best known for his character Hannibel Lecter, began his writing career as a reporter and editor covering crime in the United States and Mexico. He is the author of five novels with sales of over 30 million copies, and all his books have been made into films – including the multiple Oscar winner The Silence of The Lambs, starring Anthony Hopkins. He is, without a doubt, among the best and most influential American crime authors of all time.
Jason Arthur, Harris’s publisher, commented, ‘I’m thrilled to be publishing this new novel by Thomas Harris…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 thirteen years – his first non-Hannibal novel in over forty – will be a significant publishing event.’
