Hannibal Rising : (Hannibal Lecter) Paperback / softback
Part of the Hannibal Lecter series
_________________________HANNIBAL LECTER WASN'T BORN A MONSTER. HE WAS MADE ONE. Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front of World War II, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck.
He will not speak of what happened to him and his family.
He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France.
There, Hannibal lives with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki, who helps him to heal - and flourish. But Hannibal's demons are not so easily defeated. Throughout his young life, they visit him and torment him.
When he is old enough, he visits them in turn - and in the fog of traumatic memory, he discovers that he has gifts far beyond what he imagined...
