Micro review: 'Cari Mora' by Thomas Harris

Hannibal Lecter-author Thomas Harris is again together with his much-awaited 6th e-book Cari Mora, after a gap of 13 years. But Harris' Cari Mora is not in regards to the iconic fictional monster which used to be first offered to us in his 1975 debut novel Black Sunday.
Cari Mora is a tale of a young lady named Caridad 'Cari' Mora. After surviving the violence in her native country, Cari is now living in Miami as an immigrant and is working as a caretaker of a mansion which as soon as belonged to drug dealer Pablo Escobar. It is assumed that the haunted space has Escobar's gold and treasure worth $25 million hidden beneath it. On the other hand, Hans-Peter Schneider is a trafficker who mutilates women and also possesses a machine to liquify and cremate his victims. When he and his co-workers rent the home to make a movie, Cari knows what they are in fact searching for. Cari catches Hans-Peter's eye, and she or he is now compelled to stay alive with talents which she discovered in her darkish past.

After Hannibal Lecter, Harris introduces his readers to a brand new monster named Hans-Peter Schneider in Cari Mora.

How critics view the e-book:

Marcel Berlins write for The Times, "Thomas Harris’s latest super-villain plumbs new depths of ghastliness."

Jake Kerridge writes for Telegraph.co.uk, "Thomas Harris's new novel Cari Mora is Lecter-free — and in the long run forgettable".

Jeff Ayers writes for the Associated Press, "Readers who are fans of "Red Dragon" and "Silence of the Lambs" will be disappointed in Harris's first novel to not feature Lecter since his debut, "Black Sunday," which was released in 1975. Ultimately this book will be remembered primarily for its look at the Miami area amid carnage, greed, the plight of immigrants and survival."

Sarah Ditum writes for The Guardian, "The shocking truth about this Miami-set thriller, featuring an avocado-eating hitman and a woman with a Dark Past, is how dull it is."

Don Oldenburg writes for USA Today, "The author cut his literary teeth on Hannibal cannibalism; that hunger continues in "Cari Mora," though not the main course. Hans-Peter is a literary cousin of Hannibal Lecter, but he is no Hannibal Lecter."

John Connolly writes for The Irish Times, " Cari Mora is never boring, since the sensibility of its writer is just too extraordinary for that, but it's careless and underwritten. The shallowness of its characterisation signifies that its violence comes across as simple sadism: bloodthirstiness for its personal sake, a chain of brutal, if comic, tableaux for the loads."
