Stephen King wrote of Red Dragon, the first novel in series: "The book simply comes at you and comes at you, finally leaving you shaken and sober and afraid on a deeper level than simple ‘thrills’ alone furnish." "Red Dragon is, quite simply, the most frightening book I have ever read, and surely belongs in the best 100 horror volumes. I’d be tempted to place it in the top ten It is an intensely visual novel, rich with sound and color and telling use of small detail to make large points. All of its characters are brilliantly portrayed and it is filled with gritty verisimilitude Read it, shiver at it, remember it-for you will be unable to forget it. It is as real as fiction can be and as frightening" (Horror 100 Best Books). Each book has been made into film, one of which, The Silence of the Lambs went on to win five Academy Awards.
