Hannibal

Hannibal is a novel written by Thomas Harris, published in 1999. It is the third in his series featuring his iconic character Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the cannibalistic serial killer, and the second to feature FBI Special Agent Clarice Starling. The novel takes place seven years after the events of The Silence of the Lambs and deals with the intended revenge of one of Hannibal Lecter‘s victims. It was adapted as a film of the same name in 2001, directed by Ridley Scott.

It has 102 chapters – although confusingly, it goes straight from 100 to 102 in my copy and then gives chapter 103… can anyone with a copy to hand shed any light?

The Last Juror

From Wikipedia:

The Last Juror is a 2004 legal thriller novel by John Grisham, first published by Doubleday on February 3, 2004.[1]

The story is set in the fictional town of Clanton, Mississippi from 1970 to 1979. Clanton is also the venue for John Grisham’s first novel A Time To Kill which was published in 1989. Some of the characters appear in both novels with the same occupation and characteristics. Although A Time to Kill was published sixteen years before The Last Juror, it was set in the present, so presumably it took place in 1985 or 1986. Therefore the characters which appear in both novels, such as Lucien Wilbanks and Harry Rex Vonner, have matured in A Time to Kill. Harry Rex Vonner also appears in the novel The Summons, published in 2002, as an advisor of the protagonist Ray Atlee.
