A resilient young woman must outwit a sadistic psychopath in this pulse-pounding thriller from the author of The Silence of the Lambs, a "master still at the top of his strange and chilling form" (Wall Street Journal). Twenty-five million dollars in cartel gold lies hidden beneath a mansion on the Miami Beach waterfront. Ruthless men have tracked it for years. Leading the pack is Hans-Peter Schneider. Driven by unspeakable appetites, he makes a living fleshing out the violent fantasies of other, richer men. Cari Mora, caretaker of the house, has escaped from the violence in her native country. She stays in Miami on a wobbly Temporary Protected Status, subject to the iron whim of ICE. She works at many jobs to survive. Beautiful, marked by war, Cari catches the eye of Hans-Peter as he closes in on the treasure. But Cari Mora has surprising skills, and her will to survive has been tested before. Monsters lurk in the crevices between male desire and female survival. No other writer in the last century has conjured those monsters with more terrifying brilliance than Thomas Harris. Cari Mora, his sixth novel, is the long-awaited return of an American master.… (mere)

Other than the now world famous Hannibal Lecter series, Harris hasn't really released a great deal (one other novel called Black Sunday in 1975). So when I saw a new publication I had to snap it up.

Cari Mora is a strange book. I don't know if the issue was that I expected a lot more from it but I was disappointed, the writing was at times jumbled and confusing, the plot jumpy and many of the characters fairly wooden. I suppose the best way I can sum up the book is that a few months after reading it, I can't really remember a great deal of what happened.

Cari Mora was a child soldier and used to brutality. These days she works in Miami on a temporary visa as a maid in a house previously owned by drug lord Escobar. Rumours have always been rife that there was a substantial amount of gold hidden around the property. This obviously creates unwanted attention from the type of people she needs to keep away from. Inevitable she becomes drawn into the various plots but can she stay alive?

I wonder how much attention and whether it would be a 'bestseller' if the author wasn't as well known. It has the odd moment of brilliance and a little of Harris previously used skills shines through which stops me giving a 1 rating. A more than fair 2 out of 5. ( )

Well I am disappointed. Really expected more out of Thomas Harris. That is not saying this is a bad book, it is just not what one would expect from a writer such as Thomas Harris. The writing is acceptable, the characters are more or less so so, even the primary character of the story is not sufficiently fleshed out to make the reader really warm up to her. The story concept is really good with the exception that in 300 some pages it does not do the story or the characters justice; it feels incomplete and like the strong bones of a really good 4 to 500 page thriller. Some thing is missing. It is almost like the energy is not in the story or writing. Hey, Thomas Harris can really write a tight very compelling thriller. This feels almost like he was forced to so some thing to complete a contract either that or he simply ran out of energy.

Not sorry I read this book as there are interesting ideas here and possibly some truly interesting characters all of which were not really brought to life, they are like a tired sigh after a hard day. ( )

I listened to this book on audio and it is yet another example of why authors should not read their works. Harris' voice was completely wrong for this and his attempts to do accents that his characters required were dismal. This was a short novel and thankfully so since it had not much substance. All incidents in this book seemed accidental and there was little character development beyond that of Cari. Not recommended. ( )

When I heard the latest novel by Thoma Harris had arrived, I scooped it up and my eyes devoured it in two nights. When I got to the last page I felt as if I had just eaten a piece of this totally bland piece of flan my wife purchased from the neighborhood Salvadorean deli. No sweetbreads here. All that was left was Cari Mora and I can't stop thinking of her. Thank you for introducing me, Mr. Harris. ( )

Cari Mora is not afraid, not anymore. Having been kidnapped as a kid and trained to become a child soldier for Colombia’s FARC, she knows how to survive even the most dangerous situations. She can read people, use weapons of all kinds and she knows that in order not to be killed, she at times needs to shoot others first. She has established a quiet life in Miami, always under the radar since she does not possess the necessary papers. When Hans-Peter Schneider and his crew appear, things become complicated. A war of gangs breaks out, sadist Schneider as well as his opponent Don Ernesto want to dig out some gold barrels which are supposed to be deposited in a house which formerly belonged to Pablo Escobar, leader of the famous Medellin Cartel. Cari soon find herself between the front lines.

It took Tomas Harris thirteen years after his last instalment of the Hannibal Lecter series to come up with a new novel. Having totally adored “Red Dragon” and “The Silence of the Lambs” and its successors, I was eager to read this novel. Even though the topic is completely different, I expected some cruel thrill and highly complex characters. Yet, my expectations were not really met and for the rating, it only ranges somewhere between three and four stars.

There were some aspects I found really interesting to read. Cari Mora’s backstory as a child soldier was exciting and appalling at the same time and Harris integrated this part quite well into the actual plot line. She certainly is some noteworthy character and the conflicting traits - on the one hand, the ruthless child who learnt how to kill, on the other hand, the caring woman and her way of treating plants and animals which shows her high capacity of empathy – make her a strong protagonist.

However, the main topic is the fight between the two gangs which is, unfortunately, very poorly narrated. Even though Schneider first appears to be a fascinating character with his tendency to torture, this is not really developed further. Thus, the gang fight remains on the highly superficial “we shoot some of you, then you react in the same way” level. This is a bit uninspired and maybe works better in film than in a book.

It is easy to recognise Thomas Harris’ hand in the novel, but he surely can do a lot better than that. ( )
