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.… (plus d'informations)

Well, wasn't this just a big fat smelly bucket of nope?

Honestly, I listened to the first 25% and realized precisely how non-affecting it was when I realized I'd been mentally skipping away from the story almost since the beginning, and, listening to a particular section, I couldn't begin to remember what was going on.

The characters were unimpactful. The story was unimpactful. I was wasting my time.

So, I pulled the plug at 25%. I can't believe this is the same guy that wrote [b:Red Dragon|28877|Red Dragon (Hannibal Lecter, #1)|Thomas Harris|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1289342619l/28877._SY75_.jpg|925503] and [b:The Silence of the Lambs|23807|The Silence of the Lambs (Hannibal Lecter, #2)|Thomas Harris|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1565096163l/23807._SY75_.jpg|22533]. Then again, he did drive a brilliant two book idea straight into the ground with the next two pieces of crap, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

So, yes, this is every bit as bad as everyone else is saying.

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. ( )
