Exclusive: Thomas Harris Shares the Cover and Sneak Peek of His Upcoming Thriller

In his first book in 13 years, The Silence of the Lambs author Thomas Harris will be back in U.S. bookstores on May 21 with his much anticipated thriller, Cari Mora. Harris is exclusively revealing the title, cover, and sneak peek of his new standalone book with Goodreads.

Be sure to add this highly anticipated book to your Want to Read shelf.

The summary of Cari Mora

From the creator of Hannibal Lecter and The Silence of the Lambs comes a story of evil, greed, and the consequences of dark obsession.

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. 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. 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.

Sneak peek from Cari Mora

Hans-Peter Schneider’s boat slid very slowly past the great house on Biscayne Bay, water gurgling along the black hull.

Through his binoculars Hans-Peter watched Cari Mora, twenty-five, in her pajama pants and tank top as she stretched on the terrace in the early morning light.

“My goodness,” he said. Hans-Peter’s canine teeth are rather long and they have silver in them that shows when he smiles.

Hans-Peter is tall and pale, totally hairless. Lacking lashes, his eyelids touched the glass of his binoculars, making smudges. He wiped the eyepieces with a linen handkerchief.

The house-agent Felix stood behind him on the boat.

“That’s her. The caretaker,” Felix said.

>Cari Mora will be available in the U.S. on May 21, 2019 (and elsewhere also in May). Don’t forget to add it to your Want to Read shelf! While you wait to get your hands on the new book, you can also re-read Harris' most popular books...

4 Books to Help You Build New Habits (Like Reading More Books This Year!)

Holly Black Explains Our Fascination with Faeries

Holly Black is one of the YA world's premier experts on faeries (she also has the pointy ears to prove it). Her enchanting books include The Modern Faerie Tales, The Curse Workers, and most recently The Folk of the Air series (the first installment was recently nominated in the 2018 Goodreads Choice Awards). Here Black discusses why faeries are so alluring to us mere mortals and answers all our questions about her upcoming book, The Wicked King.

Faeries might look like us, but they are not us. Unlike vampires, who were people, or werewolves, who still are (at least most of the time), faeries are completely other. They have their own taboos and their own moral systems.

They laugh at funerals and cry at weddings. They cannot lie. They live eternal lives. If they are like anything, they are like the weather. Sometimes they are warm breezes and sometimes they are lightning storms. And there's not much mortals can do but get out of their way.

I got my idea of what faeries were primarily from a book called Faeries, illustrated by Brian Froud and Alan Lee. It was full of folklore, sketches, and paintings that imagined faeries as alternatively (and sometimes simultaneously) horrifying and majestic. From that book I found my way to lots more folklore and became utterly fascinated with these capricious and dangerous beings.

They are like the natural world in another way, in that an encounter with a solitary faerie creature reveals that hidden around us is an entire ecosystem. The helpful hob who does errands in exchange for a crust of bread and a bowl of cream suggests there's a whole troop of faerie lords and ladies as well as trolls and goblins, redcaps and merfolk, nixies and pixies and sprites.

And they do not live in a land far away, but instead inhabit our hidden, liminal spaces. Just as nature can take back man-made buildings with surprising swiftness, hungrily covering mansions with ivy and moss, so too do faeries seem to hover at the edges of our industrial world, waiting for their chance to fit themselves into more spaces.

Our world feels bigger and stranger with that possibility. But there's something else that draws me to faerie stories: the idea of ruinous beauty. Like faerie fruit—one glorious taste of which will render all other food ashes in your mouth—one taste of faerie can leave mortals looking for a way back in for the rest of their days, pining for the loss of that magic. Their world is so good that it's terrible, and that's the very sort of story I like best.


Goodreads: What can fans expect from The Wicked King?

Holly Black: If The Cruel Prince asks questions around what Jude would do to get power, The Wicked King asks what she's willing to do to hold onto it. Plus, there are two marriages, murder, and merfolk!

GR: Let's talk about Jude and Cardan. Their dynamic has been tumultuous (to say the least!) since the beginning. In what ways has it shifted in the sequel?

HB: Well, The Wicked King begins with Cardan being the High King of Elfhame, but also under Jude's control. He's furious, having been tricked into that position. But though they are at odds with one another, the larger world of truces, alliances, and potential usurpers is circling them, searching for weaknesses. Either they will find a way to put their differences aside or they stand to lose everything—not only the throne of Elfhame, but also their lives.

GR: Jude is a mortal human living among the faeries. Despite their mistreatment of her, she chooses to do this. What continues to draw her to this world?

HB: Jude is human, but she grew up in the faerie realm, having been raised by the murderer of her parents—the Grand General of Elfhame, Madoc. And having grown up here, she considers it to be her home. It's what she knows best and the world she feels as though she fits into now. But she's also come to love magic, and a world without it seems to be a very dull place to her.

GR: On that note, what continues to draw Prince Cardan to Jude?

HB: I think Cardan started out envious of Jude. Madoc loved her, even though she wasn't his biological daughter and she wasn't a faerie, while his parents never cared much for him. And she was better than he was with the sword and better at school, in large part because she tried really, really hard and he barely bothered to try at all.

As a faerie prince, though, a mortal wasn't supposed to be better than he was, so he both resented her and was fascinated by her. The more he paid attention, the more he found her compelling—particularly her unwillingness to back down and her ability to give as good as she got. Before he knew it, he was drawn to her and horrified at himself for feeling that way.

GR: What books do you recommend for faerie fans?


A historical fantasy that features a compelling goblin king and the clever heroine who must outwit him. Lush and lovely, with a fabulous sequel!


The first book in an ongoing mystery series about a changeling who has been trying to straddle a life in the modern-day human world with one in the faerie world. This is an adult book, but I think that teen readers would love this series, too.


In this retelling of Cinderella, in which things do not go as we might think, the protagonist is drawn toward the faerie world, partially due to a love of magic and stories and partially because she associates it with her lost mother. But if she goes to the faerie world, she will be leaving behind the Huntress, with whom she has a vital bond of a different kind.


An Enchantment of Ravens

by Margaret Rogerson

The story of a mortal swept away into the faerie world by a prince of the realm, who's furious with her for painting him with the mortal weakness of sorrow in his face. This is a road trip adventure (though mostly on foot) with two unlikely companions who learn about one another on the way.


The Perilous Gard

by Elizabeth Marie Pope

A historical fantasy about a brave young girl who discovers a passage into a cold and strange faerie world underground. One of the best faerie queens I've ever read.


Lady Midnight

by Cassandra Clare

After exploring other aspects of the Shadowhunter world in The Dark Artifices, we learn much more about faeries, and over the course of the series even visit the extremely decadent Unseelie Court. Veers between humor and horror in the best possible way.


Seven Black Diamonds

by Melissa Marr

Melissa's return to the faerie realm is set in an alternate near future, where a grieving faerie queen wishes to wipe out humanity. Many points of view allow us to explore the world and to be especially surprised when not all is as it seems.


Jack, the Giant-Killer

by Charles de Lint

Another non-YA book, although The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint is YA. I come back to this again and again and am delighted every time. After getting dumped, our heroine drinks too much and winds up seeing into a world that ought to have been hidden from her. She and her best friend wind up drawn into a conflict in the faerie realm, one that will change their lives forever.


Welcome to Bordertown

edited by Ellen Kushner and Holly Black

OK, I am cheating a little, since I had something to do with this, but the original shared-world anthology series, edited by Terri Windling, was one I read when I was a teenager. This is a collection of stories by the original writers and by new writers who were influenced by the books.

Пол Каланити Когда дыхание растворяется в воздухе. Иногда судьбе все равно, что ты врач When Breath Becomes Air
Когда дыхание растворяется в воздухе. Иногда судьбе все равно, что ты врач
Пол Каланити - талантливый врач-нейрохирург, и он с таким же успехом мог бы стать талантливым писателем. Вы держите в руках его единственную книгу. Более десяти лет он учился на нейрохирурга и всего полтора года отделяли его от того, чтобы стать профессором. Он уже получал хорошие предложения работы, у него была молодая жена и совсем чуть-чуть оставалось до того, как они наконец-то начнут настоящую жизнь, которую столько лет откладывали на потом. Полу было всего 36 лет, когда смерть, с которой он боролся в операционной, постучалась к нему самому. Диагноз – рак легких, четвертая стадия – вмиг перечеркнула всего его планы. Кто, как не сам врач, лучше всего понимает, что ждет больного с таким диагнозом? Пол не опустил руки, он начал жить! Он много времени проводил с семьей, они с женой родили прекрасную дочку Кэди, реализовалась мечта всей его жизни – он начал писать книгу, и он стал профессором нейрохирургии. У ВАС В РУКАХ КНИГА ВЕЛИКОГО ПИСАТЕЛЯ, УСПЕВШЕГО НАПИСАТЬ ВСЕГО ОДНУ КНИГУ. ЭТУ КНИГУ!...

Как все начиналось
История создания книги "Куриный бульон" вдохновляет не меньше, чем маленькие истории, из которых она состоит.
Джек Кэнфилд и Марк Хансен, оба популярные мотивационные спикеры, любили свои выступления "приправить" парочкой вдохновляющих историй. После тренингов многие обращались к ним: "А где можно найти ту историю про девочку-скаута? Я бы купил книгу ее сыну". "А та история про парня и щенка - ее можно где-то прочитать?".
В течение года Кэнфилд и Хансен записывали истории, которые пережили сами или услышали от знакомых, и когда их набралось 101 - разослали по издательствам. Они получили 144 отказа.
Тогда Джек и Марк решили найти покупателей еще до публикации книги, в надежде переубедить издателей. Они рассказывали о ней своим знакомым и слушателям тренингов, и всех, кто был заинтересован, просила написать расписку о покупке будущей книги. Когда таких расписок набралось более 20 000, Джек и Марк снова обратились к издателям.
Книгу напечатали, и все, кто давал обещание, купили ее. А дальше... продажи встали. Джек и Марк не хотели сдаваться. У них была цель - продать 1, 5 миллиона за 1,5 года.
Тогда они придумали "Правило пяти": ежедневно совершать по пять активных шагов по продвижению и продаже книги. С этого момента Кэнфилд и Хансен каждый день рассылали по 5 экземпляров журналистам, голливудским звездам, делали по 5 звонков руководителям компаний с предложением подарить книги сотрудникам. В итоге через 1,5 года было продано 1.3 миллиона экземпляров.
Издатель попросил написать продолжение.
Со временем книга, которую отвергли 144 издательства, стала одним из самых успешных проектов в истории книгоиздания....

Филип Рив Адские конструкции. Книга 3
Адские конструкции. Книга 3
В новой редакции — третий роман эпопеи «Хроники хищных городов». Итак, со времени действия «Золота хищников» прошло шестнадцать лет (а «Смертных машин» — восемнадцать). На все это время мир, охваченный войной между Лигой противников движения и движущимися городами, позабыл об Анкоридже, затерянном где-то на берегах Мертвого континента. Но выйдет из войны победителем только тот, кто расшифрует записи таинственной Жестяной Книги, хранящейся в архиве этого города-призрака… Возможно, самая ожидаемая премьера 2018 года — это экранизация «Смертных машин», выходящая на экраны в декабре 2018 года под названием «Хроники хищных городов». Исполнительным продюсером картины и автором сценария выступает Питер Джексон, постановщиком — Кристиан Риверс (мастер спецэффектов, работавший с Джексоном на съемках «Властелина колец», «Хоббита» и «Кинг-Конга»), в ролях Стивен Лэнг из «Аватара» и Хью Уивинг («Матрица», «Властелин колец»)....

Кадзуо Исигуро Остаток дня The Remains of the Day
Остаток дня
Урожденный японец, выпускник литературного курса Малькольма Брэдбери, написавший самый английский роман конца XХ века!
Дворецкий Стивенс, без страха и упрека служивший лорду Дарлингтону, рассказывает о том, как у него развивалось чувство долга и умение ставить нужных людей на нужное место, демонстрируя поистине самурайскую замкнутость в рамках своего кодекса служения.
В 1989 г. за "Остаток дня" Исигуро единогласно получил Букера (и это было, пожалуй, единственное решение Букеровского комитета за всю историю премии, ни у кого не вызвавшее протеста). Одноименная экранизация Джеймса Айвори с Энтони Хопкинсом в главной роли пользовалась большим успехом. A Борис Акунин написал своего рода ремейк "Остатка дня" - роман "Коронация"....

Ли Куан Ю Из третьего мира - в первый. История Сингапура 1965-2000 From Third World to First: The Singapore Story: 1965-200
Из третьего мира - в первый. История Сингапура 1965-2000
О чем эта книга
Когда крохотный Сингапур в 1965 году получил независимость, никто не верил, что ему удастся выжить. Однако он не просто выжил, а превратился в процветающую столицу Азиатского региона с лучшим в мире аэропортом, крупнейшей авиалинией, ключевым торговым портом, заняв четвертое место в мире по уровню дохода на душу населения.
Об этом чуде в своих мемуарах рассказывает бывший премьер-министр Сингапура Ли Куан Ю. Он оживляет перед читателями историю, анализирует основные стратегические решения современности, пишет о том, как из года в год направлял сложные отношения США, Китая и Тайваня, служа для руководителей этих государств и доверенным лицом, и вестником, и экспертом.

Для кого эта книга
Книга будет интересна всем, кто интересуется экономикой и политикой, психологией отношений. А также для тех, кто не верит, что отсталое государство может быстро стать передовым.

Почему мы решили издать эту книгу
"Из третьего мира - в первый" написана одним из самых ярких политиков второй половины двадцатого столетия. Этот человек за короткое время превратил крошечный город-остров без природных ресурсов в предмет восхищения первых лиц многих мировых держав. Одни его хвалили, другие ругали, но и те и другие прислушивались к его словам и считались с ним.
Мы хотим, чтобы российский читатель получил возможность составить собственное мнение об этом неординарном человеке, его опыте управления страной и результатах.

Фишки книги
Необыкновенная простота, ясность, детальность и откровенность изложения.

Об авторе
Ли Куан Ю - бывший премьер-министр республики Сингапур, родился в Сингапуре 16 сентября 1923 года в семье китайских иммигрантов второго поколения. Он изучал право в Кембридже. В 1954 году основал Партию народного действия, которая пять лет спустя победила на выборах. В 1959 году тридцатипятилетний Ли стал первым в истории премьер-министром Сингапура, в 1990 году он ушел с этого поста, сохранив за собой звание старшего министра кабинета....

Олег Навальный Три с половиной. С арестантским уважением и братским теплом
Три с половиной. С арестантским уважением и братским теплом
В декабре 2014 года братья Олег и Алексей Навальные были осуждены по "делу "Ив Роше". Алексей получил 3 1/2 года условно, Олег - 3 1/2 года колонии. Европейский суд по правам человека признал приговор произвольным и необоснованным, но Олег отсидел весь срок, 1278 дней. В этой книге, большая часть которой была написана в колонии, он изложил все, что произошло с ним за это время. И снабдил рассказ подробнейшими схемами и иллюстрациями. Из нее можно узнать, чем "красная" зона отличается от "черной", зачем в тюрьме нужны простыни и полотенца, что такое СУС, БУР и АУЕ, куда прятать сим-карту при обыске и почему Чубакка стал осужденным. Но главное - это книга о том, как не теряться даже в самых диких, страшных и нелепых обстоятельствах. ЦИТАТА "Примерно четыре миллиарда раз я рассказал эту историю везде, где только можно, но если вы не слышали, то вот мой рецепт убийства времени: Шаг 1. Составьте себе расписание на день. Шаг 2. Заполните его всякими активностями: спорт, чтение, обучение, творчество и т.д. Желательно, чтобы один и тот же набор активностей не повторялся каждый день. Шаг 3. Сделайте расписание нереализуемым. Получается, что весь день ты что-то делаешь по намеченному плану, но как ни стараешься - успеть не можешь. Значит, времени не хватает катастрофически. То есть оно максимально эффективно убито. Ха! Шах и мат, время"....
