An anthropomorphic killer who believes he is slowly transforming into the Red Dragon of The Apocalypse as depicted in a William Blake painting takes advice from Hannibal Lecter who is sending coded messages from his cell in a mental institution. What follows is an FBI manhunt for one of the most unique characters ever conceived for literature. The book combines horror with theology, philosophy and art to produce a truly intelligent read.
