I did, however, feel pretty good that I actually finished it. She reads people very well and is quick to make an accurate judgement, as in with Frederick Chilton, the prison warden.
But when Hopkins is pitched sitters like "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti," plus fantastically revolting slurpeveryone else takes a back seat.

When Miggs is disrespectful to Starling he rasps, "I can smell your cunt," as she passes his cell and, later, flicks his ejaculate at her Letter talks him into committing suicide by swallowing his own tongue.
Having many solved cases under her belt, she still makes it a point to appear a powerful, strong woman. Thereafter, their relationship becomes a fascinating back-and-forth duel of teasing, trepidation and mutual need.
Bella is very sick and on the verge of an inevitable death at his home. Plus, of course, he develops deep feelings for Clarice. I, myself, would have called for backup. I believed that she was a very strong woman and was very careful to appear that way to others.
From disobeying direct orders to pursuing a serial killer in his own dungeon of a basement, Clarice is finally satisfied with herself and could care what someone else thought.
The intrigue of Gumb with moths is particularly worth noting, since there is very little evidence of prior criminals being documented as having used this sort of post mortem decoration, yet the logic of the idea is impeccable.
