The Silence of the Lambs is a well-researched novel. Author Thomas Harris introduces the reader to many forensics and psychological terms, as well as law enforcement jargon. The jargon is perhaps the most interesting and evocative of the terms used throughout the novel. From Harris, the reader learns that a floater is police slang for a dead body found in a body of water.
