Chapter 8 Summary

Lecter asks to use the phone after Graham leaves. Lecter has the right to call his lawyer whenever he wants to; therefore, he is allowed the phone. Instead of calling his lawyer, Lecter calls Dr. Bloom's office and charms a graduate assistant into giving him Graham's address and phone number. Lecter has no plans for this information at the moment, but having it makes him happy.
