, the sequel to Silence of the Lambs
. Verger is the heir
to a meat-packing fortune

His face is gone, and he is almost completely paralyzed from the neck down, but don't feel too sorry for him; he had to get therapy because it was one of the conditions when he bought his way out of jail time for pedophelia and torture, two passions that were not squelched by Lecter's treatment.
