On the basis of Red Dragon, maybe. Many think Red Dragon was the beginning of the real serial killer thriller craze, and think it is still the best one. So, Silence rode on its coattails. And then this godawful Hannibal? Those are the only two books the guy has written since RD. Critics sometimes go easy on people they liked the first time around, and keep going easy for far too long.
