Yes, Mason Verger is the main villain in the book Hannibal- and is hunting Hannibal once after he escaped with the intention of feeding him to his pigs. He's essentially in competition with the FBI as to who can locate Lector first.
The same events happened in the book , except for knowing that Will walked in on it after the fact. It was presumed that he did this after a therapy session and jumped out a window. Though I didn't remember him being a quadriplegic- I thought he was only wheelchair bound due to loss of use of his legs.
Grissly it may be, but they're doing a masterful job of fleshing out the backstory and incorporating the material from the novels.
