Description
The macabre, witty New York Times bestselling series (and inspiration for the #1 Showtime series, Dexter) continues as our darkly lovable killer matches wits with a sadistic artiste—who is creating bizarre murder tableaux of his own all over Miami.
After his surprisingly glorious honeymoon in Paris, life is almost normal for Dexter Morgan. Married life seems to agree with him: he’s devoted to his bride, his stomach is full, and his homicidal hobbies are nicely under control. But old habits die hard—and Dexter’s work as a blood spatter analyst never fails to offer new temptations that appeal to his offbeat sense of justice…and his Dark Passenger still waits to hunt with him in the moonlight.
The discovery of a corpse (artfully displayed as a sunbather relaxing on a Miami beach chair) naturally piques Dexter’s curiosity and Miami’s finest realize they’ve got a terrifying new serial killer on the loose. And Dexter, of course, is back in business.

      • source: Booklist
      • content: "Dexter is a brilliant creation, a monster who walks like a man, a homicidal maniac who only kills people who deserve it, a simulacrum of a human being who has had to learn how to fake his way through the intricacies of human interaction. There is a popular television series about the character, but a TV show can't capture the nuances of Lindsay's writing, the subtleties of Dexter's delightfully deranged mind...Like a lightly comic version of Hannibal Lecter, Dexter is a genuinely memorable, disturbingly compelling antihero."

        June 29, 2009
        Lindsay doesn't always maintain the balance between farce and something more serious in his fourth thriller to feature Dexter Morgan (after Dexter in the Dark
        ). As fans of the hit Showtime TV series know, Dexter is a blood-splatter analyst for the Miami PD as well as a serial killer who targets killers who've evaded justice. When two eviscerated corpses turn up on a beach, Dexter investigates, as does his sister, Deborah, a sergeant with his department, who suffers serious injury after she's stabbed by a suspect, Alex Doncevic. Convinced Deborah's assailant is the person also responsible for the bodies on the beach, Dexter eliminates Doncevic, only to find that he's taken an innocent life. To Dexter's further dismay, someone begins posting videos of Doncevic's murder on YouTube. While the darkly witty Lindsay deserves credit for continuing to make imaginative use of his original concept, a contrived resolution disappoints.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Those acquainted with Showtime's hit series "Dexter," about the Miami Police blood spatter analyst by day, vigilante serial killer by night, will be thrilled by Lindsay's latest installment. Upon returning from his honeymoon in Paris, Dexter's iconic character continues to struggle with his "Dark Passenger," the driving force behind his bloody deeds. Landrum excels in depicting Dexter's macabre persona--every utterance is dripping with impeccable irony and self-ridicule. His tone as Dexter is menacing, not flat, although Dexter describes himself as having no soul. Lindsay's sharp wit and character repartee are also suited to Landrum's measured pace and modulated intensity. As the suspense of Dexter's latest case builds and he faces a shock from his personal demon, even more horrors await at home. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
