Heâ€™s a charming monster . . .
A macabre hero . . .
A serial killer who only kills bad people
Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. Itâ€™s
just not easy being an ethical serial killerâ€”especially
while trying to avoid the unshakable suspicions of the
dangerous Sergeant Doakes (who believes Dexter is a
homicidal maniac . . . which, of course, he is).
In an attempt to throw Doakes off his trail, Dexter has had
to slip deep into his foolproof disguise. While not working
as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department,
he now spends nearly all his time with his cheerful
girlfriend, Rita, and her two children, sipping light beer
and slowly becoming the worldâ€™s first serial couch potato.
But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice
the Slasher? How long before his Dark Passenger forces him
to drop the charade and let his inner monster run free? In
trying times, opportunity knocks. A particularly nasty
psychopath is cutting a trail through Miamiâ€”a man whose
twisted technique leaves even Dexter speechless.
As Dexterâ€™s dark appetite is revived, his sister, Deborah (a
newly minted, tough-as-nails Miami detective) is drawn
headlong into the case. It quickly becomes clear that it
will take a monster to catch a monsterâ€”but it isnâ€™t until
his archnemesis is abducted that Dex can finally throw
himself into the search for a new plaything. Unless, of
course, his plaything finds him first . . .
With the incredible wit and freshness that drew widespread
acclaim to Darkly Dreaming Dexter, Jeff Lindsay now takes
Dexter Morgan to a new level of macabre appeal and gives us
one of the most original, colorful narrators in years.
