Product Description

Review

Killer Acclaim for Jeff Lindsay’s “Dexter” series:

“Lindsay’s original, cockeyed view of the world is alive and well. . . . [His] dark, comedic fiction is an alternate universe once removed.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“A fresh, inventive slice of crime fiction that turns the axis of good and evil . . . upside down. A psychological thriller in the best sense of the genre.” —Sun-Sentinel
 
“Like a breath of fresh air blowing across all of crime-novel conventions, there is Dexter.” —The Denver Post
 
“Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“With chills like this, you can skip the air-conditioning.” —Time
 
“Just when you think (hope?) that the tired and rarely credible device of the serial killer next door has hit a wall, along comes a writer like Jeff Lindsay to prove you wrong. . . . So enjoyable.” —Chicago Tribune
 
“Dexter’s captivating, first-person account is a genuinely exciting read.” —Time Out New York
 
“Wonderfully fresh and packed with just the right amount of grotesquerie and wry wit.” —USA Today
 
“The real appeal of this macabre tour de force is Dexter’s sardonic voice, so snappy and smart, and yet so full of self-loathing that we hate ourselves for laughing.” —The New York Times
 
“Dexter is a fascinating character, though he’s not the kind of guy you’d like to invite to dinner.” —Chicago Sun-Times
 
“Mordantly funny.” —New York Post
 
“Dexter . . . is tremendously likeable, his hobby not withstanding.” —St. Petersburg Times
 
“Lindsay gets high marks for originality, atmosphere, vibrant action scenes and having the brass to write this in the first place.” —Tulsa World

Another success in the "Dexter" series! Though not as spectacular as "Dexter by Design: A Novel" or "Darkly Dreaming Dexter," I would rank this book third in the series. Interesting new character developments for Dexter and Deborah following the amazing events in "Dexter By Design," that clean up those loose threads that left us hanging at the end of the last book, while also propelling the characters forward and bringing new life - literally - to the D siblings.

Twisted and bizarre killers like we always expect from a "Dexter" book, but also some pretty twisted and bizarre victims, that will certainly raise your eyebrows, if not turn your stomach, but will certainly keep you reading.

And a question left over from "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" decides it was time we had an answer...

By Jessica Strider TOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 10 2011
Format: Hardcover
Pros: lyrical writing, introspective, darkly fun

Cons: predictable

Dexter is astonished that upon the birth of his daughter his homicidal instincts desert him for more... human... ones. Suddenly he wants to be Dex-Daddy, hang up his knives and steer Astor and Cody away from the dark path.

But life intrudes in the form of his sister and a possible kidnapping/murder case involving cannibals. And a figure from his past starts to become cozy with his family, leaving Dexter disoriented.

This is a lighthearted novel that examines the darker side of life. Like the others in the series, it's light on the gore and heavy on the lyrical writing. Unlike the previous books, Dexter develops actual feelings. It's fun watching him reevaluate life and try to understand emotions he's only faked before.

While the story gets predictable towards the end there were some good twists I didn't see coming, like an unexpected request by Deborah.

One of the best of the series.

I would rank this book first in the series. I started it on a Saturday morning and finished it about 20 hours later. Literally unable to put it down. Be warned.
I did love all the other books too, but this one is just off the charts as far as I'm concerned.

It has a little less of the duct tape/plastic bag action than some of the previous novels, but it's more complex IMO. The baby changes a lot of things in Dexter's life. Also, the criminals in this installment are even more spectacular than usual.

A typical Dexter novel. Lots of suspense and great descriptions. Hope Mr Lindsay keeps writing the novels now that the TV series is gone. A very enjoyable read
