Book Review: Dexter by Design: A Novel by Jeff Lindsay (163)







ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT




Product 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.

I read this book cover to cover in about three hours. I just couldn't put it down. This is the equivalent of eating potato chips, you have to finish the whole thing in one sitting. Dexter is just such a strange character that you can't help but really like. Although parts of this book are quite graphic, it is not all in your face blood and gore. I think it would probably be best to read this in the series to get the whole back ground of the characters since each story builds on each other.

  1. I'd read the first Dexter book before they even made it a show. I am glad to hear that the books are still quick-paced and 'unputdownable'.
