Waiting on Wednesday: Dexter is Delicious by Jeff Lindsay

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Product Description

America’s most-read, most-watched, and most­ beloved serial killer—Dexter Morgan—is back. After selling more than one million copies and inspiring the wildly popular #1 Showtime series and top-rated crime drama on pay-cable television, New York Times bestselling author Jeff Lindsay returns with his most hilarious, macabre, and purely entertaining novel yet.

Dexter Morgan has always lived a happy homicidal life. He keeps his dark urges in check by adhering to one stead­fast rule . . . he only kills very bad people. But now Dexter is experiencing some major life changes—don’t we all?—and they’re mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a seventeen-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals. And, most disturbing . . . these people have decided they would really like to eat Dexter.

Jeff Lindsay’s bestselling, dark, ironic, and oftentimes laugh-out-loud hilarious novels about the lovable serial killer with no soul (but a redeeming desire to kill only people who deserve it) have gained a legion of fans and assumed a place in our cul­ture.

I knew it had to happen sooner or later, Dexter vs. vampires. I bet Dexter wins.


  1. This book sounds really dark but funny too. I never knew the TV series was based on a series of books. I love the TV show so I'm sure I'll love the books. Great pick!

  2. The TV show is sooooo good, and I own the first 3 books in a bind up, but I haven't read them yet! I need to get around to that because this looks great!

    Mine's here if you're interested. :)

  3. I think I'm in the minority when I say I haven't read or watched. The series is very popular so it must be good :)

  4. I haven't read any of these books OR watched the series...but now I'm curious.

    Here's mine:

  5. Ooh I want in on this now! I've heard great things about the show and books. Great pick. Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

  6. I hope he makes it out of this in one piece! Great pick! My Wow is here.

  7. I have the first three books of this series on my TBR shelf, but I haven't read them yet. Someday, someday.....

  8. We LOVE the Dexter show, and the books are on my TBR list for sure! I'll have to add this one, too! Thanks! :-)
