The Basis for a New Showtime(R) Original Series Starring Michael C. Hall

(Sundays at 10pm ET/PT - starts Sunday, October 1, 2006 at 10pm ET/PT)

Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep's clothing. He's handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He's a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened-of himself or some other fiend.

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

Hiding a secret life as an assassin while working as a murder analyst for the Miami police, Dexter Morgan is intrigued by the work of a new serial killer whose style mimics his own and who Morgan realizes is inviting him into a deadly competition. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.

This book is Awesome. By far on of the best mystery books ive ever read. It gets gruesome and goes deep into the details on some gory messes but still on my top list. this is not a book for the weak stomaches.

Darkly Dreaming Dexter is a delightfully twisted mystery. It is well written with well-rounded characters and a protagonist that you just don't want to like, but you can't help but admire him. This is not a book for the squeamish. I highly recommend it.
