Dexter by Design: A Novelby Jeff Lindsay
Synopses & Reviews
"Hilarious black humor." —USA TODAY
"Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love." —Entertainment Weekly
Raves for Jeff Lindsay's Dexter by Design
“The best of Dexter’s four adventures to date, the trademark mixture of amusement and horror complemented by a genuinely suspenseful plot.” —Kirkus (starred review)
“Dexter is a brilliant creation, a monster who walks like a man, a homicidal maniac who only kills people who deserve it, a simulacrum of a human being who has had to learn how to fake his way through the intricacies of human interaction. There is a popular television series about the character, but a TV show can’t capture the nuances of Lindsay’s writing, the subtleties of Dexter’s delightfully deranged mind…Like a lightly comic version of Hannibal Lecter, Dexter is a genuinely memorable, disturbingly compelling antihero.” —Booklist

The Dexter series--bestselling books, acclaimed TV show, worldwide phenomenon--continues with Dexter's deadliest caseyet.
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, hisstomach 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 offbeatsense of justice. Not to mention that 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 inbusiness.
