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

Fayth @ Starcrossed
It was a long venture to get through this book, because I have a policy where I don't watch anything before I read the book(s) of basis. I accidentally watched the first season of Dexter before I found out about the book series. So, like a good girl, I refrained from watching the second season and began Dexter. In January. See, there is a reason I have this rule: my love of suspense rivals my love of reading. Another love of mine is being in the know, for when I watch the movies/tv series/whatever based on said book. And although Dexter season 1 and Darkly Dreaming Dexter were different, the gist was basically the same. So, since I knew the gist, it was hard to focus on this book and not read another one.
Boring note aside, this book was enjoyable, once I FINALLY sucked it up and read it. Dexter's character is interesting- he's hilarious, a blood spatter analyst, and a serial killer- which makes it fun to read things from his point of view. The mystery, which wasn't such a mystery to me (although a lot of elements were different) was a darn good one. The characters were developed well. I could see them all as real people. Which is why I hate Deb, Dexter's sister. The entire book she was such a grouch. Ugh.
I am definitely looking forward to reading the next books in the series. It's the Sookie Stackhouse series all over again. by Rainy Days and Pajamas
