Review quote

Killer Acclaim for Jeff Lindsay's DEXTER Novels: "It's like very little else you've read. Imagine if Hannibal Lecter starred in "CSI: Miami", and you're halfway there." --"Time ""Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love." --"Entertainment Weekly ""The real appeal of this macabre tour-de-force is Dexter's sardonic voice, so snappy and smart, and yet so full of self-loathing that we hate ourselves for laughing." --"New York Times" " . . . fascinating, entertaining, and brilliant. Let Jeff Lindsay introduce you to the serial killer next door--Dexter (and his Dark Passenger) are the freshest, most terrifying creations you are ever likely to meet . . . and live to tell about." --Robert Crais, "New York Times" bestselling author "Totally captivating . . . totally original. The characters are beautifully drawn, particularly Dexter, who is tremendously likable, his hobby notwithstanding." --"St. Petersburg Times "show more
