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, his stomach is full, and his homicidal hobbies are nicely under control.

Review quote

Wonderfully fresh and packed with just the right amount of grotesquerie and wry wit. USA Today Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love. Entertainment Weekly An entertaining, funny series. . . . In his own way, Dexter is trying to make the world a better place. Sun-Sentinel 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. The New York Times Like a breath of fresh air blowing across all of crime-novel conventions, there is Dexter. The Denver Post With chills like this, you can skip the air-conditioning. Time Just when you think (hope?) that the tired and rarely credible device of the serial killer next door has hit a wall, along comes a writer like Jeff Lindsay to prove you wrong. . . . So enjoyable. Chicago Tribune Dexter s captivating, first-person account is a genuinely exciting read. Time Out New York Dexter is a fascinating character, though he s not the kind of guy you d like to invite to dinner. Chicago Sun-Times Mordantly funny. New York Post A unique hero. Mystery Scene In creating a singularly unique killer, Lindsay also manages to create a few sleepless nights for the reader. The Anniston Star Dexter . . . is tremendously likeable, his hobby not withstanding. St. Petersburg Times Lindsay gets high marks for originality, atmosphere, vibrant action scenes and having the brass to write this in the first place. Tulsa World Still one of the genre s uniquely delicious personalities, and Lindsay keeps the blood flowing nicely. Winnipeg Free Press "show more
