Description

Dexter Morgan is back. 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 seem 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 offbeat sense of justice...and his Dark Passenger still waits to hunt with him in the moonlight. Luckily for Dex, there's someone out there with particularly twisted tastes. Dexter may have never been a big fan of art - but the discovery of a corpse (artfully displayed as a sunbather relaxing on a beach chair) naturally piques his curiosity. Miami's finest soon realize they've got a terrifying new serial killer on the loose. And Dexter, of course, is back in business. From the most original voice in crime fiction, DEXTER BY DESIGN is an enthralling, macabre and gruesomely entertaining thriller.

Review quote

'A clever, sardonic, constantly surprising novel that reveals Dexter to be much better company than Hannibal Lecter. The incredibly gory climax is both horrifying and hilarious - a very difficult trick to pull off. If only all thrillers could be this good.' EVENING STANDARD 'Another very successful encounter with the wickedly entertaining Dexter... there are genuinely funny situations, very clever plots and many excellent one-liners. Dexter has a way of getting under your skin and making you like him.' -- Matthew Lewin GUARDIAN 'Dexter - still good guy, still homicidal maniac, still genius. Join the fan club.' DAILY RECORD 'Lindsay's mesmerising crime creation will take you through terror and leave you shaking, but it's a roller-coaster read. Dexter may be a psychopath, but his ironic streak will definitely leave you begging for the next in the series.' NEWS LETTER (N Ireland) 'Dexter by Design is a dark, delicious, dastardly and a delight from start to finish. A bloody masterpiece.' COVENTRY TELEGRAPH
