4.5 out of 5 rating. 2 Reviews

The "Dexter" phenomenon-in bookstores, on TV screens, and in the hearts of millions of fans worldwide-continues with his most delectable dish to date.
 
Dexter Morgan's neatly organized life as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police, devoted husband and father, and killer of only those who deserve it is turned upside down by the arrival of his new daughter, Lily Anne.  Feeling surprisingly sunny and loving, he's trying to suppress the influence of his Dark Passenger-the voice inside who guides his homicidal urges.  But Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a seventeen-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires, but cannibals.  And most disturbing,  these people have their eyes on Dexter . . . and their mouths are watering.

Read from the Book

ONE This part of the hospital seems like foreign country to me. There is no sense of the battlefield here, no surgical teams in gore-stained scrubs trading witty remarks about missing body parts, no steely-eyed administrators with their clipboards, no herds of old drunks in wheelchairs, and above all, no flocks of wide-eyed sheep huddled together in fear at what might come out of the double steel doors. There is no stench of blood, antiseptic, and terror; the smells here are kinder, homier. Even the colors are different: softer, more pastel, without the drab, battleship utilitarianism of the walls in other parts of the building. There are, in fact, none of the sights and sounds and dreadful smells I have come to associate with hospitals, none at all. There is only the crowd of moon-eyed men standing at the big window, and to my infinite surprise, I am one of them. We stand together, happily pressed up to the glass and cheerfully making space for any newcomer. White, black, brown; Latin, African-American, Asian-American, Creole--it doesn''t matter. We are all brothers. No one sneers or frowns; no one seems to care about getting an accidental nudge in the ribs now and again, and no one, wonder of all, seems to harbor any violent thoughts about any of the others. Not even me. Instead, we all cluster at the glass, looking at the miraculous commonplace in the next room. Are these human beings? Can this really be the Miami I have always lived in? Or has some strange physics experim

Editorial Reviews

Killer Acclaim for Jeff Lindsay’s “Dexter” series: “Lindsay’s original, cockeyed view of the world is alive and well. . . . [His] dark, comedic fiction is an alternate universe once removed.” — Los Angeles Times   “A fresh, inventive slice of crime fiction that turns the axis of good and evil . . . upside down. A psychological thriller in the best sense of the genre.” — Sun-Sentinel   “Like a breath of fresh air blowing across all of crime-novel conventions, there is Dexter.” — The Denver Post   “Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love.” — Entertainment Weekly   “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   “Wonderfully fresh and packed with just the right amount of grotesquerie and wry wit.” — USA Today   “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 Tim
