Darkly Dreaming Dexter: A Novel by Jeffry Lindsay

Thursday, Jan 28, 2010

Darkly Dreaming Dexter is the first of a series by Jeffry Lindsay. Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. His foster father Harry was in the police force, and recognized Dexter's dark side from an early age. Harry taught Dexter to live by a code that would keep his inner monster hidden from others, only turning it loose for the good of humankind. Dexter learned to only let his Dark Passenger satisfy its need for killing by letting it play with those who deserved to die; those who harmed and killed the innocent. Helping the law catch bad guys by day as a Blood Spatter Analyst, and periodically ridding society of hard-to-catch bad guys by night, Dexter exists as a very special sort of good guy, and the reader gets to know him well as he shares his humorous thoughts and observations throughout. Recommended for those who enjoy a bit of blood-spattered humor.
