Reviews

Lindsay's fifth thriller featuring Dexter Morgan (after Dexter by Design) brilliantly combines suspense and gallows humor. Dexter, a blood splatter analyst for the Miami-Dade PD, seriously considers giving up his secret life as a killer of serial killers after the birth of his first child, Lily Anne. Then Dexter's police sergeant sister, Deborah, calls him to the scene of a possible kidnapping, the bedroom of 18-year-old Samantha Aldovar, a student at a fancy private school. The quantity of fresh blood in the room, "like a large animal had exploded," suggests that the missing Samantha must already be dead, but it's Samantha's friend and classmate, Tyler Spanos, who turns up a cannibalized corpse. When it appears that one of those responsible for Tyler's horrible end will evade justice, Dexter finds it harder to turn over a new leaf. Readers will look forward to seeing the further impact of fatherhood on Lindsay's highly original protagonist in the next installment. (Sept.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Dark and demented Dexter becomes a doting daddy in Lindsay's latest (after Dexter by Design), another outstanding effort about everyone's favorite serial killer. Dexter is celebrating the birth of Lily Anne, his first child, and dealing with feeling as though he is almost human, and his need to hurt bad people having almost disappeared. Order is restored somewhat when a couple of teenage girls go missing, and Dex is drawn into a case involving murder and cannibalism. He has to help his sister Deborah with the case while dealing on the home front not only with his new daughter but also with the suspicious reappearance of his brother and fellow killer, Brian. Lindsay deftly handles Dexter's apparent transition toward becoming more human and prevents the book from being weighed down or dull. VERDICT With the Showtime series continuing to receive rave reviews, more readers than ever will be drawn to this series. And with this one they will not be disappointed.
