Dearly Devoted Dexter

Dearly Devoted Dexter (Dexter, #2)Dearly Devoted Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series has me, hook, line and sinker. What's not to love? Witty dialogue (or monologue, in some cases), plots that keep me guessing and damn.good writing. These books are dark and funny, picking apart the best and worst things that make us human.

Series: Dexter Book 2

But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice the Slasher? How long before his Dark Passenger forces him to drop the charade of family life and let his inner monster run free?
In trying times, opportunity knocks. A particularly nasty psychopath is cutting a trail through Miami-a man who "slices and dices and leaves vegetables behind." Dexter's dark appetite is revived, but it's not until his nemesis, Sergeant Doakes, is abducted that Dex can finally throw himself headlong into the search for a new plaything. Unless, of course, his plaything finds...
