Publisher's Summary

Miami's best-dressed serial killer is back and on the prowl - at least he would be if he could shake off his permanent shadow.

Ever since their paths first crossed, Sergeant Doakes hasn't let Dexter Morgan out of his sight. Dexter may well be the Miami PD's blood-spatter analyst, but Sgt. Doakes has a pretty good idea of how Dex likes to spend his free time, and he's determined to catch him in the act.

Dex hasn't killed in months and is getting twitchy. To throw Doakes off his scent, he's spending more time with Rita, his girlfriend. But no matter how many cosy nights they spend in front of the TV, Doakes is still watching. Then a body turns up, horribly mutilated and barely alive. To trap the torturer, Doakes and Dexter will have to work together - if they can trust each other. It's a devil's pact, and one of them will have to be the bait....

    Story
    "One of my favourite Authors"
    If you could sum up Dearly Devoted Dexter in three words, what would they be?

    Disturbingly great story


    What other book might you compare Dearly Devoted Dexter to, and why?

    Thomas Harris - Hannibal


    What does Jeff Lindsay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I tend to rush books have them read gives me greater detail


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Amused


    Any additional comments?

    Was not, and probably still not sure about the narration. Usually its one of the important details, other being story. At first I was not sure about an non-professional actor doing the narration. But Jeff grew on me. Yes, he does not have the vocal range of a trained voice but he puts so much humour into the story I will definitely get another of the Books.

    Story
    "Second Superlative Serial-killer"

    Jeff Lindsey continues to both write and narrate this episode in the life of Dexter, the serial killer who dislikes the messiness of blood but, ironically . also works for the police in his capacity of a blood splatter analyst. The story is again told from Dexter's point of view as he tries to pursue his own chosen 'hobby' whilst assisting in the tracking of a particularly unpleasant butcher of men. It is a bit gruesome in part but told with such wit and narrated with delicious style so that the whole is a joy to hear.
    Another highly recommended listen.
