A witness. Such a simple concept - and yet for Dexter Morgan, a perfectly well-disguised serial killer, the possibility of a witness is terrifying. As an upstanding blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police, Dexter has always managed to keep the darker side of his life out of the spotlight.
An expert at finding truly bad people - murderers who've long escaped justice - Dexter has long been giving them his own special brand of attention. But now someone has seen him in the act. Dexter is being followed, manipulated, and mimicked, leading him to realise that no one likes to have a double - especially when his double's goal is to kill him.
Dexter is not one to tolerate such displeasure...in fact he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.

The pleasure of listening to Jeff Lindsay's prose, replete with dry humour and frequent alliteration, read by Lindsay himself, perfectly pouring his narration from the page
I have listened to all of the books in the Dexter series so far. Lindsay is superb in them all and, to my ear, captures the very essence of his hero. His voice has a slinky, sultry, sulky tone when reading Dexter himself (which is the majority as we view the world through his eyes), but changes for the conversational input of the other characters.
No laughter but a big, contented smile
I've seen the T.V. series and enjoyed it but this audio series is so much better. Jeff Lindsay's portrayal is superb and lifts the whole book from a decent enough detective style series into something to savour and really enjoy.
