Summary

Everything's changing for our friendly neighbourhood serial killer. As if getting married wasn't enough to complete his nice-guy persona, Dexter is now the proud father of a baby girl. And, disconcertingly, he actually seems to care.

But even if fatherhood is distracting Dexter from his midnight excursions to rid Miami of a few more lowlifes, there's no let-up at work. Two young girls are missing - and it's not long before one of the bodies turns up partially eaten. But as Dexter and Miami PD's finest investigate, Dexter can't shake the feeling that somebody's watching him....

Narrated by the author.

brilliantly written, brilliantly read

Read by the author himself, you can really hear the different charchters in his voice. Of course the overall Dexter monologue is perfectly done. Highly recommended!

Launching Lovely Lilianne

Dexter is changing. He's married now with two step children and a new baby of his own. And he takes his family responsibility very seriously. So seriously, in fact, he is deliberately rejecting the call of his Dark Passenger.
But life is funny, isn't it? It has a way of turning things around: so,, in pursuit of the quiet life, Dexter finds himself contending with not just nappies and car runs, but also missing girls, pseudo vampires and murderous cannibals as well as his ever angry sister and the sudden reappearance of an undesirable uncle for his children. Poor Dexter - it's never easy when he tries to be good.

Of all of the stories so far, I found this one the least (I hope!) believable. But the sheer pleasure of seeing the world from the Dexter perspective, the sardonic humour and inspired writing ( no hairs standing up on the back of the neck here; instead there is the "slow creep of uneasy toes along my spine") all voiced by the author himself, is a delight too good to miss.
