Darkly Dreaming Dexter
A NovelBook - 2006
Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep's clothing. He's handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He's a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened-of himself or some other fiend.
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
A loveable serial killer. No, seriously. Truly enter the mind of a monster not unlike the average person...except that he's a serial killer, of course.
Witty and attractive, blood-spatter scientist Dexter Morgan leads a double life as a serial killer.Due to a heavy influence from his foster-father, a police officer, however, he only kills those deserving of his unique brand of justice. When his vice-cop sister investigates a series of prostitute centered killings, Dexter decides to lend a hand - if mainly because of his fascination with the killer, whose style closely resembles his own.
