Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay
Dexter Morgan walks a fine line between what's right and what's primal. He appears to be a mile mannered blood spatter anaylst. He blends because that's what his dearly-departed former cop father, Harry, taught him to be when he was young. But both Dexter and Harry knew what Dexter was: a serial killer. Dexter channels his tendencies (aka "the Dark Passenger") and only uses them to murder crminals of the lowest caliber. But, then a slasher begins to challenge Dexter's expertise. As the case starts to hit closer and closer to home, Dexter feels, for the first time, that he might lose his control, his cover, before the case is through.
Told in the same style as the famous HBO TV show, this book is bloody, speculative and suspenseful until the end. The details of Dexter's job are crisp and vivid. Lindsay's Dexter quickly becomes an endearing character with a heart of gold and the mind of a serial killer.
This is the first in the Dexter Morgan series and is available from the library in print, ebook and as a Playaway. Stop into Adult Services to find more like it!
