In this acclaimed follow-up to the bestselling novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter, we pick up with Dexter Morgan when he’s under considerable pressure. It’s not easy being an ethical serial killer—but he’s doing his best to keep up the disguise, spending time with his girlfriend and her kids, slowly becoming the world’s first serial killer couch potato. Then a particularly nasty psychopath starts cutting a trail through Miami and killer whose twisted techniques leave even Dexter speechless. When his sister Deborah, a tough-as-nails cop, is drawn into the case, it becomes clear that Dexter will have to do something about it. Unless, of course, the killer finds him first . . .

Praise For…

The Miami Herald

The New York Times Book Review
“One of the most likable vigilante serial killers in recent thriller literature.”
The New Yorker

“In creating a singularly unique killer, Lindsay also manages to create a few sleepless nights for the reader.”
The Anniston Star
