A little disappointing, to be honest. Felt like Jeff Lindsay was phoning most of it in. The antagonist wasn't terribly interesting and it seemed that Dexter was off his game for most of the book, letting a lot of obvious hints get past him. Also, Dexter needs to start appreciating his wife beyond "gorgeous lady who cooks great meals", honestly. At least there was plenty of everyone's favorite Dexter-hating detective, Doakes, and resident lab creep Vince, to go around. Plus Deb was pretty awesome, as usual. More of a 3.5 than a 3. Hopefully Lindsay uses the next book to start an actual multi-book plotline involving Dexter (that isn't babies); at this point in the series, he really needs a major shake up in his life. ( )

This book was much better than the last Dexter book I read, which was two books ago. I just couldn't handle the writing style anymore. However, When I saw that this was up for a First Reads giveaway I couldn't resist.

I give it a middle of the road 3 stars. I still liked the first two books the best, but I feel this is getting slightly more on track. The plot is interesting, and I wasn't bored while reading it. The Bad? Rita is suuuuuuper annoying in this book. Man I couldn't stand her.

I wasn't overwhelmed or underwhelmed with this book, just whelmed. Very milquetoast. ( )

This was maybe my favorite of the Dexter books. Good, interesting plot with a lot of different angles. ( )

Enjoyable, black comedy about a serial killer who operates according to a "code" where truly vile people who have evaded justice are removed from society with extreme prejudice.
Dexter gets observed in the middle of a job and then gets stalked by this person who is seriously disturbed and feels he needs to rid society of Dexter. Along the way, this person collects a few others to boot and Dexter is really struggling to find out who the stalker is, as the stalker always seems to be a few steps ahead of him.
Dexter, the new dad and family man is definitely off his game.
Good fun. ( )

Book description
Dexter Morgan is not your average serial killer. He enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department . . . but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. Dexter is therefore not pleased to discover that someone is shadowing him, observ­ing him, and copying his methods. Dexter is not one to tol­erate displeasure . . . in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.
Haiku summary
