    The Hellfire Club by Peter Straub (Bookmarque)
    Bookmarque: In every way a better book than any Dexter novel. Excellent villain and a more compelling story. This man can write.

I didn't like this as much as the first one. I am a little intrigued by the suggestion that Cody and Astor are going to be little mini-Dexters with homicidal tendencies, so I'll be looking forward to seeing how that develops in later books. Otherwise, I don't have much to say about this one-- it was creepy but not terribly compelling. ( )

Our favorite psychopath is back. This time Dexter is helping his sister and "our nation's government" track a serial killer who has vengeance in mind. I found myself skimming in places. Not as engaging as the first book. ( )

A really good follow up to the first book in the series. I have no idea where Jeff Lindsay comes up with this stuff, but it's crazy. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. ( )

The second book in the Dexter series. Dexter is being followed around by Seareant Doakes which means Dexter's dark passenger doesn't get to come out and play. Instead he is stuck being a couch potato at his girlfriend Rita's house. Then Dexter and his sister get called in to a gruesome scene and his sister's new boyfriend disappears and she insists that Dexter find him. I enjoyed the dark humor of the book and like that Lindsay can make you feel like you are inside the mind of a serial killer. ( )

Dedication
For Tommie and Gus, who have certainly waited long enough.
First words
It's that moon again, slung so fat and low in the tropical night, calling out across a curdled sky and into the quivering ears of that dear old voice in the shadows, the Dark Passenger, nestled snug in the backseat of the Dodge K-car of Dexter's hypothetical soul.
