    Bookmarque: In every way a better book than any Dexter novel. Excellent villain and a more compelling story. This man can write.

Synopsis: Dexter is a serial killer, but he only kills people who deserve it, those who the justice system can't catch or can't prosecute. In this book, another killer is loose in his city and kidnaps his sister's boyfriend.
Review: If you are squeamish, these books aren't for you. The descriptions of torture are quite vivid. ( )

I liked this one better than the first. Dexter is growing on me. I'm certain I'll end up watching the show. The biggest thing that bugs me is his sister. She is always bitching, and every other word is GD. Ms. Potty Mouth needs a valium. I'm interested to see where his connection with his girlfriend's kids is headed. I suspected something was up with them. The details of gore in this one gave me chills, and I totally love the way his abnormal mind works. I will be continuing the series. ( )

Dexter and Doakes, constantly going head to head...until they must work together to solve the recent case of deranged Dr. Danco. Person by person, he's working on a list to wreak his revenge on the people that wronged him during the war. Doakes is on that list, and in an unlikely event, Dexter is the one that he must rely on to save him. ( )

Epigraph
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.
