Dexter in the Dark ( Vintage Crime/Black Lizard) (Reprint) (Paperback) by Jeffry P. Lindsay
About this item
Jeff Lindsay's vigilante cop returns in DEXTER IN THE DARK. Dexter Morgan is a policeman by day, a serial killer by night, but when he is called to investigate a horrific murder on a Miami college campus, even he is rattled by the decapitation of two young students. The murder seems to quiet the voice in Dexter's head that usually compels him to seek justice and kill, though Dexter isn't exactly sure why. Lindsay's even darker than usual in his third Dexter novel, and fans of the hit Showtime series are sure to gobble up this latest installment.
In his work as a Miami crime scene investigator, Dexter Morgan is accustomed to seeing evil deeds. . . particularly because, on occasion, he commits them himself. But Dexter's happy existence is turned upside down when he is called to an unusually disturbing crime scene at the university campus. Dexter's Dark Passenger ? mastermind of his homicidal prowess ? immediately senses something chillingly recognizable and goes into hiding. Dexter is alone for the first time in his life, and he realizes he's being hunted by a truly sinister adversary. Meanwhile he's planning a wedding and trying to learn how to be a stepfather to his fiancé's two kids ? who might just have dark tendencies themselves. Macabre, ironic, and wonderfully entertaining, Dexter in the Dark goes deeper into the psyche of one of the freshest protagonists in recent fiction.
