The Basis for a New Showtime® Original Series Starring Michael C. HallMeet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He’s a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened–of himself or some other fiend.

3.5 starsI am definitely planning to read the next book and eventually watch the show. The storyline wasn't amazing to me, but the whole idea of him and what will happen next really interests me. I didn't care much about anyone else in the story except his foster father, but I super enjoyed his in...

I knew when I picked up the book that this would be about a man who killed killers and who worked somehow with the police. These things were true. I didn't know that Dexter was literally a psychopath but maybe I should have guessed that. It was kind of a deal breaker for me. He is someone who is inc...

It was awesome to experience the origin of one of my favorite television shows. The book is like a more pure version of the show, without all of the filler. Unfortunately without the aforementioned filler, it isn't quite as enjoyable.
