Life’s tough for Dexter Morgan. It’s not easy being the world’s only serial killer with a conscience, especially when you work for the Miami police. To avoid suspicion, Dexter’s had to slip deep into his disguise: spending time with his girlfriend and her kids, slowly becoming the world’s first serial killing couch potato. Then a particularly nasty psychopath starts cutting a trail through Miami — a killer whose twisted techniques leave even Dexter speechless. When his sister Deborah, a tough-as-nails cop, is drawn into the case, it becomes clear that Dexter will have to do come out of hiding and hunt the monster down. Unless, of course, the killer finds him first. . .

Second day of my Dexter Morgan marathon and Book Two is done. Have I mentioned how much I love Audible's x3 narration speed? Well, it really isn't x3, as an eight hour book still took four hours to listen to, but it's still a quick way to barrel through a series of short books. This is the point whe...
Secondo volume della saga che vede per protagonista Dexter Morgan, ematologo della polizia di Miami, ma soprattutto, serial killer. Decisamente più macabro del primo libro, l'atmosfera viene efficacemente mitigata dall'ironia e il distacco del protagonista-narratore, che di fatto, pur essendo un ass...
5 stars for narration. Mr. Lindsay, you sir, have a creepy voice. I like it. The book was just alright. I grew tired of Dexter waxing poetic over the moon and the Dark Passenger (see what I did there? Heh.), and for someone who appreciates alliteration as much as myself it quickly became redundant. ...
