Fiction's most likeable serial killer is back and all he'd like is a little peace to enjoy his hobby but Sargeant Doakes is watching closely, Dexter discovers beer and the problems caused by too much of it as well as the joys of being a surrogate dad and when someone starts commiting hideous mutilations Dexter just can't find a moment for himself. Even funnier and more enjoyable than the first Dexter book, the author has created a great character

In this second outing the humour is even darker, with cutting wit and keen observation of the mores of today's society. Some excrutaingly brilliant dialogue between dexter and both his alter ego and new playmate. I look forward to seeing how they attempt to dilute this for any new tv series they may make.

 An excellent sequel

This is the second book of Dexter and he has a lot more to handle namely sgt doakes who is adamant that he will catch Dexter enjoying his hobby. The storyline is new (as in not in the tv show) It is a good bit darker than the show as the other seriel killer is inclined to torture his victims. A very enjoyable book that i couldn't put down and that i doubt that ye will either

I was pleased with the first one, although it wasn't THAT good. but this one shone for me and I just have to give it 5 stars. Right from the word 'go' you have Doakes with his suspicious eye on Dexter, and it's like that all the way through and it works very well. The books are totally different from the TV series and I think that's great. I get to follow one set of storylines through the TV and another in the book - that's great news in my eyes.

So after a decent first book I think Jeff has stepped it up a gear (or two!) with this book and I'm very, very pleased with it. It's entertaining throughout and has a good, solid storyline behind the latest serial killer. There's a few odd moments which shouldn't really be in the book, but I'm just nit-picking for those because when I look back at the book I just think of positives mainly because there are so many.

Make sure you check this book out after you've read the first one. I've heard the third book isn't that good and ruins it for Jeff, but I'll be the judge of that myself.

Buy this book!

Yet again Jeff Lindsay has written a book that i can't seem to put down! The storyline is fantastics and the characters are flourishing more than ever before, keeping you gripped at every twist and turn!

This book was an absolute pleasure to read and i love the other books too! The books always seem purer than the TV adaptation, the books have more soul and let your own imagination run wild!
