Dexter Morgan isn't exactly the kind of man you'd bring home to your mum. At heart, he's the perfect gentleman - he is supportive of his sister Deb, a Miami cop; he has a shy girlfriend and is liked by her young children. In fact, Dex seems to lead a quiet, normal life bordering on the mundane. Despite the fact that he can't stand the sight of blood, he works as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami police. But Dexter also has a secret hobby: he is an accomplished serial killer. So far, he's killed 36 people and has never been caught because he knows exactly how to hide the evidence. And while that may lead some people to assume he's not such a nice guy - he tempers his insatiable hunger for brutality by only killing the bad guys. However, Dexter's well-organised life is suddenly disrupted when a second, much more visible serial killer appears in Miami. Intrigued that the other killer favours a style similar to his own, Dexter soon realises that the mysterious new arrival is not simply invading his turf but offering him a direct invitation to 'come out and play'...

 Brilliant Book Darkly Dreaming of more

I disagree with the previous comment, the book is very different to the tv series. The end is different, the relationship with Debra is different (more twists and turns), the discriptions of the dark passenger are more evocative in the book and it fills the gaps that sometimes a tv screen cannot. Use your imagination read the book.

i loved the TV show, but the book has many more twists and turns, and characters and events are explored more in this book than in the TV show. If you like the TV show, you will love this book.

 Same as the TV series but worth the read

After watching the TV series I was looking to buy the dvd and found the books! I got them all and read them all and even though this one pretty much follows the tv series storyline it was worth the read!
