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!
