I have come to the conclusion that Jeff Lindsay is one sick puppy. I don’t know what that means about me, since I love his series of Dexter books, Dexter the lovable serial killer. It doesn’t help that when I read his book, the voice I hear in my head is the same as on the Showtime Original Series and I keep seeing that cuties face.

This installment has Dexter being followed by Sergeant Doakes, which has lead Dexter to having to assume a ‘normal’ life, in danger of becoming ‘the world’s first serial killing couch potato.’ He is saved from moving from Dexter Derailed to Dexter Demented by the fact that as he says, this is Miami, and a bigger badder inhuman monster shows up. It’s a case that involves his sister who enlists Dexter’s help to hunt down the killer, but can he do it without becoming his next victim?

Jeff Lindsay keeps the tone light-hearted with his witty patter and clever use of alliteration: Debonair Dexter, Dipsophobic Dexter, Daytime Dexter and my personal favorite Delicate Dimpled Dexter.

This is a quick and enjoyable read. Pure entertainment. I recommend this book.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
