Book Description

18 Aug 2011 Dexter series
Everything's changing for our friendly neighbourhood serial killer. As if getting married wasn't enough to complete his nice-guy persona, Dexter is now the proud father of a baby girl. And disconcertingly, he actually seems to care. But even if fatherhood is distracting Dexter from his midnight excursions to rid Miami of a few more lowlifes, there's no let-up at work. Two young girls are missing - and it's not long before one of the bodies turns up, partially eaten. But as Dexter and Miami PD's finest investigate, Dexter can't shake the feeling that somebody's watching him...

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, though different 1 Aug 2010
This is another enjoyable Dexter novel from Jeff Lindsay. This book sees Dexter as a new father, and his little girl, Lily-Anne, is giving him a new view on life. He decides to give up the dark ways, and focus on being a good father. Deborah on the other hand needs Dexter's dark side for help on her latest case, which involves a cannibal kidnapping!

Due to severely pared down gore, this book reads more like a detective novel than a traditional Dexter novel, but is very enjoyable none the less. Jeff Lindsay writes better and better every book, with dialogue and pacing better that before. The plot in this one is a little weak however, with a couple of very obvious plot twists (probably best to call them plot kinks really), and some rather obvious sign posting.

Another disappointing evolution is Dexter's new found humanity. This essentially manifests as him being bossed around and manipulated, as well as being less focussed. This is a strange book in the series in some ways, being quite good, but in completely different ways than the previous Dexter novels. Recommended as a book in the series, especially with the intriguing reintroduction of an old character, but not a classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lindsay goes through motions 9 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
You sense Jeff Lindsay is quickly running out of steam just the same way his main character Dexter Morgan is.

Lindsay's "Dexter" series, which launched thrillingly under a curdled yellow moon five instalments ago, waxed quickly, reaching a crescendo with its Showtime TV serialisation which itself flourished madly and is now in its fourth or fifth series. Dexter's literary progress has been somewhat more stately, and for good reason: it's tough to know where to go with a set-up as singular as Dexter's. By instalment 3 Dexter was already presenting Lindsay with scenario dilemmas: an avenging vigilante psychopath operating under cover as a mild-mannered forensic scientist in bloodthirsty Miami (so much so Hong-Kong Phooey) - is such an improbable set up even for a one-off, let alone a series - that plot developments are inevitably constrained. After all, there are only so many times a supremely gifted and unscrupulous evil-doer can figure out Dexter's saucy secret before it becomes implausible that no-one else does.

And while, on one hand, there's not really anywhere a character like Dexter can go: he can't settle down and get married and have kids; he can't share his secret; he can't give up his nocturnal urges *and* stay interesting - on the other hand what gives these novels their dramatic impetus is precisely that Dexter sails so close to the wind that, to remain plausible as an ongoing proposition he has to do these things.

4.0 out of 5 stars DADDY DEXTER... 8 Mar 2012
Well, now that Dexter is the darling, doting daddy of Lily Anne, his newborn daughter, his psyche is taking more of a turn for the normal. After all, not only is he married, but he has a child now. Could anything be more human than that? So, Dexter is even feeling human emotion, at times, which is somewhat trying to his Dark Passenger, who yearns to get out and play. Of course, Dexter would not be Dexter, if there were not a situation that required his specific skill set.

When Dexter, a blood splatter expert, becomes involved at the behest of his detective sister with the disappearance of two teenage girls, all hell breaks loose. What Dexter discovers is not just an ordinary group of Goths with a vampire fetish, drinking blood, but a secret cabal of cannibals, ready and eager to devour human flesh.

Once again, Dexter is captivating. With sardonic humor and self-deprecating wit, he is quite amusing, even when faced with life and death decisions. Alas, his detective sister has become less so. In fact, as a character, I now find her one dimensional and downright tiresome. She is a one note joke, adding a discordant note to the book, as she has become unlikable. This is a shame, as she is a tie to Dexter's mentor, Harry, who enshrined the code by which Dexter and his Dark Passenger live.

Still, the book is enjoyable, overall, and fans of Dexter will not be disappointed. Readers will turn the last page of this book and find themselves eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the rest. 25 Jan 2011
Is this book as good as the first two Dexter books? Sadly not. But it is something of a return to form after the mediocre third and fairly unspectacular fourth books in the series.

I would however like to echo what some other reviewers have mentioned regarding the "dumbing down" of the gore levels compared to other books in the series. Dexter's description of his killings isn't nearly as visceral or hard-edged as they have been (particularly in the first book), and for me this is partly due to what seems like a slight lack of anger and motive on the part of Dexter. His motive has changed from rage at the thought of (for example) children suffering at the hands of a deranged priest, to just wanting to make sure there are less bad people in Miami to hurt his new-born baby. I would plead with writer Jeff Lindsay to create some more evil characters for Dexter to really get annoyed about, even if it's just for his "minor killings" which are aside from the main plot.

Despite this, the book is still a very enjoyable read. As with most of the other books there are a couple of plot holes which aren't fully explained, but these really don't distract the reader too much. Certain aspects, including part of the ending can be a little bit predictable also, but the climax still manages to thrill in the classic Dexter way.

This probably isn't the right book to get started with if you are new to the Dexter series, but if you enjoyed the first two and were disappointed with books three and four, I would encourage you to give this a go. I certainly wasn't disappointed.
