"--New York Times Book Review " "Lindsay's original, cockeyed view of the world is alive and well."" --Los Angeles Times " "Delicious and delightful might not be the best words to describe a serial killer. Unless, of course, we're talking about the delectable Dexter Morgan. . . . Lindsay, the novelist, just keeps getting better." "--USA Today ""From the Hardcover edition." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This basic premise of this novel, that of a witness, is excellent. It really puts the pressure on Dexter in a way he hasn't been through before, he has been threatened before, a lot, but never has the tension as high as it is now. Add to that the return of his brother earlier in the series, who is forming a stronger bond with Rita and Dexters step kids, plus house hunting with Rita, Dexter is really up against it this time.
There is a sub plot with Rita, which I won't spoil, which Jeff Lindsay cleverly manipulates the story so that the reader has a good idea what's going on in her head, whilst Dexter is completely clueless. I think this is a touch of genius, since the story is told from the point of view of Dexter who doesn't even suspect something is up, never mind being to work out what it is, whilst we, the reader, have a pretty good idea, or at least strong suspicions, what Rita is thinking. Dexters blind spot being down to the fact that emotions are such an alien concept to him.
This brings me onto one of the other excellent things about this series. Dexter is so convinced he is different from other humans, and doesn't feel emotion, yet his thoughts and actions show otherwise.Read more ›
around his daughter is reaching the toddler stage, Rita is adament
about buying a new propert, and dear brother Brian is putting on
pressure about joining in for one of his victims.
One night Dexter is slaying a child molestor who poses as a clown
for kids parties. He is seen by a person in a red Honda - wwhich
leads to him being stalked, black mailed and maybe even dead!
The one thing this novel definitly doesn't lack is suspense.
However at times I thought it did drag on. It is the longest of
the series but by no doubt the second best. There is a slow build
up to the climatic ending which believe me really makes it worthy
while. The suspense in the last fifty pages are amazing. The humor
is also top-notch, particuarly with Doakes, the cop you love to hate.
If you are a fan of the novels and series then this is a must have!
