Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A highly ingenious scenario which reminded me of the brilliant Jules Hardy’s Mister Candid where the bad guy, in this case a forensic blood fellow, is a serial killer with heart. With an incredible insight into a killer’s mind, alongside an exciting tale, this is first rate. It’s the second in a series and despite the fact that you should despise the killer, you can’t help loving Dexter. He is such a complex character, beautifully drawn, charming and hideous in equal measures. Do go meet him.

Similar this month: None.
Comparison: Jules Hardy, Andrew Klavan.

Synopsis

Dearly Devoted Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

Miami's best-dressed serial killer is back and on the prowl, at least he would be if he could shake off his permanent shadow. Ever since their paths first crossed, Sergeant Doakes hasn't let Dexter Morgan out of his sight. Dexter may well be the Miami PD's blood-spatter analyst, but Sgt. Doakes has a pretty good idea of how Dex likes to spend his free time and he's determined to catch him in the act.

Dex hasn't killed in months and is getting twitchy. To throw Doakes off his scent, he's spending more time with Rita, his girlfriend. But no matter how many cosy nights they spend in front of the TV, Doakes is still watching.

Then a body turns up, horribly mutilated and barely alive. To trap the torturer, Doakes and Dexter will have to work together, if they can trust each other. It's a devil's pact and one of them will have to be the bait...


Reviews

'A most welcome return for Dexter Morgan... Clever and wonderfully incorrect, the adventures of Dexter are a delight for all those who like their crime fiction just that little bit twisted.'
Maxim Jakubowski
GUARDIAN

'Even better than the first... Dexter's a great new hero.'
SUNDAY SPORT
