Dexter Morgan has burned the candle at both ends for many years. Blood spatter analyst . . . husband . . . father . . . serial killer. And now, for the first time, his world has truly collapsed. Dexter is arrested on charges of murder. He has lost everything - including his wife, his kids, and the loyalty of his sister. Now completely alone, Dexter faces a murder charge (for a crime . . . ironically . . . he did not actually commit). His only chance for freedom lies with his brother, Brian, who has a dark plan to prove Dexter's innocence. But the stakes are deadly, and the epic showdown that lies in Dexter's path may lead, once and for all, to his demise. Jeff Lindsay's trademark devilish wit and cutting satire have never been sharper. Dexter Is Dead marks the end of a beloved series, but is also Dexter's most satisfying and suspenseful outing yet.

In his work as a Miami crime scene investigator, Dexter Morgan is accustomed to seeing evil deedsparticularly because, on occasion, he rather enjoys committing them himself. Guided by his Dark Passenger (the reptilian voice inside him), he lives his outwardly normal life adhering to one simple rule: he kills only very bad people.

But then everything changes. Dexter is called to a crime scene that seems routine: a gruesome double homicide at the university campus, which Dexter would normally investigate with gusto, before enjoying a savory lunch. And yet this scene feels terribly wrong. Dexters Dark Passenger senses something it recognizes, something utterly chilling, and the Passengermastermind of Dexters homicidal prowesspromptly goes into hiding.With his Passenger on the run, Dexter is left to face this case all alonenot to mention his demanding sister (Sergeant Deborah), his frantic fiance (Rita), and the most frightening wedding caterer ever to plan a menu.

To find him, Dexter has to research the questions hes never dared ask: Who is the Dark Passenger, and where does he come from? It is nothing less than a search for Dexters own dark soulfueled by a steady supply of fresh doughnuts.Macabre, ironic, and wonderfully entertaining, Dexter in the Dark goes deeper into the psyche of one of the freshest protagonists in recent fiction.
