I have loved the charming monster that is Dexter right from the start and must profess myself bitterly disappointed that there is no more. It is hard to enjoy the approaching climax of the book knowing that it is the last time Dexter will wield his knife. Fans of course must read this one as Dexter takes a stab at Hollywood but it’s not the one to start with. I recommend those new to the series to start with Darkly Dreaming Dexter. The success of the TV series has of course had an impact on the book but they are different in so many ways that it is easily possible to enjoy both. It’s been a great run, Dexter. Where will the highly talented Jeff Lindsay take us next?
Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan. Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for 'research', Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem ...Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight and away from the prying eyes of bloated Hollywood egos if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair. The last thing he needs is bright lights and the paparazzi ...but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame. Jeff Lindsay's razor sharp, devilish wit, and immaculate pacing prove that he is in a class of his own, and this new novel is his most masterful creation yet.
