LoveReading View on Dexter in the Dark

Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended this is the 3rd in this darkly comic serial killer series. Dexter has being abandoned by the dark passenger that has made him who he is. Things get worse when its clear it has been scared off by an even more frighten supernatural force that’s now after him. On top of that he has agreed to marry Rita and her children are getting very interested in Dexter’s night time habits. The first two books are Darkly Dreaming Dexter  and Dearly Devoted Dexter.

Dexter in the Dark Synopsis

Is evil alive...? Dr Jerry Halpern is trying to find out, studying for his PhD on the subject. Dexter Morgan, meanwhile, has a few wicked things of his own to contend with - not least, planning his wedding to Rita to complete his nice-guy disguise.

But when a student of Halpern's is found burnt, molested and headless - seemingly sacrificed to an ancient god - and Dex is brought in as forensic analyst to help investigate, he realises he could be dealing with someone a whole lot more sinister than he is. Soon it seems the dark passenger in Dexter's head has gone into hiding. And when something creeps out your friendly neighbourhood serial killer, you know it's serious...

As Halpern and Dexter are stalked by death, it looks like it's getting personal - especially as Dex now has a family to protect. Gradually, Dexter realises his stepchildren might share his extra-curricular interest in death. Could he help them target their bloodlust, just as he steers his own? But to do that, Dex must cope with a certain mutilated sergeant from his past, and more importantly…stay alive…
