I love Dexter, you will too if you allow him into your heart.  He is a serial killer with a difference, very human, very clever and very thought-provoking.  Here he is off to Paris on his honeymoon where grotesque art disrupts his bliss.  You’ve got to read him.


Comparison: Unique, but try: Simon Lewis (Bad Traffic), Patrick Quinlan, Christopher Bookmyre.

Dexter by Design Synopsis

Being a blood spatter analyst who hates the sight of blood has always made Dexter's work for the Miami PD tough. But it means he's very neat when it comes to his out-of-hours hobby: murder. Of course, the fact Dexter only kills bad people helps too.

Now Dex is facing a disturbing situation. He's used to blood at work, and blood when he's out with the dark passenger (the voice that guides him on his deadly outings). But he's not sure what to make of the man who says blood is art. Using bodies as his canvas, someone is out there expressing themselves in the most lethal and painful of ways.

If Dexter's to escape the scalpel and avoid becoming the latest exhibit, he needs somewhere to run... and he might just have found the perfect place. With his wedding looming, completing his nice-guy disguise, Dexter's honeymoon might just save his skin.

From the most original voice in crime fiction, DEXTER BY DESIGN is an enthralling, macabre and gruesomely entertaining thriller.

Dexter by Design Press Reviews

'A clever, sardonic, constantly surprising novel that reveals Dexter to be much better company than Hannibal Lecter. The incredibly gory climax is both horrifying and hilarious - a very difficult trick to pull off. If only all thrillers could be this good.' EVENING STANDARD
 
'Another very successful encounter with the wickedly entertaining Dexter... there are genuinely funny situations, very clever plots and many excellent one-liners. Dexter has a way of getting under your skin and making you like him.'  Matthew Lewin, GUARDIAN
 
'Dexter - still good guy, still homicidal maniac, still genius. Join the fan club.' DAILY RECORD
