Dexter is now a major ITV 1 series, adapted by the award-winning writer of THE SOPRANOS, and starring Michael C. Hall of SIX FEET UNDER. Dexter is one of the most original and exciting heroes to bloody the pages of a serial killer thriller. DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER was shortlisted for the 2005 Barry Awards. Both the previous DEXTER novels have received excellent reviews: 'A sleek black comedy' LITERARY REVIEW 'A virtuoso debut by a new young American author, this is a compulsive trip through territory rendered familiar by the psycho-thrillers of Thomas Harris and Michael Connelly ... Articulate and ghoulish, Dexter is one of a kind and his adventures never fail to entertain' GUARDIAN '[A] macabre tour-de-force' NEW YORK TIMES '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' GUARDIAN

Miami crime scene investigator Dexter Morgan kills but only really evil people and only when told to by his Dark Passenger. But the latest crime Dexter encounters is so awful that even the Dark Passenger is spooked. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
"Dark humour at its creepy best" DAILY EXPRESS
In Lindsay's third novel to feature endearing Miami cop and serial killer Dexter Morgan (after 2005's Darkly Devoted Dexter), the Dark Passenger, the voice inside Dexter's head that from time to time drives him to the "Theme Park of the Unthinkable," inexplicably disappears while Morgan is investigating a gruesome double murder on the University of Miami campus. The crime scene, at which two co-eds were ritualistically burned and beheaded, gives even the human vivisection-loving vigilante the creeps. As the burned and beheaded body count continues to mount, Morgan realizes that the force behind the killings is something even more evil than his Dark Passenger. Though the macabre wit that powered the first two installments of this delightfully dark series (also a hit on TV's Showtime) is still evident, this third entry takes a decidedly deep introspective turn as Dexter is forced to contemplate not only life without his enigmatic companion but also who-or what-he truly is.
