Book #110 was Dearly Devoted Dexter, Jeff Lindsay’s second Dexter book. The back of the book reads:
Lifeâ€™s tough for Dexter Morgan. Itâ€™s not easy being the worldâ€™s only serial killer with a conscience, especially when you work for the Miami police. To avoid suspicion, Dexterâ€™s had to slip deep into his disguise: spending time with his girlfriend and her kids, slowly becoming the worldâ€™s first serial killing couch potato.
Then a particularly nasty psychopath starts cutting a trail through Miami â€” a killer whose twisted techniques leave even Dexter speechless. When his sister Deborah, a tough-as-nails cop, is drawn into the case, it becomes clear that Dexter will have to do come out of hiding and hunt the monster down. Unless, of course, the killer finds him first. . .
I love Dexter’s narrative voice in this series. The bad guy in this book is especially heinous, and I was surprised at how far Lindsay was willing to go with some of his main characters. I really look forward to the next book! Dexter has some interesting changes coming in his life.
