Dexter Morgan isn't exactly the kind of man you'd bring home to mother. At heart, he's the perfect gentleman: he has a shy girlfriend and seems to lead a quiet, normal life bordering on mundane. Despite the fact that he can't stand the sight of blood and works as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami police.

But Dexter also has a secret: he is an accomplished serial killer. So far, he's killed 36 people and has never been caught because he knows exactly how to hide the evidence. And while that may lead some people to assume he's not such a nice guy, he tempers his insatiable hunger for brutality by only killing the bad guys.

However, Dexter's well-organised life is suddenly disrupted when a second, much more visible serial killer appears in Miami. Intrigued that the other killer favours a style similar to his own, Dexter soon realises that the mysterious new arrival is not simply invading his turf but offering him a direct invitation to 'come-out-and-play'...
Industry Reviews
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 and other masters of the dark arts of abnormal pathology * GUARDIAN *
One of the most likeable vigilante serial killers in recent thriller literature ... Like other charismatic killers - Hannibal Lecter, say, or Tom Ripley - Dexter has a set of motives that are tough to untangle. But his quest proves weirdly convincing * NEW YORKER *
A sleek black comedy * LITERARY REVIEW *
It's been years since there's been a thriller debut as original as this one ... humorous, self-deprecating, smart and sometimes lyrical - a gripping, deliciously offbeat novel * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
It's a great idea. And it's easy to see why this debut novel has gone down a storm ... the whole thing is stylish, polished and very readable * DAILY MIRROR *
Long after readers finish this gripping novel, they will still be thinking (or dreaming) about Dexter * BOOKLIST *
A macabre tour-de-force * NEW YORK TIMES *
