Thanks to MizB for hosting this fun Friday meme!
Oh boy oh boy oh boy!! There's another Dexter book coming out on September 8th! I know that Dexter is popular now, I mean...he's got his own TV show! But I've been reading the series since its inception and I'm thrilled that there's another one on the way. Creepy, macabre and TOTALLY AWESOME!! But I haven't watched the show....I don't ever seem to have the time)
Dexter by Design by Jeff Lindsay
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.
*edited Because a couple folks asked, there are three other Dexter books,
Darkly Dreaming Dexter
Dearly Devoted Dexter
Dexter in the Dark and now the new one
Dexter by Design.
and yup...I'd read them in order, but that might be because I'm sort of compulsive that way. You'd probably be able to pick any one of them up and know what's up.
