Book 35 of 52 -- Jeff Lindsay's Dearly Devoted Dexter

This is a fantastic follow-up novel about everyone's favorite serial killer.

The book plunges deeper into Dexter's mind while racing about Miami in pursuit of "Dr. Danco," a shockingly cruel master of torture from Sgt. Doakes' shadowy Army days.

This novel grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go.

I actually enjoyed this better than the first book, which was great in its own right.

"Dearly Devoted" was more fast-paced and exciting and Dexter's humor, his narration, is priceless.

His interactions with Vince Masouka, his total bewilderment at Rita's advances, his constant internal dialogue with the reader and his Dark Passenger, are hilarious.

This is dark comedy at its best.

What I love the most about Dexter is...and he endlessly refuses to admit it...he DOES have a heart, and he DOES have emotions and feelings.

Lindsey is such a talented writer!
