Dexter is Dead by Jeff Lindsay
The last entry in the series found dear Dexter in a damning situation. Dexter didn’t do what he’s accused of – he didn’t kill those people! (Yes, true, he’s killed lots of people, but not these specific people!) Dexter is in jail, his sister has turned her back on him and the kids are with child services. Who will rescue our anti-hero and his dark passenger? Well, you know what is thicker than water right?
I have listened to all seven of the Dexter books, so of course I had to listen to the eighth. Yes, they are dark and dreadful, but the reader (who is also the author) is terrific. If you even slightly enjoyed the television series you will love the books. Also, while the first season of the television show does mirror the first book to a point, it diverges from the plot we viewed and goes in completely different directions. The characters are the same, but everything else has changed. Were you really bummed that a favorite character died in the television show? Fear not, chances are the character is still alive in the books!
Let’s face it; the title is pretty in your face and straightforward. However, things are left open at the end. It’s up to you dear reader to decide. Is Dexter dead?
