Dexter’s Final Cut by Jeff Lindsay
Dexter gets a taste of Hollywood in the latest series entry, and he loves it. The life of an actor (or at least consultant to the stars) suits Dexter. He likes the high life. He likes being a bodyguard to a starlet with a scary serial killer as a stalker. He likes not having to be concerned about paying the mortgage or navigating the pitfalls of being of married with children. Dexter could get used to this life. But life often has a way of sending a curveball when you least expect, or want it.
I have to admit, this one grossed me out a bit. Doesn’t happen very often, but listening to the discovery of the first body, and all the description that went along with that discovery, made me squirm a little. That doesn’t mean I’ll stop listening to the series on audiobook. There is something wonderfully creepy about Dexter speaking directly to you; helps that the author reads his own books and does a great job.
I will tell you this. The books are NOTHING like the series. If a person died in the books, they were alive in the series and vice versa. That is, until now. The ending of this one is a shock and I can’t wait to find out what happens next.
