    If you were to look at Dexter Morgan, you'd think he is like any other man. But he's not every other man; he has a dark secret hobby... he's a serial killer! And, so far, he's killed 36 people and never been caught, thanks to his expertise in hiding evidence - working for the Miami Police has its perks.

    In Darkly Dreaming Dexter, our 'hero' finds his very organised life disrupted when another killer with a very similar style to his own appears in Miami. But Dexter soon realises that this mysterious killer isn't just invading his turf, he's asking him to come out and play...

    Dearly Devoted Dexter sees Miami's best-dressed killer back in action, working with his work nemesis Sgt. Doakes to bring down a sadistic torturer. And if that isn't scary enough, things are getting serious with his girlfriend, Rita. And in Dexter In the Dark, Rita and Dexter are planning their wedding, but a sinister character, Death, is stalking him - how will he survive?

    An ideal collection of crime fiction titles for fans of the award-winning show (which stars Six Feet Under's Michael C. Hall as the titular character) or those yet to be introduced to the works of Jeff Lindsay and Dexter's 'Dark Passenger', the original perspective, self-deprecating humour and stunning pace of this series is what has makes the Dexter books so thrilling.
