After seven national bestsellers and eight seasons as one of the most successful shows on television, New York Times bestselling author Jeff Lindsay bids a thrilling farewell to his uniquely twisted and beloved serial killer, Dexter Morgan. Dexter Is Dead is the definitive conclusion of the character who has become a global icon.
Dexter Morgan has burned the candle at both ends for many years. Blood spatter analyst . . . husband . . . father . . . serial killer. And now, for the first time, his world has truly collapsed. Dexter is arrested on charges of murder. He has lost everything—including his wife, his kids, and the loyalty of his sister. Now completely alone, Dexter faces a murder charge (for a crime . . . ironically . . . he did not actually commit). His only chance for freedom lies with his brother, Brian, who has a dark plan to prove Dexter's innocence. But the stakes are deadly, and the epic showdown that lies in Dexter's path may lead, once and for all, to his demise.
Jeff Lindsay's trademark devilish wit and cutting satire have never been sharper. Dexter Is Dead marks the end of a beloved series, but is also Dexter's most satisfying and suspenseful outing yet.

Paid by the Word...
I'mve finally convinced that Jeff Lindsay is paid by the word. I've never read such laborious prose that was clearly designed to stretch out the pages without adding to the plot in any meaningful way. It literally takes Lindsay 5 minutes of Dexter self-dialog to figure out how to make a phone call. It's ridiculously tediouos.
And whereas a typical novel would require an entire miniseries to play out the plot properly, this novel could be done in a half hour special if you simply had Dexter walk to the phone or start his car or get up out of bed in the normal seconds it takes to do so rather than minutes like it does in the book. Seriously, what is going on with the editing here? If you can't find a way to make a fast moving interesting plot with a character like Dexter, then please hand that character over to a write who can. This is just a tragic waste of great plot materiel.
