Darkly Dreaming Dexter Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Darkly Dreaming Dexter

Orphaned at a young age and adopted by a police officer, Dexter grows up and becomes not only a highly respected blood spatter technician for the Miami Dade Police Department, but also a sociopathic serial killer hot on the trail of another serial killer.

Dexter isn't just your average lab tech/serial killer. He only kills those that are killers themselves. Dexter does have a choice to make. Does he help his police officer sister capture this guy and earn a promotion or does he dish out his own brand of justice?
