    Bookmarque: In every way a better book than any Dexter novel. Excellent villain and a more compelling story. This man can write.

Definitely more than a little gross at times, but still good cheeky humor. I'm not sure I like this series, but I definitely don't hate it. ( )

I stayed up way past my bedtime a couple of nights in a row reading this for two reasons: 1) I found the book impossible to put down, and 2) I was so creeped out I couldn't have slept anyway.

Just as I experienced with the first in the series, this book quickly pulled me in and refused to let go. Dexter is his usual charming and eerily captivating self; following him and his Dark Passenger around is a fascinating exercise in realizing I can like someone and, at the same time, never want to spend a moment in the same room with him. In this instalment, Jeff Lindsay has developed not only a unique and engrossing main character but also a truly messed up villain whose victims (what's left of them) are the stuff of nightmares.

And yet, despite the horribly macabre subject matter, the book is extremely funny. There's an undercurrent of dark humour running through the pages that had me chuckling aloud numerous times. (And then promptly feeling guilty about it; like laughing at a funeral.)

Is this the best thriller plot in the world? Not by a long shot. Yet I loved every minute of it, even when some of the details of the police investigation got a little farfetched. Can't wait to dive into the third in the series! ( )

Jeff Lindsay has an incredible series that has me hooked! I can't wait to pick up the next novel.

Dexter yet again is at his tricks, except this time he has to be the real hero. The change in plot was fantastic, focusing more on Dexter being a "good guy" than a "good bad guy".

If anything, I felt this book was a little to long. It seemed like it could have ended a few chapters earlier, but it was still fantastic! I want the next book immediately!

Five out of five stars! ( )
  Briars_Reviews | Aug 4, 2023 |
This one was a bit of an improvement over Lindsay's first Dexter novel, Darkly Dreaming Dexter.

Dexter becomes a more rounded character, which has the side effect of making him a more sympathetic character than in the previous novel.

This one was well written enough that I will trudge on into the third Dexter novel. ( )
  waconner | Jun 29, 2023 |
Love, love, love, love, love Dexter! I found book 2 to be a lot funnier than book 1, actually laughing out loud a lot as opposed to more internal chuckling in book 1. What can you say about a second book in a series. Hopefully you read the first one first, and by now, you know if you enjoy reading the Dexter series or not. If you liked book 1, book 2 doesn't dissapoint. If you didn't like book 1, why even bother reading book 2? ( )

It's that moon again, slung so fat and low in the tropical night, calling out across a curdled sky and into the quivering ears of that dear old voice in the shadows, the Dark Passenger, nestled snug in the backseat of the Dodge K-car of Dexter's hypothetical soul.
