  • August 28: Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeffry Lindsay

Dorothy Parker once wrote, "If I had a shiny gun/ I could have a world of fun/ Speeding bullets through the brains/Of the folks that cause me pains...." 

Dexter Morgan is a blood-spatter expert for the Miami Police with an uncanny knack for criminal profiling. Is he tormented by some dark affinity with the evil that men do? Not a bit. He's a very accomplished serial killer himself. Dexter's pragmatic foster dad recognized the boy's homicidal tendencies and channeled them toward a cautious and constructive vigilantism. Helping solve crimes by day and tidily filleting the worst kind of predators by moonlight, our friendly neighborhood sociopath is doing well until a new killer, who has perfected Dexter's modus operandi, surfaces. Dexter finds his carefully balanced double life rocked by strange new feelings of rivalry and kinship.   —Wright, David. "Lindsay, Jeff. Darkly Dreaming Dexter." Library Journal, June 15, 2004

Check for available copies of Jeffry Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter at the Circulation Desk or on our catalog for the book, CD, or Playaway. It is also available through Digital Downloads in e-book and audiobook formats.

Join us for our discussion on the August 28!
