Jeff Lindsay is the New York Times bestselling author of the Dexter novels, which debuted in 2004 with DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER. They are the basis of the hit Showtime and CBS series, "Dexter." He lives in South Florida with his family.
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 his innocence. But the stakes are deadly, and the epic showdown that lies in Dexter's path may lead to his demise once and for all.
When mega-star Robert Chase and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research," Chase becomes fixated on blood spatter analyst Dexter Morgan. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem: Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime.
Dexter Morgan enjoys his day job as a blood spatter analyst --- but he lives for his nighttime hobby of hunting other killers. When he discovers that someone is shadowing him, observing him, and copying his methods, Dexter is not pleased. But he is not one to tolerate displeasure --- in fact, he has a knack for extricating himself from trouble in his own pleasurable way.
