Book in review: Dexter By Design (Jeff Lindsay)

The fourth Dexter book by Jeff Lindsay has restored my faith in his writing abilities. While shorter than some of his previous adventures this one is simply too good to put down. As per usual Dexter is pitted against a single enemy with his own dark passenger, in this book that enemy is Weiss, a man who uses the dead as part of works of art. When Dexter kills his partner things get interesting and Dexter finds himself trying to save his own dark children from the clutches of a madman.

It's filled with a healthy dose of gore, murder, titillating descriptions, kidnapping and suspense. Worth the wait, worth its weight. 5/5
