Darkly Dreaming Dexter Summary

Plot Summary

"Darkly Dreaming Dexter" is a novel by Jeff Lindsay. Dexter Morgan is a blood analysis expert, who also happens to be a serial killer. Dexter's foster father, a police officer named Harry Morgan, taught Dexter how to kill in a way that will keep him from getting caught. Harry also taught Dexter to only kill people who deserve to die. As a result, Dexter only targets serial killers and child molesters. When, through his sister, Dexter gets involved in the case of a new serial killer who kills with an absence of blood evidence, Dexter finds his serial-killing soul mate. The only question is, will Dexter help his sister bring the killer to justice, or will he save this killer for his own brand of justice. Darkly Dreaming Dexter is an amusing twist on an old formula that will leave readers rethinking their own definition of justice.
