Books and Books Coral Gables invites the public to enjoy an evening of reading and book signing with author Jeff Lindsay. His most recent book tells the story of a Miami crime scene investigator named Dexter Morgan, who is accustomed to seeing evil deeds, particularly because, on occasion, he rather enjoys committing them himself. Guided by his Dark Passenger (the voice inside him), he lives his outwardly normal life adhering to one simple rule: he kills only very bad people. Dexter slides through life undetected, working as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, helping his fiancé raise her two adorable children, and always planning his next jaunt as Dexter the Dark Avenger under the light of the full moon.
But then everything changes. Dexter is called to a crime scene that seems routine: a gruesome double homicide at the university campus, which Dexter would normally investigate with gusto, before enjoying a savory lunch. And yet this scene feels terribly wrong. Dexter’s Dark Passenger senses something it recognizes, something utterly chilling, and the Passenger – mastermind of Dexter’s homicidal prowess – promptly goes into hiding.
Macabre, ironic, and wonderfully entertaining, Dexter in the Dark goes deeper into the psyche of one of the freshest protagonists in recent fiction. Jeff Lindsay’s glorious creativity is on full display in his most accomplished novel yet. Jeff Lindsay is the author of Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter. He lives in Florida with his wife and children.
