Dexter's Final Cut - Jeff Lindsay

Dexter's disguise just got much more complicated. With a budding know-it-all teenage girl and a fresh infant, he and Rita are struggling to stay sane. And his job as a blood splatter analyst has gotten messier now that he has to educate a visiting television star with a weak stomach. His sister, Deborah, isn't much happier with her own tag along premadonna shadowing her every step and expression. After deciphering the similarities between this case and several others, he determines the person responsible is revving up to attack the actress assigned to Deborah. Now he's given the additional stress of acting as a body guard and no time for himself. But maybe he can find another hobby to indulge in to make up for his lack of night time activity.

Can Dexter protect the actress from this serial killer? How is his family coping with his absence? Can Cody and Astor keep their demons at bay without his guidance?

Dexter's observational point of view and limited emotional range is fascinating to me and it has stayed consistent throughout the series. The story itself wasn't as interesting to me as some of the previous books. I didn't feel that there was much mystery in who the perpetrator was; in fact, I figured it out way in the beginning of the novel. The cliffhanger, however, is enough to keep me around for another book.

Books in the series:
Darkly Dreaming Dexter
Dearly Devoted Dexter
Dexter in the Dark
