Dearly Devoted Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

Dexter Morgan is back in Dearly Devoted Dexter. He's a blood spatter specialist with the Miami Police Department, and he's also a serial killer. He feeds his inner demon by killing evil people, particularly those who prey on children. When Dearly Devoted Dexter begins, Dexter has just dispatched his latest victim, a pedophile. His inner demon wants to kill again and Dexter already chosen his next prey, but Sergeant Doakes knows something is not right with Dexter and follows him everywhere. Frustrated, Dexter lays low, hanging out with his fake girlfriend and spending time with her son, who shows some of the same predilections. He's back in the game when his sister, a police detective, needs his help with a new serial killer who slowly mutilates his victims to death. Jeff Lindsay's sequel is a return to its dark, macabre humor and unique protagonist. Dearly Devoted Dexter has received mostly positive reviews with the Miami Herald saying, "Perhaps the best trick in this fascinating and entertaining novel is that readers may find Dexter endearing. And they will be able to sleep well at night knowing that when the moon is 'slung so fat and low in the tropical night, calling out across a curdled sky,' Dexter will be joyfully visiting a playmate who deserves his attention."
