With 1.7 million copies of the Dexter novels sold, and ever-increasing critical acclaim, Jeff Lindsay returns to his groundbreaking and beloved character with his most entertaining book yet. Get ready for a grisly send-up of Hollywood, and a full dose of dark Dexter wit.

Lights. Camera. Mayhem. You won't find this story on television.

Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan.

Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research," Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem . . . Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight and away from the prying eyes of bloated Hollywood egos if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair. The last thing he needs is bright lights and the paparazzi. . . but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame.

Jeff Lindsay's razor sharp, devilish wit, and immaculate pacing prove that he is in a class of his own, and this new novel is his most masterful creation yet.

I didn't really like the way this book ended. It left you hanging in the air.

Seems like Jeff Lindsay got confused about who Dexter is. He seemed to take on the characteristics of the Dexter character of the last season of the show, as opposed to his literary character. A bit of a bummer.

A terrible Dexter book. You'll be grateful when it's over; I know I was. I wouldn't recommend reading this one.

I did not like Dexter's treatment and thoughts toward Rita, nor his foray into the glitter and superficiality of Hollywood. I can accept him as a lovable serial killer, but not this slimey version of Dexter. Hope the books don't end, not after how the TV show butchered what could of been a brilliant finale.

Is this really the last book in this series? I found myself caught up in the plot, even after I finished reading it. Can they really end it this way?

Dexter wants to be a movie star! It is interesting how much the book character has diverged from the TV series character. But I have to say I really enjoy the book Dexter! Not to say I don't enjoy the TV series too. It's a really great read for those who enjoy the rather odd view on life of a serial killer that also works for the police department.

What a pleasant find - and it's apparently the last book in this series (like Sherlock Holmes?) Anyway the story is great and the author a real wordsmith. Very witty. Did wonder who this apparently law abiding although "non human" Dexter went around killing and the precis confirmed my suspicion. Phew! Can't wait to read more about this delicious Dexter.
