Dexter by Design

The most likeable serial killer on the block is back…
‘Dark, devious and devilishly funny’ Evening Telegraph

Being a blood spatter analyst who hates the sight of blood has always made Dexter’s work for the Miami PD tough. But it means he’s very neat when it comes to his out-of-hours hobby: murder. Of course, the fact Dexter only kills bad people helps too.

Now Dex is facing a disturbing situation. He’s used to blood at work, and blood when he’s out with the dark passenger (the voice that guides him on his deadly outings). But he’s not sure what to make of the man who says blood is art. Using bodies as his canvas, someone is out there expressing themselves in the most lethal and painful of ways.

If Dexter’s to escape the scalpel and avoid becoming the latest exhibit, he needs somewhere to run… and he might just have found the perfect place. With his wedding looming, completing his nice-guy disguise, Dexter’s honeymoon might just save his skin.

From the most original voice in crime fiction, DEXTER BY DESIGN is an enthralling, macabre and gruesomely entertaining thriller.

One of the most likeable vigilante serial killers in recent thriller literature ... Like other charismatic killers - Hannibal Lecter, say, or Tom Ripley - Dexter has a set of motives that are tough to untangle. But his quest proves weirdly convincing

Fascinating, entertaining, and brilliant... the freshest, most terrifying creations you are ever likely to meet
