Series: Dexter (Book 2)

Synopsis: Miami's best-dressed serial killer is back and on the prowl, at least he would be if he could shake off his permanent shadow. Ever since their paths first crossed, Sergeant Doakes hasn't let Dexter Morgan out of his sight. Dexter may well be the Miami PD's blood-spatter analyst, but Sgt. Doakes has a pretty good idea of how Dex likes to spend his free time and he's determined to catch him in the act. Dex hasn't killed in months and is getting twitchy. To throw Doakes off his scent, he's spending more time with Rita, his girlfriend. But no matter how many cosy nights they spend in front of the TV, Doakes is still watching. Then a body turns up, horribly mutilated and barely alive. To trap the torturer, Doakes and Dexter will have to work together, if they can trust each other. It's a devil's pact and one of them will have to be the bait...

Review: Dexter's back, but this time he's under constant surveillance from Sgt. Doakes, who is sure he's up to something. So Dexter turns to a 'normal' life, spending more time with girlfriend Rita and her two children. But when another serial killer moves to town and Rita starts thinking things are more serious between them, Dexter starts to feel incredibly suffocated...

I really enjoyed this one, especially as I didn't know any of the storyline from the TV show. I really like Dexter, and I find it weird that I can really like a serial killer, but he's so nice for a bad guy and you can't help finding him kind of cute, and pretty funny at times too. The storyline regarding the new killer was really good too, and pretty brutal when it came to the victims, which even I found slightly shocking and I've read lots of thrillers in the past. This is definitely my favourite so far and I can't wait to read the other two in the series!
