The Basis for a New ShowtimeŽ Original Series Starring Michael C. Hall

Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep’s clothing. He’s handsome and charming, but something in his past has made him abide by a different set of rules. He’s a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people. And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him in the perfect position to identify his victims. But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened–of himself or some other fiend.

The book came packaged well and not a crease in it for a paperback. The description told me what the book was about. Would highly recommend others to buy books from Overstock. Read full review

User Review  - jc8808 - Overstock.com

I bought the first two books as a birthday gift for a friend who loves the show Dexter and he was very pleased. The books showed up within a week and with my O discount it was 5 dollars or so cheaper than buying them individually at the store and more convenient. Read full review
