Think that a sympathetic serial killer (he only kills other serial killers) is too big a stretch? Think again--this book is gruesome but amazingly entertaining, tightly plotted, with keen character-izations and a great deal of wit. And it may well be even more effective in the ear than on the page, since Nick Landrum gives smooth, handsome, polite, deranged Dexter Morgan a really charming, disarming voice--just what your damaged, murderous, but other-wise pure-hearted hero needs to keep you hooked. Dexter's foster sister, a cop who longs to make detective, his girlfriend (who has no idea what she's dealing with in Dexter), and a wide range of other high- and lowlifes are equally winning. It's quite a trip. B.G. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
