This third outing of serial killer Dexter Morgan has something new for the oddly affecting and strangely likable blood-splatter expert. (Dexter kills only people who deserve to be killed, especially other serial killers.) Narrator Nick Landrum uses a sneering, wicked, and twisted adolescent tone to imbue Dexter's take on his impending marriage, which will also involve his becoming a stepfather. Landrum expertly allows anxiety to seep into Dexter's narrative as the ever present voice in his head, called "the Dark Passenger," leaves him just when he needs him most. Is Dexter, for the first time in his life, feeling something for another human being? Why should we care? Because narrator Landrum makes us.
