Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research," Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth and seemingly average life. Chase shadows Dexter's every move, trying to learn what makes him tick. However, Dexter's favorite pastime of hunting down the worst killers who've escaped legal prosecution--and introducing them to his special brand of justice--presents, well, a bit of a problem. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair, but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame. . . .

"Lindsay just keeps getting better. His stories are wonderfully fresh." --USA Today
"One of the most likable vigilante serial killers in recent thriller literature."--The New Yorker
"Gory? Yes. Appalling? Absolutely! Funny? Amazingly so!"--Los Angeles Times

"Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love."—Entertainment Weekly
"The real appeal of this macabre tour-de-force is Dexter's sardonic voice, so snappy and smart, and yet so full of self-loathing that we hate ourselves for laughing."—The New York Times Book Review
"It's like very little else you've read. Imagine if Hannibal Lecter starred in CSI: Miami instead of David Caruso, and you're halfway there.”—Time
