Review: Double Dextor by Jeff Lindsay

Orion, £14.99

Dexter Morgan is a forensic blood-spatter analyst for the Miami-Metro Police Department, who is, in his spare time, urged on by his Dark Passenger alter ego, a prolific mass murderer.

His tally so far is 37 victims, but he is a killer with a mission and a strict code of ethics. He only slices and dices people that he can prove to his own satisfaction are guilty of murder and have so far escaped detection and conviction.

While Dexter has difficulty in relating to adults, he is fond of children so paedophiles frequently get the Dexter treatment. In his latest adventure Dexter realises to his horror that someone who also appears to enjoy killing knows who Dexter is and is setting him up for a big fall.

His Shadow, as Dexter calls him, seems to always be a step ahead and is killing people close to Dexter and making sure the evidence points to him.

Gory, gruesome, and wonderfully politically incorrect, tongue-in-cheek entertainment.
