Dexter in the Dark

Book 3, Dexter

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


In his work as a Miami crime scene investigator, Dexter Morgan is accustomed to seeing evil deeds. . . particularly because, on occasion, he commits them himself. But Dexter's happy existence is turned upside down when he is called to an unusually disturbing crime scene at the university campus. Dexter's Dark Passenger – mastermind of his homicidal prowess – immediately senses something chillingly recognizable and goes into hiding. Dexter is alone for the first time in his life, and he realizes he's being hunted by a truly sinister adversary. Meanwhile he's planning a wedding and trying to learn how to be a stepfather to his fiancé's two kids – who might just have dark tendencies themselves. Macabre, ironic, and wonderfully entertaining, Dexter in the Dark goes deeper into the psyche of one of the freshest protagonists in recent fiction.

This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Lindsay's Dexter's Final Cut. 

Publishers Weekly Review

Jul 23, 2007 – In Lindsay’s third novel to feature endearing Miami cop and serial killer Dexter Morgan (after 2005’s Darkly Devoted Dexter), the Dark Passenger, the voice inside Dexter’s head that from time to time drives him to the “Theme Park of the Unthinkable,” inexplicably disappears while Morgan is investigating a gruesome double murder on the University of Miami campus. The crime scene, at which two co-eds were ritualistically burned and beheaded, gives even the human vivisection–loving vigilante the creeps. As the burned and beheaded body count continues to mount, Morgan realizes that the force behind the killings is something even more evil than his Dark Passenger. Though the macabre wit that powered the first two installments of this delightfully dark series (also a hit on TV’s Showtime) is still evident, this third entry takes a decidedly deep introspective turn as Dexter is forced to contemplate not only life without his enigmatic companion but also who—or what—he truly is.

Customer Reviews



Just Okay.

After the masterpiece of the second Dexter book I was disappointed with the direction the third book, and assuming the remaining have taken. I will give the fourth book a read but have low expectations.

Great storytelling

Excellent storytelling on Lindsay's behalf. However, I did NOT like the direction that was taken with the story. Dearly Devoted Dexter so far, is my favorite book in the series and I am excited to start Dexter By Design in hopes that the story takes a better turn.
