Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The plot has some nice twists, and the Miami setting contributes its own eccentric flavor. But 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.” New York Times Book Review
“A witty, grisly debut…A guilty pleasure few monster-addicts will be able to resist.” Kirkus Reviews
“Lindsay’s tale is daring and unexpectedly comedic. The writing is lively and the plot steps away from the common ground in which many thrillers are rooted. When it comes to light, the tragic incident in Dexter’s past rolls over us like a nightmare from which we can’t wake up.” USA Today
“A dark comedy with a creative twist.” Miami Herald
“Maybe the first serial killer who unabashedly solicits our love.” Entertainment Weekly
“With chills like these, you can skip the air-conditioning.” Time
“One of the most likeable vigilante serial killers in recent thriller literature.” New Yorker
“Just when you think (hope?) that the tired and rarely credible device of the serial killer next door has hit a wall, along comes a writer like Jeff Lindsay to prove you wrong…So enjoyable.” Chicago Tribune
“A fresh, inventive slice of crime fiction that turns the axis of good and evil…upside down. A psychological thriller in the best sense of the genre.” Sun-Sentinel
“A memorable debut with a hero who really ought to be in a mental institution, but is too much fun to lock up.” Rocky Mountain News
“Dexter’s captivating, first-person account is a genuinely exciting read.” Time Out New York
“This ghoulish, fascinating tale…will grip readers and make a lasting impression.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“Entertaining…Dexter is a fascinating character, though he’s not the kind of guy you’d like to invite to dinner.” Chicago Sun-Times
“Totally captivating…Totally original. The characters are beautifully drawn, particularly Dexter, who is tremendously likeable, his hobby notwithstanding.” St. Petersburg Times
“Lindsay gets high marks for originality, atmosphere, vibrant action scenes, and having the brass to write this in the first place.” Tulsa World
“Jeff Lindsay sure does it right with Darkly Dreaming Dexter.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Newcomer Jeff Lindsay has created a unique hero…Intriguing.” Mystery Scene
“In creating a singularly unique killer, Lindsay also manages to create a few sleepless nights for the reader.” Anniston Star
