Everything's changing for our friendly neighbourhood serial killer. As if getting married wasn't enough to complete his nice-guy persona, Dexter is now the proud father of a baby girl. And disconcertingly, he actually seems to care. But even if fatherhood is distracting Dexter from his midnight excursions to rid Miami of a few more lowlifes, there's no let-up at work. Two young girls are missing - and it's not long before one of the bodies turns up, partially eaten. But as Dexter and Miami PD's finest investigate, Dexter can't shake the feeling that somebody's watching him...


Dexter is Delicious was another pleasing installment in the Dexter series. The storyline was fun and interesting and allowed for plenty of wry humour and some exciting action sequences. I do find Dexter a little duller since he started to 'settle down' in recent books and has tried to move away from his old pastimes. But the ending of this book hinted at a return of the old Dexter, so I hope we will see that in book six. This one gets four stars from me.
