Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of fellow 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. . . .


Overall, Dexter's Final Cut was another enjoyable tale. I liked the Hollywood-esque setting for the action and found Dexter's relationship with the actress interesting. The ending fell a little flat for me though. It just seemed rather sudden and unfulfilling. I know there is one more book in the series, but I've also heard it received a lot of stick, and a few people whose opinion I value have said not to bother with it, so I will end my Dexter reading here with book seven. This one (and the series as a whole) gets four stars from me.
