After seven national best sellers and eight seasons as one of the most successful shows on television, New York Times best-selling author Jeff Lindsay bids a thrilling farewell to his uniquely twisted and beloved serial killer, Dexter Morgan. Dexter Is Dead is the definitive conclusion of the character who has become a global icon.
Dexter Morgan has burned the candle at both ends for many years: blood spatter analyst...husband...father...serial killer. And now, for the first time, his world has truly collapsed. Dexter is arrested on charges of murder. He has lost everything - including his wife, his kids, and the loyalty of his sister. Now completely alone, Dexter faces a murder charge (for a crime, ironically, he did not actually commit). His only chance for freedom lies with his brother, Brian, who has a dark plan to prove Dexter's innocence. But the stakes are deadly, and the epic showdown that lies in Dexter's path may lead, once and for all, to his demise.
Jeff Lindsay's trademark devilish wit and cutting satire have never been sharper. Dexter Is Dead marks the end of a beloved series, but is also Dexter's most satisfying and suspenseful outing yet.

Parting is such sweet sorrow

A sorry end to a great series
Dexter isn't for everyone, but this final book in the Dexter series isn't worth recommending to anyone--perhaps someone I don't like.
Dexter's Dead didn't stick to the premise that made the series enjoyable. I don't know which is worse, Lindsay abandoning all his characters to present a finale book with a plot one inch deep. Brian, Debs, Astor, and Dexter are unrecognizable. Not even Cody is consistent with his previous character.
The performance characterized Dexter as a prissy self-involved who is almost normal, which is a crime by itself.
The only redeeming quality of this book is that it clearly demonstrates that Jeff Lindsay no longer wants to write Dexter books.
