Publisher's Summary

With 1.7 million copies of the Dexter novels sold, and ever-increasing critical acclaim, Jeff Lindsay returns to his groundbreaking and beloved character with his most entertaining book yet. Get ready for a grisly send-up of Hollywood, and a full dose of dark Dexter wit.
Lights. Camera. Mayhem. You won't find this story on television.

Hollywood gets more than it bargained for when television's hottest star arrives at the Miami Police Department and develops an intense, professional interest in a camera-shy blood spatter analyst named Dexter Morgan.
Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research", Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth for doughnuts and a seemingly average life. To perfect his role, Chase is obsessed with shadowing Dexter's every move and learning what really makes him tick. There is just one tiny problem...Dexter's favorite hobby involves hunting down the worst killers to escape legal justice, and introducing them to his special brand of playtime. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight and away from the prying eyes of bloated Hollywood egos if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair. The last thing he needs is bright lights and the paparazzi...but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame.
Jeff Lindsay's razor-sharp, devilish wit, and immaculate pacing prove that he is in a class of his own, and this new novel is his most masterful creation yet.

Stumble, stumble, fall...

I always figured Dexter would die. I'm okay with that. My dream is that he be killed by a serial killer who only kills serial killers... I've been entertained by previous story lines and was ready for Dex to go out with a bang. A pop? No, it's just a whimper.. It's like the author had nothing to say and felt something had to happen anyway. The last 30 minutes may be the worst Lindsay has ever written.There is no way a Dexter fan is going to skip this book but I can't imagine them not being disapointed. Also let me say that I miss the original narrator (Nick Landry?). It's very Stephen King to say I need control over every aspect of my story but I didn't like the change at all. Lastly, the way Lindsay read the chapter headings in his super low voice sounded like farce to me. Insulting even. Dexter fans deserve better. Will there be another book to fix and finalize?

What disappointed you about Dexter's Final Cut?

Dexter is a totally different person in this novel. Previously he has always had admirable qualities despite his many flaws. In this one, he's just terribly annoying and for lack of a more sophisticated word, a real jerk.


What was most disappointing about Jeff Lindsay’s story?

I just really didn't like the whole direction of it. Dexter falls in love with a famous movie star? What?


Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Lindsay’s performances?

Of course. I'm hooked on the Dexter series regardless of how disappointing this one was.


What character would you cut from Dexter's Final Cut?

Oddly enough, Dexter!
