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.

Should be renamed "Dexter is a D-Bag"

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!


Any additional comments?

If you're looking to read a Dexter book, please don't make this your first.

Dexter Doesn't Deliver...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

i don't know. This didn't feel like a Dexter novel to me. Re-read the first 3 books again instead.


What could Jeff Lindsay have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The characters all seem to have wandered off their respective paths and the novel suffers for it. He spends the whole book with his passenger asleep for some reason. Not much resolution or even a hint of resolution in the end.


How could the performance have been better?

it was fine.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dexter's Final Cut?

I felt much like the passengers role in this novel. Occasionally he flutters a little, but not much else happens.


Any additional comments?

Wait to see if Jeff Lindsay writes another Dexter novel to complete this story and assure us all that Dexter is not a deliberate douche.
