Overview
After seven national bestsellers and eight seasons as one of the most successful shows on television, New York Timesbestselling author Jeff Lindsay bids a thrilling farewell to his uniquely twisted and beloved serial killer, Dexter Morgan.Dexter Is Deadis 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 Deadmarks the end of a beloved series, but is also Dexter's most satisfying and suspenseful outing yet."

The action of Lindsay’s downbeat eighth and final Dexter Morgan novel picks up right after the over-the-top ending of the previous book, 2013’s Dexter’s Final Cut, which left Dexter, a serial killer who targets other killers, locked in a tiny prison cell. For a change, he isn’t guilty this time, despite a damning set of circumstances. Dexter was found “in flagrante sangre” with the bodies of his wife, Rita, and actor Robert Chase at the crime scene, where his scantily clad 12-year-old adopted daughter, Astor, was also present. Although Dexter’s charged with double murder and considered a pedophile, Chase actually killed Rita, only to be killed by Astor in turn. Dexter is left in legal limbo for weeks, seemingly abandoned by everyone, including his sister, Deborah, who visits only to get him to sign over custody of his children to her. Many readers will struggle to sympathize with this antihero, and the series’s resolution won’t satisfy all fans. Author tour. Agent: Nick Ellison, Nicholas Ellison Agency. (July)
