Dexter’s Final Cut (#7) by Jeff Lindsay Book Review

“Life teaches us that human thought almost never walks hand in hand with logic, and it is usually counterproductive to raise the point.”

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.

Dean Koontz – The Vision

Most educated people were convinced that, without exception, the motivations behind the antisocial acts of violent people had their roots in poverty, broken homes, childhood traumas, parental neglect or parental ineptitude.

Mary Bergen aids the police in solving crimes, those that have happened and those that are about to. Now this gifted clairvoyant is using her psychic gift to help track a serial killer. But something terrible from Mary’s past has been invading her dreams and she is haunted by the sound of leathery wings. The killer knows secrets even she has locked away. Knows about the torture she was administered at the hands of a psycho when she was a little girl. And he is coming for her next.

Double Dexter (#6) Jeff Lindsay

Jeff Lindsay really found his ideal character in Dexter Morgan and he can write him really well – to a point where you have a continuous narrative and a character that does not stray outside of his well defined psychotic self.

Dexter is filled with witty comments about everyone and everything, can make you smile with delight as he complains about the Miami traffic or the money-grabbing attitude of tourist locations or can make you groan when he does stupid things like click on a link in an email from an unknown sender.

“I sighed; as comforting as it may be to some of us, sarcasm, like youth, is wasted on the young.”

End of Watch (The Bill Hodges Trilogy Book 3) – Stephen King

It seemed to him that whoever thought that one up really got hold of something, because it was darker than a woodchuck’s asshole this morning, and dawn wasn’t far away.

You gotta give it to Mr. King. He can definitely write a good horror novel. If you have liked these lovely books involving Finders Keepers, you might have run across “End of Watch” – the last story involving Bill Hodges before he finds his untimely death.
