At least, that's more or less the premise of Jeff Lindsay's wonderful new Dexter in the Dark
, which I reviewed in today's Boston Globe. Is it a departure from the previous Dexter books? Well, yes, but what would you expect in the third of a series? There's been much talk about serial killers as super heroes, but I think that Lindsay's jovial protagonist strikes home (so to speak) because he's such an Everyman. I mean, at times, wouldn't we all like to be like Dexter? And, while you're here, check out this profile of Hank Phillippi Ryan
, whose second mystery, Face Time
pubs tomorrow. We love Hank and her sweetie husband Jonathon here at Chez Musetta! Finally, I am so happy!
