Summary:

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

    Well, I'll try not to spoil ) I must say I'm a big fan of first three books. The following books were getting somewhat more and more stupid. In this one Dexter became completely dumb. It's especially funny when he constantly repeats that he is so smart and superior, while he actually can not figure out even simplest facts for few chapter. At the same time most of what Dexter is trying to figure out is completely obvious to the reader. But as if to make it even more obvious author repeats the same hints and explanations over and over again, highlighting the important details to such extend that it is getting completely obvious (and even annoying) what role it will play, especially when some of the turns of the plot are the same as in previous books. The jokes are not at all as funny as before. The overall plot and sequence of event is not only quite boring, but also somewhat independent of Dexter, and the entire book we have to listen how he doesn't understand what's going on, that he wants to eat and how he decides to which restaurant to go, and his dull logic to explain the most obvious of actions. At the same time, while we have to enjoy every single thought that passes in Dexter's head, the events in the surrounding world seem to be quite random and completely unexplained. Moreover, great parts of the plot seems not to lead anywhere. Many conversations, events, and characters could be easily removed to make the book twice shorter, without real effect on the plot. And what I'm afraid the most, is that it may not actually be the last book!
