Here at iamjanesheart, we’re counting down to the release of the final Dexter book by catching up on the past novels. I had read up to book 4, then saw something shiny, as is my wont. Dexter is Dead is set to release on July 7, 2015.
In Dexter is Delicious, we find Dexter dreamy-eyed, staring into the newborn nursery. His daughter, Lily Anne (who my mind insists on being called Lily Allen) has just been born and Dexter is as close to feeling emotion as a Dexter can get. He vows then and there, to give up his Dark Passenger and live a good life for Lily Anne. However, his reverie is broken by a desperate call from his sister, Deborah, who needs help with a case.
Dexter reluctantly joins his sister at a crime scene for a kidnapped girl, however, when he sees the scene he realizes that if this is the girl’s blood, the girl is dead. Dexter is now torn between a desperate desire to be with Lily Anne and Deborah’s pleas for help to find this missing girl. And with all things in Miami, this road only leads to cannibals.
