    Disappointing

    As a Dexter fan, this seemed to be right on track. I got a little excited and couldn't wait to see how it ended. Fifteen pages should have clued me in that this could be disappointing. Do not waste your time, especially if you are looking for a typical Dexter storyline.

    Had potential

    This is a fan fiction short story. Unfortunately, the emphasis is on short. It is 15 Nook pages. But it is free, so I read it.

    The story starts out with a lot of promise, but does not deliver in the end. The beginning was good and descriptive. It set the mood and I was hopeful. The ending seemed hokey and rushed. Some of the terminology that Dexter uses in this novella are things that he would either never say or are used incorrectly.

    First and foremost, Dexter strictly adheres to the "Harry Code of Conduct", which means that he needs overwhelming evidence of guilt. Assumptions do not work for Dexter. He needs physical proof of wrongdoing (murder). It would have been interesting to know what her crimes were in detail. Also, the evidence he had against her should have been included.

    Secondly, Dexter is overly patient and a perfectionist. The timing, planning, and other factors must be absolutely perfect. He does not plan to get caught afterwards, so patience and planning are key. He uses stealth to get the victim alone, then he has them drive to their playdate. It does not take place in only one location such as the "kill house" that was mentioned. Followed by neatness and cleanliness in disposing of any evidence of his crime.

    He would never introduce himself to a "playmate" in advance and in a crowded place. He does not like crowds or an audience for his heinous deeds. I cannot, seriously, picture Dexter going to a rave...ever. His modus operandi is stealth and previous prior planning in the extreme. Dexter would not suddenly decide to call off a game of "Slice the Slasher" once he has satisfied all of his own rules of engagement. He may patiently wait for the ideal opportunity. But, after all of the work that he puts into his hobby, he would not give up on a killer. Not to mention, that the dark passenger does not willingly give up the hunt.

    This story would have been vastly improved if it was longer. There would be more room for the typical Dexter-isms, such as those listed above. I found the way that the author describes the scene, the people, etc., interesting. But, there needs to be appropriate time and attention given to the storyline and development of characters. These things make for well written and balanced books that people want to read (even if it is fanfic. I like some fan fiction, myself.)

    I do not want to be too critical. It takes a lot of guts to post your work in a public forum. You have some talent and obvious interest in the subject matter. So, please continue to write and hone your craft. Best of luck to you!

    Fail.

    While I appriciate the effort, I feel that while the author may have read the series, they failed to grasp the nuances of the character. This was evident from the first page. Had it not been an attempt at a Dexter story, it might have actually had a little merit. Unfortunately, that glaring flaw made it nearly impossible for me to read. Free or not, don't bother.

    Not at all what I thought

    I'm 13 and LOVE watching Dexter! He is a serial killer that kills other serial killers ( known as the Bay Harbor Butcher) but see he works for the forensics department (works with blood and lots of it!) for the Miami Metro. No one knows it's him and there is like 8 seasons or something. I'm only on the 3rd season and he almost gave up and told everyone that he was the Bay Harbor Butcher! This series will keep you on the age of your seat! I forgot ye was adopted because he avtually watched his mother get murdered when he was like 3 years old... well him and his long lost brother who was the ice truck killer!! The ice truck killer was really big during the first season! OMG this book is so dissapointing domt base this 15 page book on the t.v. series! So i say dont read it but if you even read this whole review go watch Dextef the t.v. show! You will like it if you like killer/mystery shows/books! Hope you enjoy! Byebye

    !

    I was hoping to see the Dexter we all know and love, but I guess he deserves a night off once in awhile.

    ...?

    Lame. Dexter's modus operandi does not include him having a drink with his victims and NOT killing them. Also its only 15 pages so there really wasn't any room for a story anyway.

    Fast and fun read

    I am a Dexter fan, and felt that the author of this fan fiction did a good job of capturing the style of Jeff Lindsay, who, if you don't know, is the creator and author of the book series the show Dexter is based on. It is a good read if you enjoy the character even without the killing.
