Overview

Lights. Camera. Murder. The Dexter series continues with a wild ride through Hollywood.
 
Mega-star Robert Chase is famous for losing himself in his characters. When he and a group of actors descend on the Miami Police Department for "research," Chase becomes fixated on Dexter Morgan, the blood spatter analyst with a sweet tooth and seemingly average life. Chase shadows Dexter's every move, trying to learn what makes him tick. However, Dexter's favorite pastime of hunting down the worst killers who've escaped legal prosecution—and introducing them to his special brand of justice—presents, well, a bit of a problem. It's a secret best kept out of the spotlight if Dexter wants to stay out of the electric chair, but even Dexter isn't immune to the call of fame. . . .

This book was a real treat. The timing was great, too, since I was really missing the Dexter TV show. Dexter's Final Cut is a dark and entertaining read. The author is at his very best. I was glued to the book throughout and really enjoyed the ending. My favorite Dexter book so far. The only bad thing about this book is the sadness you feel when it is over--you immediately want to read the next in the series! But there isn't a next. Hopefully the author will continue Dark Dexter's Dramatic saga. I am ready to pre-order my copy.

Dexter’s Final Cut is the seventh book in the popular Dexter series by American author, Jeff Lindsay. Dexter Morgan, blood spatter expert with the Miami Dade Police Force (and everyone’s favourite serial killer), and his ever-scowling sister, Sergeant Deborah Morgan, are assigned by Captain Matthews in a show of goodwill to assist Big Ticket Network in the making of a TV pilot for a police drama. So the very beautiful and popular actress, Jacqueline Forrest, shadows Sergeant Deborah and Dexter is shadowed by the equally popular Robert Chase. While the real police work is left to the useless Sergeant Anderson, Deb soon finds a way to be involved; Dexter, meanwhile, already unsettled by having his every mannerism aped, is intrigued by the discovery of a mutilated corpse in a dumpster, a murder that rouses his own Dark Passenger. This is a welcome distraction from Dexter’s home life: a parent /teacher conference, weekends spent painting the new house and packing up the old one, while Astor and Rita continuously snipe at each other. Filled with black humour and dry wit, this instalment also features a stalker, fire ants, a paedophile, the shock death of a main character, some wonderfully inventive insults and the usual cleverly descriptive commentaries on Miami traffic: “…the steady lines of cars were squeezing together, coagulating in loud, angry knots and beginning to form a motionless scab on the highways” as just one example. Dexter abandons his usual occupation to become a body guard and a bit part actor, then departs even further from his usual practice to make a daylight kill. Rita maintains her usual unfinished sentences; Cody maintains his usual silence (and is noticeably absent from the final scenes); Deborah maintains her usual crankiness and foul language; only Dexter behaves in an uncharacteristic manner, becoming dazzled by an actress, tempted by a life of luxury and remaining totally oblivious to blindingly obvious clues. While Lindsay’s writing style always ensures an entertaining read, not all readers will be pleased with the cliff-hanger ending.

Sometimes I find myself wondering if the author draws inspiration from the television show regarding certain events, but overall they go in pretty different directions. This one even went in a different direction from the rest of the series, and I was surprised by how much that bothered me. Overall, still pretty enjoyable. And the major cliffhanger at the end ensures that I'm hoping for more, and I will be looking for the next one next fall.

I love the Dexter series, books and show, but I feel that everything in this book from about the halfway point on was just highly unsatisfactory. Definitely my least favorite book of the series.

I love all the Dexter books! Currently listening to all of them again on audiobook. So sad to see the series end, and as usual I am never happy with the ending. But keeps pace with the others in this wonderfully dark series.

Very good continuation of the series, was surprised on the behavior of Dexter but it was a good story and always left me wanting to read more, i couldn't put it down. At the end i wanted it to keep going and i am waiting for the next in series to come out.

BYE-BYE, DEXTER, GOOD-BYE! Having just finished DEXTER’S FINAL CUT, book seven of the eight-book series, it’s time for me to bid a fond farewell to my old literary friend, Dexter Morgan, police blood-splatter expert, sociopath, and serial killer. Yes, I did say there were eight books in the series, but I’ve already read and reviewed book eight, which so differed from the ending of the TV series that it started me on my marathon read. This book was a good one for me to end on, because it was a pretty decent read, chock full of all sorts of plot-line related incidents as regards the making of a TV series, all coming across as if it had likely been gleaned by the author from his having sat, first-hand, in on a lot of the TV shoots during the filming of the Dexter TV series. If I continued to be disappointed by Dexter’s continuing journey into exploring human emotions, this time envy … by his Dark Passenger again proving to be less all-seeing and all-powerful than I’d once mistakenly thought … by Dexter’s sister still proving herself more self-serving, needing Dexter’s macabre expertise in solving her police cases and escalating her career … by Dexter’s psychopathic stepchildren a tad annoying, as was the continued whining of his wife … all of that was forgiven by me in the end. If, in conclusion, I was, perhaps, feeling far too familiar with Dexter and his world, much as if they had become friends who had possibly overstayed their welcome, I have no regrets. And, I doubt there’ll be all that many regrets for any readers who decide to take on the series for their reading enjoyment.
