Book 110: "Dexter in the Dark" by Jeff Lindsay

Title: Dexter In The Dark (Dexter Series 3)
Author: Jeff Lindsay
Read in:  Trade Paperback
Genre: Crime, Thriller
Publisher: Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group

Book three in the Dexter series, so far, it was my least favorite. While Lindsay maintained the sarcastic humor and dark feel of the book, the story did not seem as tightly written as the first two. I felt that the overall mystery of this book was not well explained or put together. I recognize that Dexter was lost with the reader, but that when it came to the end, I just wasn't quite sure how we had gotten there. Everything was, simply put, too jumbled for my taste.

I won't say how the book ends or give anything major away (in my opinion) but for safety sake, if you don't want to know too much about the book's main problem, I suggest you stop reading now, knowing that I will continue the series, I was just a little less impressed than I was with the first two. So, spoiler(ish) content here we come.
