This book is a fall from twisted grace for this series. The standard arc is present - Miami serial killer to catch, someone finds out Dexter's killer identity, then it's a game of cat and mouse to see which killer finds the other one first.

This arc however seems lazy in comparison. Deb finds the Miami serial killer bad guy all by herself in the first 1/3 of the book - Dexter is not present for any of the police work but is instead cast in the role of baby sitter for Deb's son. The game if cat and mouse between Dexter and the killer who knows his identity is boring as Dexter seems to have list his logical and precise mind. Doakes makes the obligatory appearance threatening Dexter and Rita is just a stumbling mess who can't complete a sentence, turns into a mean drunk but is then a doting housewife by the end of the book.

I was extremely unimpressed with this book. In each book in this series the Miami serial killer gets more twisted and this book was about 5 steps backwards for this series which is disappointing.
