The fourth in the series, and much, much better than the ill-conceived Dexter in the Dark, which I read last year. Gone are the overt attempts to supernaturally mythologise serial killers, and the Dark Passenger slips closer to the metaphor it once was for the thing inside. It's a funny read, with little turns of phrase making me laugh out loud a few times, although it struggles for an ending, seeming to find one by default rather than ingenuity. While this is a mixed bag of a review, and I'm forced to admit that the TV series based on the books may actually have surpassed the source, it's never less than a thoroughly entertaining read, and that's something to admire in itself.
