An extract from 'Dexter: Investigating Cutting Edge Television', edited by Douglas L. Howard:

Based upon the successful Jeff Lindsay novel 'Darkly Dreaming Dexter', Showtime's and FX's 'Dexter' continues to raise the bar on television drama, as it chronicles the grisly exploits of a police blood spatter expert who moonlights as a serial killer (or vice versa). Unlike other serial killers, however, Dexter only kills the bad guys, a distinction that sets up one of the primary ethical conflicts of the show, for Dexter as well as for the viewer. Including a complete episode guide to the first three seasons, and an exclusive interview with 'Darkly Dreaming Dexter' author Jeff Lindsay, 'Dexter' brings together an international group of critics and scholars to offer the first lively investigation of this show's many issues, contexts, and complexities. It considers such topics as Dexter as a vigilante hero, Dexter and psychoanalysis, the Politics of 'Dexter', and the intriguing international reception of the series.
