ABOUT THE BOOK

The first season of Dexter was a sleeper hit for Showtime that surpassed their greatest expectations for rating-related success. Season 2 followed the same trend and solidified Dexter as a franchise and lead character Dexter Morgan, played by Michael C. Hall, as a pop-culture icon. With great success comes additional pressure, however, and as the Season 3 premiere date loomed, fans were asking how the production team could top the past two seasons without duplicating themselves.

If Showtime was anxious about the show’s performance, the Season 3 premiere quelled any doubts with TV Guide reporting a new ratings record for the show with 1.22 million viewers, beating the previous record by more than 20 percent. The finale delivered even more viewers, with Variety estimating that more than 1.5 million people tuned in to see what would become of Dexter Morgan as the season came to a close. Add in Golden Globe nominations for best dramatic series and best actor, and Dexter was unanimously considered a blockbuster success by business standards.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Life has gone back to normal for Dexter Morgan following the deaths of Sgt. Doakes and Lila in Season 2. Well, as normal as life can get for a Miami blood-splatter analyst who moonlights as a serial-killing vigilante, that is. Things are good with Rita and Dexter feels safe to hunt again. And hunt he does.

Things get sticky, however, when Dexter stalks a murdering drug dealer named Freebo. Freebo gets into a fight with another man, who ends up attacking Dexter. Dexter kills him in self-defense: his first kill of an otherwise innocent man with no planning or preparation. Meaning: No Code. To make matters worse, the victim is revealed to be the brother of assistant district attorney Miguel Prado.
