Miami´s best-dressed serial killer is back and on the prowl - at least he would be if he could shake off his permanent shadow. Ever since their paths first crossed, Sergeant Doakes hasn´t let Dexter Morgan out of his sight. Dexter may well be the Miami PD´s blood-spatter analyst, but Sgt. Doakes has a pretty good idea of how Dex likes to spend his free time, and he´s determined to catch him in the act. Dex hasn´t killed in months and is getting twitchy. To throw Doakes off his scent, he´s spending more time with Rita, his girlfriend. But no matter how many cosy nights they spend in front of the TV, Doakes is still watching. Then a body turns up, horribly mutilated and barely alive. To trap the torturer, Doakes and Dexter will have to work together - if they can trust each other. It´s a devil´s pact, and one of them will have to be the bait.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Lindsay. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000809/bk_orio_000809_sample.mp3.

I KILLED MY PARENTS.Seventeen-year-old Tyler Hadley posted an invitation on Facebook: party at my crib tonight. But this was no ordinary house party in the Florida suburbs; it was a grisly crime scene. Later that night, Tyler revealed to his best friend, Michael, that he´d bludgeoned his parents to death with a hammer. Michael didn´t believe him…until he entered the master bedroom and saw the bodies of Tyler´s parents on the floor - murdered, beyond the shadow of a doubt. ´´THEY DESERVED IT.´´Mary Jo and Blake Hadley had always known their son had a dark side.

This riveting account by an award-winning journalist takes you deep inside the mind of a troubled teenager - and behind the scenes of a true American nightmare… 1. Language: English.
