Dexter by Jeffry P Lindsay( Visual )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To satisfy his interest in blood and to facilitate his own crimes, Dexter Morgan (played by Michael C. Hall), works as a blood spatter analyst for the 'Miami Metro Police Department,' visiting crime scenes and helping figure out (with an amazing 'intuitive' sense) what happened. He has an avocation, too: during his off hours, he tracks down some very, very bad people who for various reasons have eluded the proper authorities. Seems his adoptive father, a cop himself, taught the kid how to channel his dark side in a "positive" direction; and so, having captured these evildoers, Dexter dispatches them with clinical precision, thus making him a serial killer who snuffs serial killers. Although his drive to kill is unflinching, he is easily able to emulate normal emotions and keep up his appearance as a socially-responsible human being
