RARA-AVIS: Re: Jeff Lindsay

I finished DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER recently and enjoyed it quite a bit, although I wouldn't describe it as hardboiled or noir. Dexter works in the Miami police department as a blood spatter expert, and also happens to be a serial killer with a twist--a serial killer who only hunts other serial killers. It is possible that someone with a VERY broad definition of noir might think this book fits, but I can't imagine anyone calling this hardboiled.
