Dexter Morgan is a fictional serial killer and the creation of American novelist Jeff Lindsay. Most will recognize the Dexter character (as portrayed by Michael C. Hall) from the television series on Showtime, but before Dexter made it to the television screen, he was a character in Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter novel.

Although the TV series has continued with original stories beyond the first novel in Jeff Lindsay’s series (which was adapted into the first season of the show), the show continues to borrow aspects of the novels. The series concluded after 8 novels with Dexter is Dead. Below is the order in which the Dexter series of novels has been published:
